Done operator ZM Interactive (ZMI) has selected Iris Automation’s Casia detect and avoid (DAA) system to support Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) operations by its xFold industrial military-grade drones, according to a report in Unmanned Systems Technology.
ZMI will provide the option of Casia integration into all of its drone platforms. The combined solution provides customers with an all-in-one package ready for advanced missions, including safe BVLOS operations.
Iris Automation previously conducted the first Part 107 FAA-approved BVLOS drone flights without a requirement for visual observers or ground-based radar. The FAA’s approval for the flight was granted based on the utilization of the Casia detect-and-avoid system. As part of the partnership with ZMI, Iris will also offer ZMI customers who select Casia with regulatory support for Part 107 waiver writing and regulatory approval processes to secure the necessary permissions for their unique BVLOS drone operations.
