AirMap and Kespry have announced a partnership that brings AirMap’s airspace intelligence, including airspace advisories, wind, and weather, to Kespry’s automated UAV drone operations.
Kespry manufactures the autonomous Kespry drone, part of an end-to-end flight planning and data analytics platform that provides customers in mining, construction, insurance, and other industries with actionable business insights. The Kespry drone can take off, gather high-resolution aerial data, avoid obstacles, and land without the help of a human pilot, helping industry customers scale their operations easily and efficiently.
According to a press statement: “Kespry is the first in the drone industry to integrate airspace intelligence from AirMap’s contextual airspace offering, which tailors rules and conditions to the exact specifications of each mission, including operator certification, flight location, and speed, height, and weight requirements. Contextual airspace features are currently available to users of AirMap’s web and mobile apps, and will be released to the entire AirMap community via a contextual airspace API in 2018.”
