In May of this past year, we were excited to be involved with the Local Government of Queensland and the Local Government Infrastructure Services (LGIS) in supporting their first of three UAS trials focused on exploring the use of drones for disaster relief management. As part of this first trial, software solutions like our Unmanned Traffic Managment (UTM) were used to help provide situational awareness to operators flying beyond line of sight.
“We applaud LGIS for hosting these trials and bringing an outstanding group of industry partners together,” commended Chris Kucera, AGI Director of Air Operations. “The trials gave AGI the opportunity to work with world class UAS operators, such as Scout Aerial, and to better understand how to support their beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations. We look forward to supporting this ongoing effort.”
This is an exciting opportunity for us in particular as we work to anticipate and understand the needs of both operators and air space regulators with regards to unmanned aircraft being introduced into national airspace.
The video above provides some highlights from the trials as well as a peek at some of the foundational analytics and benefits that our solution can bring.
