All-in-one drone app automates every phase of flight
Airspace management system company SkyGrid, a Boeing, SparkCognition company, has launched an iPad drone application for drone operators and enterprises to automate every phase of flight in one unified solution.

The free SkyGrid Flight Control app simplifies mission planning and execution, allowing drone operators to autonomously surveil a defined area and detect objects in real time. Powered by artificial intelligence (AI) computer vision, the solution, says the company, enables more efficient search and rescue missions, disaster response, perimeter surveillance, site inspections, and more.

"Traditionally, drone operators have used several different tools to check airspace, get Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), plan and execute flights, and gather insights, but it's a manual, cumbersome process," says Amir Husain, CEO and founder of SkyGrid. "Recognizing this challenge, SkyGrid has minimized the burden on drone operators by creating one solution that automates airspace, flights, and insights. As the only drone solution built on AI and blockchain technologies, we give operators and enterprises the assurances they need to execute safe, compliant missions."

Based on the company's AerialOS, SkyGrid Flight Control enables drone operators to automate airspace authorization, mission planning, flight execution, and object detection in one end-to-end solution offering the following features and functionality:

  • Airspace intelligence : Provides a map of airspace classes, boundaries, temporary flight restrictions, notices to airmen, and other advisories.
  • Ground intelligence : Displays population density, obstacles, elevation, and more.
  • Advanced weather data : Details hyper-local precipitation, wind speed and direction, temperature, cloud cover, and more.
  • Real-time airspace authorization : Automates authorization to fly in U.S. controlled airspace under 400 feet through integration with the Federal Aviation Administration's Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) 4.0.
  • Automated mission planning : Automatically generates area exploration, waypoint, and multi-objective missions based on custom flight parameters, such as desired speed, altitude, and location.
  • Autonomous flight execution : Autonomously launches the drone and performs the pre-defined flight plan.
  • AI object recognition : Detects objects in real-time as a drone surveils the defined area with AI computer vision.

More advanced enterprise features are also available for organizations to better manage all drones, pilots, and
