High Lander and Sentrycs have collaborated to develop a combined solution aimed at improving drone management and enforcement capabilities for authorities. The partnership brings together High Lander's proficiency in drone fleet management software with Sentrycs' expertise in integrated counter-drone technology.
Addressing the Growing Need for Drone Management
The proliferation of drone usage worldwide has led to a growing need for technology that allows public safety agencies, from aviation regulators to city municipalities, to manage and oversee airspace activity effectively. The partnership aims to address challenges such as maintaining safety with increasing aerial traffic, protecting designated no-fly zones, managing aerial conflicts, and neutralizing potential aerial threats.
Technological Integration for Improved Airspace Control
Sentrycs’ solution is designed to detect drone activity and neutralize unauthorized drones by taking control and landing them safely, a feature valuable in urban areas where drone activity is usually dense. This solution is integrated with High Lander’s Vega UTM, a software solution offering real-time monitoring of airborne activity, autonomous flight plan approvals or denials, and real-time airspace data notifications to operators.
Objective: Comprehensive Drone Management
The collaboration between High Lander and Sentrycs seeks to offer a consolidated solution that autonomously monitors airspace, coordinates flight plans, detects unauthorized flights, and facilitates the safe landing of unauthorized drones. This integration is intended to provide authorities with the means to manage drone activity and related threats more effectively.
Alon Abelson, CEO of High Lander, commented on the partnership, emphasizing the complementary nature of both solutions in consolidating airspace awareness and enabling enforcement of U-space management decisions by authorities.
Potential Impact on Drone Economy and Safety
Yoav Zaltzman, CEO of Sentrycs, spoke about the importance of collaborations with UTM providers like High Lander in achieving Sentrycs' mission to mitigate the risks posed by unauthorized drone operators. He highlighted the partnership's potential role in promoting drone adoption and contributing to a safer airspace for drone operators and the general public.
In essence, this partnership aims to improve airspace management and safety by merging the capabilities of both companies in drone technology and management, without overstepping the bounds of regulatory compliance and public safety considerations. The collaboration is positioned to aid in the regulation and coordination of drone activities in diverse airspace environments.
