Flirtey Implements Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS Airspace Awareness Technology

Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS permits a single operator to regulate a number of Flirtey Eagle drone supply techniques concurrently for Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) Operations.

Kongsberg Geospatial, developer of the TerraLens Geospatial Soft Ware Development Kit (SDK), and Flirtey, the pioneer and a frontrunner within the business drone supply trade within the US, introduced right this moment that the Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS airspace situational consciousness software has been carried out by Flirtey inside their autonomous software program platform that conducts BVLOS autonomous flight operations.  Flirtey has carried out greater than 6,000 flights to this point.

Flirtey lately introduced that it had accomplished the know-how to certify and develop U.S. manufacturing of its best-in-class autonomous drone supply system for last-mile supply. Flirtey’s know-how solves the last-mile supply drawback with quicker, decrease price, and extra handy supply, which takes automobiles off the roads, reduces CO2 emissions and will increase the general security of the transport system.

The Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS airspace visualization know-how permits a number of drones and sensor feeds to be monitored concurrently by a single distant operator and offers real-time calculation of plane separation and communications to allow BVLOS operations. Built on Kongsberg Geospatial’s trade main TerraLens SDK,  IRIS offers superior real-time 2D and 3D visualization of all airborne monitor and climate information, in addition to cues, alerts and warnings to allow a single operator to watch the advanced airspace surroundings.

“Flirtey is now taking pre-orders for its autonomous drone supply techniques, which allow companies to function their very own logistics by offering store-to-door drone supply to their clients to unlock decrease supply prices and billions in potential new income. The Kongsberg IRIS know-how is a key a part of Flirtey’s best-in-class know-how for last-mile drone supply, and Kongsberg Geospatial’s expertise powering Air Traffic Control Systems worldwide, in addition to U.S. and Australian Navy fight techniques give Flirtey and our clients nice confidence,” mentioned Flirtey Founder and CEO Matthew Sweeny. Flirtey is targeted on finishing the FAA’s certification course of, along with scaling its operations in New Zealand (the place the corporate’s know-how already has regulatory certification) and increasing US manufacturing of supply drones to satisfy rising demand.

“We’re very happy to be working with an trade chief in UAS last-mile supply like Flirtey” mentioned Ranald McGillis, President of Kongsberg Geospatial. “We’ve labored carefully with them to implement our know-how and their FAA certification can be a testomony to their world main capabilities.”
