London, UK: Altitude Angel, the world’s leading UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) technology provider, today announced mission planning platform, Drone Harmony, has opted to embed Altitude Angel’s market-leading data in its flight mapping solutions.
Drone Harmony is a software company developing a data capture platform that enables enterprises to capture quality data of infrastructure assets, thus addressing the main hurdle encountered when attempting to tap into digitalisation benefits: the lack of complete, quality, and up-to-date digital databases representing the enterprise assets.
Drone Harmony will draw on Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM system for accurate, real-time, and relevant geospatial data.
Drone Harmony‘s market-first 3D data capture platform consists of fully integrated mobile and web applications and cloud service. It is designed to be globally deployable, easy to incorporate into enterprises’ infrastructure workflow supports widely available ‘off-the-shelf’ drones.
The key enabling technology is an automated mission planning capability that exploits GIS, CAD, and shape data about the inspected asset’s geometry and its environment to generate and execute safe and optimised data capture missions in complex use cases. Its platform is the first to incorporate a full 3D working interface.
On partnering with Drone Harmony, Richard Ellis, Altitude Angel, Chief Business Officer, said: “We’re thrilled to be partnering with Drone Harmony and providing them with the richest UTM data picture, not only for Switzerland, but Europe and beyond.
Martin Fuchsberger, Drone Harmony, founder, and Chief Executive Officer, added: “With Altitude Angel, our operators always have up to date UTM information at their fingertips, thereby ensuring safe drone flights. We are excited to continue building on this foundation, adding safety benefits for our customers, such as flight authorization (LAANC) and RemoteID services.”
