Knowing when and where you can fly your drone is not always easy to determine. This is the case for hobbyists, but you can imagine that for enterprise drone operators with teams of drone pilots and fleets of drones this process becomes even more challenging. There are so many different aspects to take into consideration before you launch a number drones into the air. How close are you to airports, heliports, federal prisons, or other sensitive areas? Are there any TFRs in place that might prevent you from flying that day? What is the status of your LAANC authorizations? Especially for large commercial or enterprise drone operators it can be a challenge to stay on top of this and to manage the operations effectively. Well, this is where Kittyhawk’s new solution, Kittyhawk Dynamic Airspace comes in. Their operating system connects all the different data points and planned drone operations into a single system that provides a higher level of control and compliance for commercial drone operations. It also allows you to look at your locations, your annotations and any points of interest. You can read the company’s press release below.
