HAZON, PrecisionHawk partnership increases safety for commercial drone operators

HAZON Solutions, a national provider of drone inspection services, and PrecisionHawk, a provider of advanced commercial drone technologies, announced a partnership to integrate their technologies to provide better drone safety for commercial drone operations, the company said.

Starting in early November PrecisionHawk´s Low Altitude Traffic and Airspace Safety (“LATAS”) platform will be accessible within the HAZON drone fleet management software, HAZON Drone Management System (“DMS”).

LATAS is the only platform to link drones, 3D ground data and live manned aircraft data from global aviation authorities into a single system that tells commercial or hobbyist drone operators when and where it´s safe to fly.

HAZON DMS was launched as a fleet management software in May of this year with features such as operations planning, flight logging, maintenance tracking and field team reporting. HAZON leveraged decades of manned aviation experience to build the system from the ground up as a commercial operator focused program on a software as a service model.

Operating over worldwide cellular networks and satellites, the LATAS platform connects airspace management technologies, such as sense and avoid, geofencing and aircraft tracking, into a service package for commercial and recreational drone operators, as well as regulators and air traffic controllers. LATAS allows users to request, track and verify all flight operations from a central location and automatically report flight paths back to aviation authorities.

Based in Virginia Beach, HAZON Solutions is the US developer of small unmanned systems operations, capability development, training, safety and testing programs. The mission of HAZON Solutions is to conduct, support, develop and validate small unmanned systems operations. For more information visit www.hazonsolutions.com.
