Skyward launches the first information management solution for commercial drone operators

Skyward said it has introduced its information management solution, the first designed for commercial drone operators.

By providing this critical business infrastructure, Skyward is powering a global aerial robotics network. The cloud-based solution integrates a drone airspace map with flight planning tools and a digital system of record, supported by a team of regulatory and operational experts.

Regulators and insurers across the world need to know the who, what, when, where, and how for flight operations. Skyward is the first integrated solution to address this need for drones, and makes it easy for operators to track the specific information and airspace data needed for business, insurance or regulatory requirements.

Over 150 operators are already using Skyward in the US, Canada, Caribbean, Australia, and South Africa, for applications like agriculture, industrial inspection, construction, oil and gas surveying, as well as real estate and cinematography. Skyward is a partner in NASA´s UTM program, and a board member of the SUAV Coalition, working with Verizon, Amazon, Google and others to define the future of this industry.

Key features of the Skyward solution include:

A drone airspace map that simplifies complex aviation rules to show operators where to fly
Flight planning and logging, configured for specific requirements
Digital system of record manages personnel, drones, and equipment
Online storage for regulatory, insurance, and operational documents
Support from regulatory and operational experts for approvals, compliance and reporting
