Flirtey Implements Airspace Awareness Technology

| |

Flirtey has confirmed that it has incorporated Kongsberg Geospatial’s IRIS airspace situational awareness application into the autonomous software platform that powers the company’s BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) autonomous drone operations. The addition of this technology will help Flirtey achieve certification from the FAA for these BVLOS operations.

Kongsberg Geospatial’s IRIS airspace visualization technology enables multiple drones and sensor feeds to be monitored simultaneously by a single remote operator. The software provides real-time calculation of aircraft separation and communications to enable BVLOS operations. Built on Kongsberg Geospatial’s TerraLens SDK, IRIS provides advanced real-time 2D and 3D visualization of all airborne track and weather data, as well as cues, alerts and warnings to allow the operator to more effectively monitor the complex airspace environment.

Flirtey is focused on completing the FAA’s certification process, in addition to scaling its operations in New Zealand (where the company’s technology already has regulatory certification) and expanding US production of delivery drones to meet growing demand.
