Volatus introduced its Aerieport innovation at the annual Energy Drone and Robotics Summit held in Houston.

According to the company, the drone nesting platform is ideal for conducting drone operations for surveying purposes in agricultural, renewable energy, mining, construction, oil, and gas sectors.

Volatus describes Aerieport as an all-weather solution designed to operate remotely in extreme temperatures ranging from -20 Celsius to 55 Celsius. It incorporates an onboard weather station, a four SIM, 5G, and a high-speed LTE connection, but it also has an option for Satcom linkage. It also houses an integrated ground-based detect and avoid system, a mission planner, and a remote operations system.

The company aims to expand its services to the Latin American market. “Latin America is a vast, emerging market with exciting opportunities for drones in sectors such as mining, infrastructure, renewable energy, and agriculture,” said Luc Masse, executive vice president of Volatus.
