Drone operators

Powered by SkyGrid’s AerialOS, SkyGrid Flight Control makes it easy for drone operators to explore the airspace, automate flights, and get real-time insights as one integrated solution, enabling safe, secure, and efficient operations. With over a hundred thousand downloads, the all-in-one drone application is available for free on the Apple App Store for iPhone and iPad users across the world and provides the following features for users:

  • Airspace intelligence: Provides a map of airspace classes, boundaries, temporary flight restrictions, notices to airmen, and other advisories
    Weather layers: Details local precipitation, wind speed and direction, temperature, cloud cover, and more
    Automated flight planning: Automatically generates area exploration, waypoint, and multi-objective missions based on custom flight parameters, such as desired speed, altitude, and location
    Autonomous flight execution: Launches the mission to autonomously perform the predefined flight plan or scheduled flight

“At SkyGrid, we are committed to creating an intelligent airspace management system that is an essential component for integrating unmanned aircraft of all types in the global airspace,” said Amir Husain, Founder and CEO of SkyGrid. “The recognition from the Webby Awards is a testament to the innovation and hard work of the SkyGrid team, who are dedicated to creating solutions that will help shape the future of unmanned air travel and drive positive change in the world.”
