by DRONELIFE Staff Writer Ian Crosby
Today, SPH Engineering, a multiproduct drone software company, and AirData UAV have announced a new integration and partnership. The duo are collaborating to offer pilots a seamless and simple way to track and manage their fleets by automatically synchronizing flight data from SPH Engineering’s UgCS, a globally recognized tool for enhanced UAV mission planning and flight control software solutions, to AirData, the largest online drone fleet data management and real-time flight streaming platform.
“Thanks to the new AirData and UgCS integration, our pilots are able to focus on the task at hand knowing the flight logs are being seamlessly monitored and archived,” said PrecisionHawk’s Data Collection Director John Cannon. “With both AirData and UgCS offering unique capabilities and with a minimal learning curve for our pilots, the simple to use integration has become a part of our daily operations.”
AirData serves more than 200,000 users with 19 million flights uploaded so far, processing an average of 20,000 flights per day, with high-resolution data stored with each flight. The platform is utilized by large fleet operators around the world not only as a logbook, but also as a comprehensive flight safety data analysis and crash prevention platform, with advanced maintenance, pilot tracking, and live streaming. Meanwhile, UgCS is used in more than 150 countries in a broad range of fields, including environmental, archeological, engineering and mining, agricultural and biological.
SPH Engineering and AirData have worked closely in order to provide an easy-to-use and automatic method to synchronize flight logs with AirData. This new integration will transmit comprehensive flight information from UgCS and will leverage AirData’s crash prevention algorithms, pilot and equipment alerting, as well as maintenance tracking without the need of manual interference.
“We are excited to partner with SPH Engineering and provide our customers with the ability to utilize the advanced and dynamic capabilities of UgCS in their drone operations, all while reducing flight risk, maximizing automation, and maintaining compliance with AirData,” said Eran Steiner, founder and CEO of AirData.
In order to benefit from the new integration, the AirData UgCS sync utility can be downloaded directly to users’ desktops, with download instructions available at https://app.airdata.com/wiki/Help/UgCS
“I am delighted to see the result of our R&D partnership with AirData UAV,” said Alexey Dobrovolskiy, CTO, SPH Engineering. “Together we have advanced a method to synchronize flight data and maintain sustainable and safe data collection and processing. ”
