GE’s AiRXOS‘ new solution for energy drone programs provides everything energy companies need for UAS operations: from safe flight to usable insights.
Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) provider AiRXOS has announced “a comprehensive Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) solution for Energy organizations to plan, schedule, operate and monitor all facets of their UAS operations from a single platform,” says an AiRXOS press release.
AiRXOS’ new solution is an end-to-end system, designed to help large energy enterprises manage every aspect of their drone program. The “Enterprise Energy Solution provides digital compliance, full Situational Awareness of airspace and assets, inspection, emergency response/disaster recovery capabilities, analytics, and asset performance tools all in one, connected platform,” says the release. “The Enterprise Energy Solution runs on AiRXOS’ Air Mobility™ Platform – a secure, cloud-based, extensible platform that enables easy integration of an energy organization’s current applications and other UAS Service Suppliers (USS), as well as supports the full lifecycle of UAS Energy operations.”
“Infrastructure inspections with traditional manned aircraft are dangerous, inefficient, and expensive,“ said Mark Lanphear, AiRXOS’ Senior Vice President of Global Sales and Business Development. “Now more than ever energy organizations are looking for solutions to help them deliver safe, scalable, and repeatable operations for greater economic viability. To achieve scale, they need a centralized and standardized view of all operations, manned and unmanned. It’s why we developed the Enterprise Energy Solution – to deliver energy organizations a truly comprehensive platform that brings all UAS lifecycle operations into one view – from enterprise wide infrastructure inspection and surveillance, to asset and crew management, Situational Awareness and emergency operations after a natural disaster – all on one platform.”
AiRXOS’ new solution fills a need for large enterprises developing drone programs. Drones are increasingly valuable in the energy industry: but compliance and management for drone flights represent a complex and unfamiliar problem for the enterprise. An all-in-one platform from a respected provider removes a major barrier for the scale and adoption of drone technology.
