AirMap and senseFly Partner to Advance Safety for Commercial Drones

SANTA MONICA, CA and CHESEAUX, Switzerland --- AirMap and senseFly partner to deliver AirMap's airspace services to senseFly's eBee fixed wing drones and albris quadcopter. AirMap's airspace platform services will be directly integrated into senseFly's eMotion flight and data management software, providing professional operators and their drones with critical information and tools to enable safe missions. AirMap's industry-leading situational awareness data include airspace rules and advisories, locations of critical infrastructure and real-time alerts about nearby manned air traffic flying in the surrounding airspace. senseFly drones will also begin leveraging AirMap's flight planning tools and solutions for Unmanned Traffic Management, including technology that will allow senseFly drones to submit digital flight notices to more than 125 airports.

senseFly's professional aerial imaging drones have flown nearly 400,000 successful flights to date, mapping over 49 million acres across seven continents. While a human operator can take control at any time, senseFly drones are typically flown automatically, capturing photos and landing themselves. Following the creation of a terrain-adjusted flight plan in eMotion, the company's latest eBee Plus drone can fly for 59 minutes and map up to 15 square miles on one battery charge.

The AirMap platform powers the vast majority of the world's drones, providing the industry's most comprehensive, reliable and real-time airspace information and services. Millions of drones and hundreds of drone manufacturers and developers rely on the platform to access and share the data they need to fly safely in low-altitude airspace. More than 125 airports use AirMap's airspace management dashboard to open surrounding airspace to drones, view past and current drone flights, accept digital flight notices and communicate with drone operators.
