Moving past line of sight operation really is the next step in maturation for the commercial drone industry. An Israeli company, Airbotics, has now been given government authorization to operate Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS).
Airobotics is announcing that it is the first company worldwide granted with the authorization to fly fully automated drones without a pilot. The certification, that was presented by the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI), is solidifying Airobotics’ status as a world-leader in the field of automated drones, allowing for the most innovative Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) commercial drone operations.
This milestone proves that decisions and actions that were once taken by a human drone pilot, can now be taken by Airobotics’ computer software and artificial intelligence. Essentially, an authorized pilot is now replaced by an authorized computer.
This concept, of a system operating on its own, was designed and developed for the first time by Airobotics, solving some of the biggest problems for the drone market, such as high costs of labor, increased logistics around drone operations, expensive and lengthy training of aircrew as well as enabling customers that are not drone experts to perform highly complex drone missions.
Airobotics has developed a pilotless drone solution, the first of its kind in the global market.
Airobotics provides an end-to-end, fully automatic solution, which does not require a human operator, for collecting aerial data and gaining invaluable insights. The industrial grade platform is available on-site and on-demand, enabling industrial facilities to access premium aerial data in a faster, safer, more efficient way.
