RDARS to integrate Aloft’s traffic management products into the Eagle Watch

This update will provide the company's Eagle Watch software platform with airspace management and near instant response from the Federal Aviation Administration for flight clearance.
TORONTO — RDARS Inc., an autonomous robotics and drone technology company developing advanced systems for alarm system augmentation and surveillance, has formed a working relationship with Aloft Technologies, Inc. (Aloft) to integrate its advanced Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) applications and features into the forthcoming Eagle Watch V1.5 RC1 release.
This update will provide the company’s Eagle Watch software platform with airspace management and near instant response from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) for flight clearance.
By having access to Aloft’s UTM system, remote Eagle Watch operators can get instant airspace awareness, file and receive electronics permissions, and transmit Remote ID information as required by the FAA during the automated pre-flight and pre-landing procedures. Aloft’s UTM platform and its integration with Eagle Watch provides the remote operator with immediate situational awareness and enables compliance with the FAA’s Remote ID requirements for Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight (BVLOS) operations, and Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC), a collaboration between the FAA and private industry partners which supports unmanned Aerial Services (UAS) integration into the U.S. national airspace.
The Eagle Watch technology allows for operations to be conducted in a confined airspace, on private property, at low altitude, and with strict limitations regarding the Company’s Eagle Eye drone’s flight patterns so that operators can conduct their operations in a manner that minimizes disruptions to the surveillance area. Integrating the Aloft UTM management platform provides operators with further instant situational awareness of any potential conflict as airspace changes in real-time.
“We are excited to have RDARS integrate our new developer tools with map tiles for visualization and APIs to provide programmatic access to Aloft’s exclusive dataset and capabilities for maximum compliance and situational awareness,” said Josh Ziering, Aloft’s CTO and Co-Founder. “Enabling companies like RDARS to build Aloft UTM capabilities into their own products is how we envision the future of drone flight as operations scale and become more complex.”
