UAS users can now make decisions about flight safety more in a more informed way.

A partnership between AirMap and Kespry will result in Kespry’s automated UAS platform being equipped with AirMap’s airspace intelligence. With just a tap, airspace rules, temporary flight restrictions, wind and weather notification and the locations of schools, prisons, hospitals, power plants and more can all be viewed.  

The new AirMap-Kespry integration provides the Kespry flight app with AirMap’s airspace intelligence. During the flight planning process, the app automatically surfaces AirMap airspace advisories, wind, and weather customized to the specific parameters of each flight, including the UAS operator’s pilot certification.

Preflight checks autofill this information in each mission plan, which helps operators move faster from field, to flight, to finish.

George Mathew, CEO and chairman of Kespry said: “The integration of AirMap’s airspace and weather notification data directly into our application will enable our users to make decisions about flight safety and compliance directly within our autonomous flight planning application.”

Kespry’s autonomous Kespry UAS is part of an “end-to-end flight planning and data analytics platform” that provides actionable business insights to a variety of customers, including those in mining, construction, insurance, and other industries. The UAS can take off, collect high-resolution aerial data, avoid obstacles, and land all on its own without intervention from a human pilot.

According to auvsi.org, Kespry is the first company in the UAS industry to integrate airspace intelligence from AirMap’s contextual airspace offering, which customizes rules and conditions to the exact specifications of each mission, including operator certification, flight location, and speed, height, and weight requirements.
