Enabling Safe, Legal, & Insured Flights for Commercial Drone Operators

We provide a digital system of record and real-time information exchange to connect the aerial robotics network.

DISPATCH, TRACK, and LOG FLIGHTS

Enterprise Fleet Management

SkyWard provides a global system of record for managing aerial robotics (AR) fleet operations around the world.  Cloud-based tools include administrative dashboards for managers and mobile apps for operators, all connected in real time. Unique, portable identities for drones and people give managers real-time visibility on assets in the field; customer requests can be efficiently dispatched; and flight operations can be digitally tracked. Logs for aircraft and personnel are automatically updated as a course of business, and the information flows to the regulator and insurer as needed.

THE RULES OF THE AERIAL ROAD

Digital AirCharts and Routing

The airspace that aerial robotics (AR) operate in starts from terra firma and extends to the upper limits of the stratosphere. Operators must navigate a host of new challenges, as well as federal and potentially state rules, to integrate with this airspace. SkyWard provides tools to clear the path for businesses with a flight operations GIS overlay that draws these evolving rules onto a map that can be easily understood by both people and autopilots.

PROTECT YOURSELF AND CUSTOMERS

Insurance Services

Not all insurers understand or cover the rapidly innovating AR business. SkyWard partners with underwriters that understand aerial robotics and seamlessly integrate with our compliance and fleet management software. We make it easy for operators to apply for and obtain insurance.  Using our fleet management system, operators can receive competitive rates and stay in compliance with insurance requirements.  The real-time information exchange with the SkyWard platform allows for the most accurate risk pricing.

FLY LEGAL

Regulatory Compliance

Getting the proper regulatory certificates, waivers, and other paperwork is required for legal and safe aviation. Exchanging documents through email or maintaining spreadsheets of data is costly and prone to time-wasting errors. The SkyWard workflow streamlines these processes to reduce the overhead of creating, submitting, and tracking applications. SkyWard users see increased acceptance rates and faster certification turn-around.
