Way before then, in 2012, a team of airspace controllers,
pilots and engineers shared a vision.
They were confronted by the growing number of drones in the airspace and the lack of tools
to manage or even visualize them. You can see the drone, but where’s the operator? How do you connect to them?
Our main mission is to develop software applications that facilitate drone traffic in the very-low-altitude airspace. The focus is always on safety for all stakeholders involved.
Our innovative tools inform drone operators where it is safe and legal to fly their drone and enable authorities and other aviation stakeholders to track the drone traffic and manage their airspace.
Today we have an amazing opportunity to shape the airspace of tomorrow. We believe that collaboration and openness are vital. This is why Unifly partners with many different research groups and companies, both in Belgium and abroad, in Europe as well as worldwide.
A fragmented landscape like Europe has many different regulatory bodies, rules and regulations.
Unifly offers an open platform to align everyone’s interests and to ensure an air-traffic management system for drones to increase visibility and prevent collisions.
Unifly supports SWIM standards. This is the standard protocol in aviation. We use it to communicate with operators and drones. We use real-time messaging, we incorporate reliable data from worldwide sources for global data coverage. This includes weather information, NOTAMs, obstacles, no-fly zones, to make sure we can provide reliable and trustworthy data for your location. The Unifly platform combines all these data to validate and manage the flights in real-time.
