Hitachi has launched a drone platform solution expanding their existing infrastructure inspection services portfolio with an AI assisted, drone-based service.
LAANC is the Low-Altitude Authorization & Notification Capability. This service automates the application and approval process for UAS pilots wishing to get access to controlled airspace near airports under Part 107, through near real-time processing of airspace authorizations below approved altitudes in controlled airspace. If approved, pilots now receive their authorization in near-real time, compared to periods up to 60 or even 90 days for the manual process. Since September 2018, LAANC is available at nearly 300 air traffic facilities covering approximately 500 airports in the United States. The complete list of facilities taking part in LAANC is available here.

Several Belgian cities take the lead in the use of drones in emergency situations by joining the Urban Air Mobility initiative of the European Innovation Partnership (EIP-SCC), supported by the European Commission. Ghent and Brussels have already signed the Manifesto.
July 16, 2018. Melbourne, FL– Today, Florida-based Autonomous Aerial Systems (AAS) company Aeronyde and Belgian Unmanned Traffic Management provider Unifly announced a partnership to bring advanced UAV technology to emergency responders. The companies will integrate Unifly’s Unmanned Traffic Management services, along with Aeronyde’s system for Autonomous flight, to create an efficient self-flying system for police and fire departments.
The Aeronyde-Unifly partnership will create an autonomous system to enable emergency responders to scale their drone operations. The resulting system will offer on-demand dispatching of registered and authorized drones, and will deliver real-time situational awareness of scenes of distress.
Shenzhen, China – June 11th, 2018 – Huawei Technologies Co., Ltd and Unifly N.V have signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) to cooperate in the field of Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) systems. The MoU covers both research and development, and a joint market approach to Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS, or drone) management.
The ability to perform natural drone operations inside the normal manned operations at an airport has been duly proved at Pori airport in Finland, last May 17th. For 13 hours, CanardDrones, ANS Finland and Unifly worked together performing six 40 minutes inspection batches in full coordination and with full reliability of all systems. During this operation ILS and PAPI systems where inspected by drones using unmanned traffic management solutions provided by Unifly.
