Aeronyde’s Autonomous Fleet Management is now FAA LAANC-Connected
Yesterday, The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced nine new partners to its FAA’s Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) initiative, an innovative collaboration between the FAA and the drone industry that provides near real-time processing of airspace authorizations for Part 107 drone operators nationwide who fly in controlled airspace.
Aeronyde is honored to be named among the companies accepted into the LAANC program. The LAANC partnership enables Aeronyde to seamlessly work with the FAA to provide near real-time processing of airspace authorization requests for unmanned aircraft (UAS) nationwide.
Aeronyde will use the LAANC system as part of its Autonomous Aerial Vehicle platform to quickly plan and authorize flights. This dramatically decreases the wait times for flight authorization, and enables Aeronyde’s autonomous system to function efficiently and scalably.
LAANC uses airspace data, including UAS facility maps, which shows the maximum altitude around airports where the FAA may authorize operations under Part 107 in controlled airspace. The program gives drone operators the ability to interact with industry developed applications and obtain near real-time authorization from the FAA. LAANC, a foundation for developing the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management System (UTM), is now available at nearly 300 FAA air traffic facilities across the country, covering approximately 500 airports.
