DroneDeploy, the cloud-based drone software platform, today unveiled its new flight logs solution, available now with partners: Airnest, Drone Complier, Drone Logbook, Healthy Drones, Kitty Hawk, NV Drones and Skyward. Direct access to actual flight logs enables operators to eliminate the manual data entry process for capturing flight data, and allows them to easily track and monitor flights for regulatory compliance, insurance and fleet maintenance.
DroneDeploy users can access logs of their DroneDeploy mapping flights which provide a highly detailed record of drone battery life, GPS positioning, camera activity, and flight activities often required for regulatory compliance and insurance. Leveraging their actual flight log data with DroneDeploy’s partners enables businesses to:
- Automate logging and recording of all drone flights for compliance and insurance purposes
- Monitor equipment performance to recommend preventative maintenance
- Explore trends in flight characteristics to define best practices
“Many large companies and enterprises are looking to scale their drone program and do it efficiently,” said Jonathan Evans, CEO of Skyward. “Now, with access to DroneDeploy flight logs, Skyward customers can manage flight information across their entire fleet.
DroneDeploy’s offering provides businesses the flexibility to select what works best for them from a variety of industry drone compliance, insurance and fleet management partners. This development continues DroneDeploy’s effort to address the needs of the commercial drone market by developing a best-of-breed offering with ecosystem partners.
The integrations come on the heels of DroneDeploy’s launch of a free Drone Mapping Directory, a network of more than 500 pilots for businesses looking for commercial drone mapping professionals.
“The long-term success of the commercial drone industry requires greater cooperation, including software standards that are scalable for the enterprise,” said Mike Winn, CEO and co-founder of DroneDeploy. “We are building capabilities today to empower the full-scale drone operations of tomorrow. Our partners share our vision of creating more holistic, efficient and scalable drone solutions for business applications.”
