Arctic UAV has adopted Kongsberg Geospatial’s Iris UAS airspace awareness application for its long range UAS flight operations in Canada’s Arctic region, Kongsberg announced on 24 April.
Iris provides visualisation for UAS operations. It allows a single operator to monitor multiple UAS simultaneously, and provides real-time calculation of aircraft separation and communications to enable beyond visual line-of-sight (BVLOS) operations. It provides flight range with real-time 2D and 3D visualisation of airborne track and weather data, as well as geo-fencing capabilities.
Kirt Ejesiak, chairman and CEO of Arctic UAV, said: ‘Safe BVLOS unmanned flight operations require the very best in equipment and technology. The Kongsberg Geospatial display application provides an extremely cost-effective solution to deliver airspace situational awareness and significantly improve flight safety.’
