RALEIGH, NC--(Marketwired - May 04, 2016) -
PrecisionHawk Inc. -- a leading provider of aerial data and safety platforms for drones -- has expanded its previously announced partnership with
Harris Corporation (
"In a short amount of time, PrecisionHawk and Harris have aligned their vision to deliver information and technology to the market faster," said Tyler Collins, VP LATAS at PrecisionHawk. "Harris brings years of experience integrating systems that work together to support a holistic air traffic control approach, and we believe their expertise on the manned aviation side is going to help LATAS, in the same way, serve the unmanned community."
Harris' real-time surveillance database of manned and unmanned traffic is being built into the LATAS platform to give drone pilots a clear picture of their surroundings, while Harris is also integrating LATAS into their systems to give customers, such as UAS test ranges, airports, and potentially manned pilots', visibility of drones that may be sharing the airspace.
"Harris has decades of experience providing air traffic management communications and surveillance solutions for the FAA and other ANSPs throughout the world," said Ed Sayadian, president, Harris Mission Networks. "Joining forces with PrecisionHawk will combine our expertise with PrecisionHawk's innovation to bring solutions that bridge the gap between the National Airspace System and the low-altitude UAS airspace of the future."
Today at the AUVSI Xponential conference in New Orleans, PrecisionHawk and Harris are presenting their strategic plan for airspace integration. The white paper presentation will lay out the steps to move the industry to more advanced drone operations sooner, such as beyond visual line of site flight. The session, titled 'Pathway to Open Skies for Drones' is open to all attendees on Wednesday, May 4 from 2:30-3pm in room 275 and 276.
