DETROIT, MICHIGAN, UNITED STATES, February 19, 2019 – Airspace Link, a state & local government drone airspace management platform, today announced a partnership with Esri, the global market leader in geographic information system (GIS), offering the most powerful mapping and spatial analytics available. Airspace Link has been selected to join the Esri Startup Program, a coveted three-year program that helps emerging business partners bring new and innovative products to Esri customers. The initial partnership will enable Airspace Link to develop a solution to support airspace management and drone regulations at city scale leveraging ArcGIS.
“Drone technology and automated delivery has been a moving target since drones first started gaining popularity. While much of the technological focus has been on keeping drones in the air or on task, we felt it critical to address the needs of state and local government in regulating local airspace in partnership with the FAA. We offer solutions to address the last mile of ensuring drone delivery and public safety do not become mutually exclusive,” said Michael Healander, President & CEO of Airspace Link. “Esri offers a unique set of capabilities for building spatial analytics, real-time 3D GIS and data management. The partnership enables Airspace Link platform to connect government and businesses to a unified solution to make drone delivery a reality while managing safety, security and privacy for everyone”.
Airspace Link recently released the Air Registry system, a national database of approved or requested drone landing and takeoff locations. These locations are used to shape the creation of regulated drone “shipping lanes” in communities across the nation. Citizen voices in this matter are important. Whether you wish to opt-in or opt-out, you can help guide the future of drone activity in your community by registering today at registry.airspacelink.com.
