Aeryon, known for its small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) for commercial, public safety, and military applications worldwide, today introduced AeryonLive, an integrated Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform for enterprise UAS deployments. Comprised of complementary web-based solutions—AeryonLive Video and Telemetry, and AeryonLive Fleet Management—the platform will evolve to offer additional capabilities throughout 2016.
Aeryon is bringing this multifaceted SaaS solution to market to enable more scalable and efficient UAS deployments in commercial and public safety segments. AeryonLive is designed to ensure the right information gets to the right people, at the right time, to enable prompt and accurate decision-making – especially for large, geographically-dispersed fleets.
AeryonLive Video and Telemetry delivers low-latency (less than 5 seconds glass-to-glass), live video streaming with a real-time readout of critical aspects of aircraft location and performance. Ideal for first responders and critical infrastructure inspectors, the video can be delivered to any screen (from a monitor in a command center, to a smartphone in the field) without the need for client applications, and extends control of certain aspects of the video feed to remote viewers.
"As a first-response agency, it is imperative that our chain of command see what the SkyRanger sees, without delay. Watching the live video as well as telemetry gives everyone involved the critical data that's needed when responding to incidents. In the three months of trialing AeryonLive, it has become an indispensable asset to our UAS operations," said Mark Fairclough, Station Manager, Greater Manchester Fire and Rescue Service.
AeryonLive Fleet Management provides an online connection to the UAS to deliver deep, subsystem-level analytics on all aspects of usage and performance of the fleet. This enables UAS operators to automate record-keeping and maintain compliance with airspace regulators and insurers. Aeryon is liaising with Global Aerospace, the largest underwriter of aviation insurance in the world, to offer competitive terms of insurance to operators who manage their fleet and reporting data using AeryonLive Fleet Management.
Jeremy Prine, Logistics Manager for Talon Aerolytics, said, "AeryonLive Fleet Management gives me the real-time status of our aircraft and sub systems as the fleet data is automatically uploaded. This enables me to provide proactive solutions for our operations team, while minimizing inefficiencies and pilot down time. In addition to lowering the inherent cost associated with flight data management, AeryonLive Fleet Management eliminates the logistics headaches associated with traditional UAS systems."
"Insuring small UAS for commercial use is an emergent opportunity for our business, and today the absence of real data makes it hard to assess risk of loss and write policies commensurate with that risk," commented Arthur Meerdink, AVP at Global Aerospace Canada. "We rely on the operator to provide us with an accurate record of the status of the aircraft and the operating environment which may have contributed to the loss. We view UAS operators who utilize AeryonLive or data management systems as presenting more informative risk parameters than the typical UAS operator, and our policy terms and conditions will reflect this reality."
AeryonLive is available globally to Aeryon SkyRanger customers today. AeryonLive Fleet Management subscriptions begin with a 90-day free trial, which can be accessed at live.aeryon.com.
