AirMap, a provider of airspace information and services for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), has released the AirMap app for iOS and Apple Watch.
Through the app, operators can access low-altitude airspace advisories, create flights, file digital flight notices to over 80 airports and manage UAS.
In collaboration with the American Association of Airport Executives, AirMap recently launched the Digital Notice and Awareness System, which allows UAS operators to provide airports with real-time digital information about the location of their flights. Airports access this information through the AirMap D-NAS dashboard, which provides a map view of flights in proximity to the airport and the option to contact the UAS operator directly.
A UAS operator may send an encrypted digital ﬂight notice to a secure dashboard at an airport’s operations center through a variety of interfaces, including the iOS and Apple Watch apps, the AirMap website, or various airport websites incorporating AirMap services. Soon, it will be available for the flying apps provided by drone manufacturers DJI, Yuneec and 3DRobotics.
“The iOS app is the newest tool in our suite of technologies that allows people to communicate with our airspace management system,” comments Greg McNeal, co-founder of AirMap.
The AirMap iOS app is available for download in the App Store. Features and capabilities of the AirMap iOS app are available to manufacturers and app developers via the AirMap software development kit.
