Kittyhawk, a drone fleet management company based in San Francisco, has announced the availability of its flight logging platform on Android.
According to the company, commercial drone operators can now use Android devices to easily adhere to the recently introduced federal regulations for small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), as well as obtain pre-flight intelligence and post-flight insights.
Kittyhawk says its platform now has applications for Android, iOS and the Web.
The app allows users to check airspace and weather; create and share checklists; log flights visible to everyone in an organization; and keep track of assets such as aircraft, locations and battery cycles. For those operating in teams, this means group and fleet information can be shared across an entire organization and to every pilot in the field.
“After nearly two years of evolving the Kittyhawk experience on other ecosystems and completing a recent financing round, we knew it was time to invest in expanding into Android,” says Jon Hegranes, CEO. “We believe drone software and tools should be as cool, reliable and innovative as the aircraft we fly. Our launch on the Google Play store is another big step in fulfilling this vision.”
Kittyhawk says the platform is free and unlimited for any fleet size. It also offers premium subscriptions for more serious individuals or organizations that need team features and enterprise-grade service, according to the company.
