The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI), Willis Programs and Global Aerospace have partnered to develop DroneGuard, an unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) insurance solution for AUVSI members.
Portsmouth, N.H.-based Willis Programs, a unit of Willis Towers Watson, has been providing insurance programs since 1962. The new AUVSI insurance program is underwritten by London-headquartered Global Aerospace, a provider of aerospace insurance.
DroneGuard is designed for unmanned system owners and operators. The program delivers a range of coverage in a package that includes protection for physical damage, third-party liability and personal injury, as well as risk-management services.
“With the extraordinary growth of commercial UAS in the United States, the time is right to bring DroneGuard to market,” says Chris Proudlove, senior vice president of Global Aerospace. “Featuring integrated safety assurance and risk management, DroneGuard will help AUVSI members grow their businesses with the knowledge that they are protected by an insurance program tailored to their exposures.”
