DroneOSS 2.0: A Cloud-Based, Drone-Agnostic Platform for BVLOS Ops

Virginia-headquartered ANRA Technologies has introduced the drone-agnostic, cloud-based DroneOSS 2.0 platform.

According to the company, the solution is designed to offer enterprises and service providers an open, off-the-shelf platform with real-time flight planning, automated missions, airspace management, command and control, compliance, fleet management, and data analytic packages.

The first version is already being deployed in multiple countries, says ANRA, which plans to release 2.0 next week at InterDrone in Las Vegas.

Notably, the latest release of the platform features beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) C2 capabilities. It also offers integration into multiple data analytics engines, as well as an enhanced workspace for integration into existing enterprise systems.

ANRA says low-altitude UAS traffic management is one of the company’s key focuses.

“We are participating in NASA and ICAO’s UTM programs and will be presenting at the Drone Enable UAS Industry Symposium in Montreal,” notes Jim Begley, director of business development at ANRA.

ANRA, in collaboration with NASA, says it has demonstrated how multiple UAS service suppliers (USS) can act as intermediaries between commercial operators and the FAA, air navigation service providers, or military and police forces. This provides critical information to the FAA regarding UAS operations. USS can also manage traffic for operators, take requests (or flight plans) and resolve conflict issues between operators before departure. Further, USS will provide operators with terrain, weather, surveillance and performance information, ANRA explains.
