A network of repair and service stations for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is officially off the ground.
Albuquerque, N.M.-based Robotic Skies hopes to recruit aviation service operators in an attempt to establish a national maintenance chain for UAVs, according to an article by the Albuquerque Journal.
The company wants to be prepared for the plethora of UAVs that will enter the U.S. national airspace system once the Federal Aviation Administration publishes its regulatory guidelines, which are due by the end of this year.
Network operators will receive service training for UAVs from Robotic Skies. In addition, the company is seeking maintenance deals with UAV manufacturers and has partnered with an Albuquerque firm ‘to provide cloud-computing and software to track all maintenance issues related to each UAV serviced through the Robotic Skies network.’
