Highly invested in the UAS community, a member of the Small UAV Coalition and AUVSI as well as having a Space Act Agreement with NASA in their pocket in support of their UTM prototype effort that involves more than 200 industry stakeholders, Analytical Graphics, Inc. (AGI) is using this expertise to develop their SKYVUE services.
The company has now established their SKYVUE, LLC, business unit to deliver Unmanned Air System (UAS) Traffic Management (UTM) software services for the beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) needs of UAS operators. SKYVUE will be based in Exton, Pennsylvania, with a supporting office in Washington DC. The firm will also add additional strategic partners in order to accelerate the timeline of the commercial UTM software.
SKYVUE will use AGI’s commercial situational awareness technology, derived from the firm's suite of software products developed over the past 27 years, to provide air navigation services including airspace management, real-time flight monitoring, and deconfliction. The SKYVUE business unit further expands AGI’s situational awareness technology in the air domain; analogous to how AGI’s ComSpOC LLC provide commercial space situational awareness and traffic management services. Through ComSpOC operations, AGI and its strategic partners have proven the ability for commercial companies to deliver traffic management solutions which surpass existing legacy systems in accuracy, speed, and transparency at a fraction of traditional development and operating costs.
Paul Graziani, the CEO and co-founder of AGI, related that there is a close alignment of his company's situational awareness and decision support capabilities with the technical needs of UAS traffic management.
