Richard Parker is the CEO of Altitude Angel. Altitude Angel is building solutions for automated Air Traffic Control for UAS, accessible via standard APIs to support any vendor, any drone.
Altitude Angel is a drone cloud services company offering enhanced situational awareness information, real-time ‘air traffic control for drones’, as well as plug-in geofencing data targeted at manufacturers and developers. It has now unveiled a global airspace monitoring system that promises to help drone operators fly more safely and responsibly – Airspace Alerts.
The new software, the world’s first, enables drone operators to specify ‘alert regions’ that the firm’s cloud platform monitors in real-time for low-flying manned aircraft, proactively sending a push notification via email or SMS to the drone operator to ensure they have time to move out of the way safely. The service will soon also send out important weather information, as well as alerts whenever no-fly zones are activated or deactivated.
