Together the pair aims to “help streamline the safe integration of drones into the airspace” according to a joint statement.
They will provide an end-to-end solution for the drone services market by combining EVA’s portable ‘Vertical Stations’ and Unifly’s cutting-edge unmanned traffic management (UTM) technology.
They pledge to offer operators – both private organizations and government agencies alike – an easy-to-deploy solution to support their operational needs.
The combination of the pair’s technology will cater to a number of different drone users, including those using providing solutions like medical supply and parcel delivery, disaster relief, logistics, smart cities, on-demand infrastructure inspection, and more.
Olivier Le Lann, CEO at EVA, commented: “We are now entering the golden age of the drone industry. EVA has always positioned itself as enabling the drone industry to accelerate its missions, accomplishing incredible missions such as delivering healthcare, seeding trees, rescuing people, establishing connections between people and businesses.
“We followed Unifly’s impressive tracked global record in Europe, North-America, and other continents, and found with the Unifly team great chemistry in supporting our global customers with the best technology.”
Laurent Huenaerts, general manager at Unifly, added: “A partnership between EVA and Unifly was a no-brainer: our two companies share the same mission to enable large-scale routine drone service applications; we have extremely complementary technologies, and we are both active globally.
“We believe that this joint solution, combining Unifly’s UTM and drone operations management and EVA’s ground infrastructure, definitely helps to further unlock the economic, societal, and environmental benefits drones have to offer.”
