DronePort Network Announces Collaboration with Vigilant Aerospace

Droneport Net­work, a sys­tem inte­gra­tion and infra­struc­ture devel­op­er for Advanced Air Mobil­i­ty (AAM), announced this week a col­lab­o­ra­tion with Vig­i­lant Aero­space, a builder of detect-and-avoid and air­space man­age­ment soft­ware for drones, reports a press release. Vigilant’s FlightHo­ri­zon solu­tion pro­vides advanced sit­u­a­tion­al aware­ness required for safe, scal­able autonomous flight.

The part­ners aim to pro­vide Air­space Man­age­ment (ASM), Detect-and-Avoid (DAA), and Unmanned Traf­fic Man­age­ment (UTM) for future drone port projects through­out the U.S.

Droneport Net­work “works with region­al cen­tres to lever­age exist­ing infra­struc­ture, such as air­fields and hang­ers, to build ded­i­cat­ed drone port facil­i­ties for a wide range of uses, from advanced autonomous flight test­ing and train­ing cen­tres to new air ser­vices across both the pri­vate and pub­lic sec­tor,” states the release. “DronePort pro­vides a full range of ser­vices required to safe­ly inte­grate drones and relat­ed ser­vices into the econ­o­my and nation­al air­space — oper­a­tional, reg­u­la­to­ry and tech­nol­o­gy — reflect­ing the broad range of con­sid­er­a­tions around safe, large-scale autonomous flight. This includes guid­ance for meet­ing strict FAA require­ments and select­ing appro­pri­ate tech­nol­o­gy part­ners.”

Mean­while Vigilant’s FlightHo­ri­zon solu­tion “pro­vides air­space man­agers with a 2D or 3D view of all air­craft in the select­ed air­space using a com­bi­na­tion of sen­sors and data sources to cre­ate an air­space safe­ty pic­ture for pilots, air­space man­agers and com­mand cen­ters, required to meet FAA reg­u­la­to­ry require­ments for advanced Unmanned Aer­i­al Sys­tem (UAS) flights,” con­tin­ues the release.

Craig Mahaney, CEO of DronePort Net­work, remarked, “We’re at a piv­otal time for build­ing the crit­i­cal infra­struc­ture need­ed to sup­port the enor­mous growth in autonomous flight and FlightHo­ri­zon pro­vides an impor­tant solu­tion for ensur­ing safe skies. We’re col­lec­tive­ly pio­neer­ing game-chang­ing avi­a­tion envi­ron­ments with far-reach­ing impact.”

Kraet­tli Epper­son, CEO of Vig­i­lant Aero­space, added, “There is immense oppor­tu­ni­ty for pub­lic-pri­vate part­ner­ships through­out the US to build infra­struc­ture to accom­mo­date the next gen­er­a­tion of avi­a­tion. We’re thrilled to launch this strate­gic part­ner­ship and are excit­ed to be a part of the future devel­op­ment of drone ports in the US.”


Since 2018, DronePort Net­work has been devel­op­ing busi­ness strate­gies and finan­cial mod­el­ling tools for the grow­ing demand of new scal­able economies. The com­pa­ny works with cities, munic­i­pal­i­ties, trib­al nations and organ­i­sa­tions to sup­port UAS com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion and cre­ate busi­ness devel­op­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties in their region. 

Vig­i­lant Aero­space sys­tems enable safe and scal­able autonomous flight, Beyond Visu­al Line of Sight. Clients include NASA, the FAA, the U.S. Depart­ment of Defence and a vari­ety of drone devel­op­ment pro­grams.
