Iris Automation Partners with Doosan Mobility Innovation for Safer, Fuel Cell-Powered Drones
Iris Automation today announced the company has partnered with Doosan Mobility Innovation (DMI) for the integration of its Casia detect and avoid (DAA) system with DMI's family of hydrogen powered systems and drones. The joint solution will enable DMI's clients to operate safer advanced missions like beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) and accelerate the Korean manufacturer's entrance into the US market.

Iris Automation's Casia allows an uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) to see and react to the aviation environment around the aircraft. Casia detects other aircraft using computer-vision algorithms to classify them, makes intelligent decisions about the threat they may pose to the drone and then triggers an alert to execute maneuvers to safely avoid collisions.

With its leading hydrogen-powered fuel cell technology, DMI commercial UAVs are BVLOS-capable and well suited for long endurance flight applications. Drone operations are both eco-friendly and sustainable when powered by hydrogen, as opposed to petroleum.

DMI will provide US customers with the option of Casia integrated with its drones or as a combined purchase with their stand -alone powered systems. The two companies will also collaborate on professional services to advance compliance with emerging US aircraft regulatory requirements.

        Doosan has developed industry leading hydrogen fuel cell drone technology that delivers the endurance and performance necessary to enable autonomous UAV flight, without carbon emissions. We are excited to bring this innovation to the United States market, and to partner with a safety innovator like Iris Automation.


- Soonsuk (Fran) Roh, manager of Americas and Oceania business development at Doosan Mobility Innovation

        This partnership opens a new pathway for enterprise operators to evolve their operations from traditional platforms to sustainable and safety-focused BVLOS UAS systems that deliver real business outcomes today, while protecting their environmental and accident safety reputation.

 
- Lori DeMatteis, vice president of sales & marketing at Iris Automation

About Doosan Mobility Innovation
Doosan Mobility Innovation creates the world's first commercialized hydrogen fuel cell system for drones, which have two hours of flight time - four times longer flight time than battery drones. With two hours of flight time, DMI's hydrogen drones are utilized in various industrial fields including utility inspection, delivery, emergency monitoring, and public safety. Based on this green technology, DMI has successfully launched our products in the USA, China and Korea in 2019 and DMI is ready to expand our business to the rest of the world.

About Iris Automation
Iris Automation is a safety avionics technology company pioneering on- and off-board perception systems and aviation policy services that enable customers to build scalable operations for crewed and uncrewed aircraft; unlocking the potential of countless industries. Iris' Casia system runs either onboard the aircraft or in a ground-based configuration. We work closely with civil aviation authorities globally as they implement regulatory frameworks ensuring BVLOS is conducted safely, partnering on multiple FAA ASSURE and BEYOND UAS Integration Programs and Transport Canada's BVLOS Technology Demonstration Program.

Optimization of Air Cargo Handling Processes thanks to AI and Telematics

INFORM Institut für Operations Research und Management GmbH | May 19, 2020

Keeping track of unit load devices (ULDs), containers, and dollies has been a major challenge for ground handlers over the years. The difficulty that involves gathering real-time information on the status of such assets has led to several inefficiencies when trying to control them. The result: Excessive costs due to inadequate manpower and ground support equipment (GSE) allocation. To address this problematic, INFORM GmbH teamed up with Blumenbecker Technik GmbH. In a joint effort, they developed the industry’s first solution that facilitates managing and maintaining dolly fleets. This smart tool helps to answer the most critical operational questions: Where exactly is the ground support equipment located? What are the current maintenance requirements? To what extent is the overall dolly fleet being used? How does it work? By combining AI and telematics, ground handlers can track and locate every ULD and dolly on the apron within seconds. This allows operators to plan and manage their GSE´s capacity utilization based on the respective task more optimally.

test Q&A WITH ED BREAULT

aprimo | March 31, 2020

MEDIA 7: What’s your superpower? ED BREAULT: I would say it’s applying the full spectrum of art and science that is required in marketing today. Not just left or right brained, but whole-brained strategy. Being human yet data-driven and really understanding numbers and (the right) metrics to make connections to business drivers. Add storytelling to that, so I can effectively communicate to my team, the CEO and CFO as well as my Board of Directors on those metrics, and connecting all that we are doing in marketing to the mission of the business. Then quickly shifting gears to the art and creative aspects of marketing that are required to engage an audience and tell great commercial stories that take complex concepts and craft them in a way that is interesting for people to pay attention to. I have to be the ultimate point of truth for the brand.

ATPCO introduces new Reassurance UPAs at no cost to airlines

TravelDailyNews International | April 08, 2020

ATPCO has embarked on a pro-bono initiative to help airlines, sales channels, and people who fly, and we thought you might be interested in knowing about it. While most airlines have cut back schedules significantly or are even grounded at the moment, it’s a fluid situation. There are still many flights operating, some scheduled flights are being brought back into operation already, and there is still flight shopping for the future. Those traveling now - and those who will fly again in the future - are rightfully concerned about their health and safety when they travel. ATPCO saw an urgent need to help convey the measures airlines are taking to protect passengers when they are considering flights to purchase.
