01 Work Management

Airware reduces the technical and operational challenges of integrating drones into existing business processes. The Airware Cloud provides application programming interfaces (APIs) to integrate with most enterprise work management systems, so users can start an aerial inspection job from within their existing systems. Geofence boundaries for the job can be automatically generated based on an address or GPS coordinates. Users can then specify data products that need to be collected and an optimal flight plan can be automatically computed.

02 Approvals

Airware helps companies ensure compliance with civil aviation regulations such as FAA no-fly zones, as well as insurance requirements, and internal company policies. If all safety, regulatory and internal criteria are met, approval can be granted and the job can then be dispatched directly to an approved employee or third-party operator. The Airware Cloud includes role-based security that allows administrators to easily manage who can create and dispatch jobs, and which operators can be assigned various types of jobs.

03 Operators

Operators download their assigned jobs using Airware’s operator software. To help ensure compliance with regulations and company policies, only users with valid permissions can revise flight plans, and only operators with valid credentials can access and execute them.

04 Autonomous Data Collection

Airware’s flight control software enables autonomous aerial data collection, eliminating the risk of in-flight human error and ensuring uniformity of data for accurate decision making. Flight automation also ensures job repeatability, allowing companies to use data for time-series analysis and change detection. The aircraft can only be activated within an approved and valid geofence as defined by the job’s specific requirements. The aircraft flies the prescribed flight plan and automatically collects data. Once the flight is complete, the operator uploads the data to the Airware Cloud or processes the data in the field.

05 Data Processing

Data can be automatically processed to create a variety of information products including orthomosaics, 3D models, and digital surface models. In addition, companies with unique data processing needs can customize data products, leveraging their own proprietary or third party tools. Permissions can be set to define who can see and share raw data and information products.

06 Analysis and Reporting

Information products can be used to conduct analyses like property damage assessment, infrastructure condition assessment, asset inventory, vegetation encroachment, taking precise planimetric and 3D measurements, and detecting changes in environments or facilities over time. Data or information products can be easily shared and integrated into reports, external analysis software, or databases. By working with uniform aerial data, businesses can make quicker decisions with greater confidence.
