senseFly wants to ensure the safety of its mapping drones with a new partnership. The company announced it is partnering with airspace-management platform provider AirMap on airspace intelligence.

As part of the partnership, AirMap drone services will be integrated into senseFly’s eMotion flight and data-management software. This will provide drone operators with critical information and tools at their fingertips.

"senseFly is pushing the boundaries of drone innovation, demonstrating the tremendous potential of intelligent drones to help us do business and benefit our everyday lives," said AirMap CEO Ben Marcus. "We're excited to partner with senseFly to realize safe, efficient commercial drone operations."

AirMap’s services provide data and real-time information on airspace rules, advisories, critical infrastructure of locations, and alerts of nearby manned air traffic. senseFly provides an autonomous drone solution that can automatically capture pictures, and can land.

In addition, senseFly will take advantage of AirMap’s tools for Unmanned Traffic management, allowing drones to submit digital flight notices.

"senseFly solutions are designed from the ground up to maximize the operator's efficiency and minimize risk, which is why our drones weigh only an average of two pounds and include a plethora of failsafes," said senseFly CEO Jean-Christophe Zufferey. "By partnering with AirMap and adding industry-leading airspace intelligence to the mix, we are taking another big leap forward and ensuring that our customers' commercial drone operations are safer and more effective than ever."
