AirMap Platform SDK Readily Accessible to Developers and OEMS through Dronecode
Developers and drone manufacturers everywhere can now easily access and consume mission-critical UTM services to power safe drone operations at scale.
Today we announced the open-source version of the AirMap Platform SDK that is compatible with the Dronecode project and can be built into the QGroundControl code base used by developers and OEMs across the industry.
With the AirMap Platform SDK pre-integrated into QGC, developers can readily access and consume UTM services, including advisories, pilot authentication, flight planning, compliance briefings, real-time traffic alerts and an alpha release of airspace maps, with very little development work required.
Connected drones can also share live flight positions to the AirMap platform for real-time feedback about the airspace environment for enhanced situational awareness.
“Having QGroundControl pre-integrated with AirMap’s Platform SDK allows us to enhance the safety and efficiency of our operations with core UTM capabilities,” said Dr. Jamey Jacob, Director of Unmanned Systems Research Institute at Oklahoma State University.
