Thales ScaleFlyt Geocaging secures long-range and Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) drone operations with real-time flight display in an easy-to-use mobile application. This solution enable small to medium Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) operators to reduce ground and air traffic risks, while limiting Flight Termination System (FTS) use. It is complementary to geofencing or geo-awareness applications.
This Geocaging capability is part of the ScaleFlyt solutions family for drone operators that delivers a set of products and services that natively meet current and future requirements related to the challenges of drone operators: compliance with new EASA regulations, safety modules, data links, fleet management, and integration with traffic management systems.
When operating in prohibited areas or going beyond their authorized zone, drones may cause harm to surrounding aircraft, people or property. To mitigate these risks, an independent geo limitation for drones (Geocaging) decouples the system from any other device on the Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV). This function operates in both horizontal plane and vertical axis to define a 3D operational flight area. It introduces complementary positioning sources for applications that require integrity and availability beyond what can be provided by regular GPS or geofencing solutions.
To protect people or sensitive infrastructure on the ground, and to avoid collision with aircraft, Thales has developed solutions which lower ground risk and air risk class. The solutions comply with the highest levels of aeronautical standards and will facilitate the granting of authorizations by National Aviation Authorities (NAA).
