UK-based advanced air mobility (AAM) specialist Skyports has announced it’s adopting Kongsberg Geospatial airspace situational awareness technology to enhance its Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations.

Tech apps expanding single-operator flight capacities

A major international builder and operator of AAM take-off and landing infrastructure, Skyports also runs a drone delivery division in which the Kongsberg Geospatial IRIS airspace visualization applications will be used.
