NEW YORK/ANTWERP, July 28, 2020 – EVA, the global leader for high throughput drone and robot infrastructure and Unifly, the global leader in Unmanned Traffic Management technology, are thrilled to announce that they are joining forces. Together, the two partners provide an end-to-end solution for the drone services market by combining EVA’s drone infrastructure (portable Vertical Stations) and Unifly’s cutting-edge UTM technology.
Through this partnership, EVA and Unifly help streamline the safe integration of drones into the airspace and offer operators – private organizations and government agencies alike – an easy-to-deploy solution to support their operational needs.
The Vertical Stations serve as the connecting nodes between sky and ground, providing charging and storage means, UTM system, and flight operation planning for given critical drone missions.
The resulting all-in-one drone infrastructure benefits a wide variety of use cases: medical supply and parcel delivery, disaster relief, logistics, smart cities, on-demand infrastructure inspection, etc.
Olivier LE LANN, CEO at EVA, Inc.: “We are now entering the golden age of the drone industry. EVA has always positioned itself as enabling the drone industry to accelerate its missions, accomplishing incredible missions such as delivering healthcare, seeding trees, rescuing people, establishing connections between people and businesses. We followed Unifly impressive tracked global record in Europe, North-America and other continents, and found with Unifly team a great chemistry in supporting our global customers with the best technology.”
Laurent HUENAERTS, General Manager at Unifly Inc: “A partnership between EVA and Unifly was a no-brainer: our two companies share the same mission to enable large-scale routine drone service applications, we have extremely complementary technologies, and we are both active globally. We believe that this joint solution, combining Unifly’s UTM and drone operations management and EVA’s ground infrastructure, definitely helps to further unlock the economic, societal, and environmental benefits drones have to offer.”
Unifly bridges the gap between manned and unmanned aviation. Unifly’s primary mission is to enable the safe and efficient integration of drone traffic around the world. We create a digital environment that helps stimulate the drone market while safeguarding the safety of the airspace for all stakeholders involved so that drones can become part of our everyday lives. www.unifly.aero
EVA connects the world one vertical station at a time. We are to drones and robots what parkings, service stations and garages are to cars. Our stations can welcome up to 24 drones and offer quick charging and hosting capability. Our integrated command and control center decreases dramatically the critical latency for drones through its edge cloud capability. Last but not least, EVA also offers the first integrated Ground-To-Sky capability allowing inside and outside, ground and sky to be connected seamlessly through its mesh of stations, drones and robots. EVA has established operations in North America, Europe and Japan and allows its B2B customers to set drone turnkey solutions swiftly. www.eva.xyz
