Parrot and DroneSense partner to better equip public safety UAS programs

DroneSense software platform adds innovative support features for ANAFI drones to deliver the capabilities needed by first responders

London, UK – May, 2020Parrot, the leading European drone group, has announced it is partnering with DroneSense— a software company that develops comprehensive drone management platforms to empower public safety organisations to build, manage, and scale their unmanned aircraft programs. Through this partnership, public safety UAS teams are able to use the full suite of DroneSense capabilities tailor-made for the needs of first responders with their ANAFI aircraft.

Parrot’s ANAFI and ANAFI Thermal drones offer an ultra-compact tool for professionals, helping them gain new vantage points using the drone’s aerial insights. In addition to its built-in 4K HDR camera, ANAFI Thermal also integrates a FLIR® thermal sensor— allowing users to easily capture thermal and visual readings for faster response times, along with higher precision and efficiency. This functionality, coupled with the scene management tools in the DroneSense Platform, will provide public safety operators with an unparalleled level of situational awareness that will ultimately help save more lives.

The DroneSense platform consists of three complementary components. DroneSense Pilot provides users in the field with an intuitive interface to fly any mission with any drone in their fleet. DroneSense OpsCenter is an incident command interface that provides complete situational awareness with live video streaming and telemetry data from drones in the air and collaboration with pilots flying them. Finally, DroneSense AirBase is the complete system of record that helps program managers keep track of critical data like flight logs, hardware, and personnel.

“Parrot consistently offers top-of-the-line solutions to our enterprise customers, and this partnership with DroneSense will allow us to deliver a seamless and integrated experience,” said Jerome Bouvard, Parrot Director of Strategic Partnership. “With entire fleets of drones to manage, decision-makers in the public safety sector are often faced with unique challenges when it comes to effective mission planning and hardware tracking. We expect these challenges to be eased greatly through this ongoing partnership.”

“It’s our mission at DroneSense to enable first responders to build and scale fully operational drone programs that harness the value of the latest drone technology safely and effectively,” said DroneSense CEO, Christopher Eyhorn. “Through this integration, we are excited to make it easier for our customers and all public safety agencies to utilize the highly capable ANAFI drones in their operations.”
