Altitude Angel Powers BVLOS Flights In India With Sagar Defence

The BVLOS Trials Are Scheduled To Take Place From August Through To October 2020

Altitude Angel is partnering with Mumbai based Sagar Defence Engineering Ltd in BVLOS trials supported by Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA).

Together, Altitude Angel and Sagar Defence Engineering Ltd have been selected by India's DGCA to carry out BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) drone operations. The results of the trials will be used to help define India's regulatory framework for UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) ready for routine UAV deployment.

Altitude Angel's GuardianUTM platform will enable BVLOS drone flights around a multitude of real-life scenarios including medical and cargo delivery, surveillance operations, survey & mapping, and search & rescue operations.

The Union Government has recently begun the process of granting regulatory permissions to the operation of drones for commercial purposes.

On participating in the BVLOS trials Richard Ellis, Altitude Angel, Chief Business Officer, said: "The potential for UAV use in India is immense so we're excited to be partnering with Sagar Defence on these BVLOS trials. The ability to fly safely and securely BVLOS will unlock the potential of drones not just in India, but across the world. With Sagar, we're very much looking forward to showcasing our proven technology to demonstrate the amazing use-cases of drones."

The BVLOS trials are scheduled to take place from August through to October 2020.

These BVLOS trials will further build on trials Altitude Angel has been involved in this year, having been the lead and 'umbrella' UTM for the Lake Kivu Challenge, part of the African Drone Forum, which took place on the shores of Lake Kivu, Rwanda in January.
