AUTEL ROBOTICS and UASidekick today announce a partnership to provide direct access to LAANC services from within the Autel Robotics Enterprise Explorer application.

Autel Explorer is the mission planning and control application for Autel Robotics EVO series unmanned aircraft. Users of Autel Robotics EVO II Explorer will be able to use LAANC from within the Autel Explorer application, saving users time, cost, and providing precision for planned missions and manual flight services.

“Autel Robotics is very excited to be able to provide LAANC services from directly inside the Explorer application, as this not only enables pilots to fly more safely with FAA compliance, but also saves pilots a significant amount of time in not having to shuffle between multiple applications,” said Gary DeLuca, CEO of Autel Robotics, “additionally, the UASidekick window in the Autel Explorer will store LAANC authorizations, waivers, COA’s, pilot management, aircraft maintenance, and other benefits needed by public safety and commercial UA flight verticals.”

Autel Explorer Mission Planner will allow users to create a mission, using the geolocation data to submit precision location data to the LAANC system via the UASidekick portal, without having to open a secondary application, while storing the LAANC authorization data on the device used for mission planning. Manual flight will allow users to instantly access the FAA airspace authorization system for flights in areas served by the FAA Facility Maps.

Additionally, UASidekick offers pilot maintenance, flight logs, certificates, waivers, COA’s and other relevant documents necessary for Part 107 compliance, along with AC107-2 compliance for all maintenance records required by the FAA. The application also serves pre-filled forms required by LAANC such as aircraft serial number, registration number, pilot data, and geolocation data.

“Our agency already uses UASidekick and Autel aircraft, and this joint effort is exciting to our UA teams as it allows us to be mission-ready more rapidly, confidently, and with compliance,” says Sgt Randle Ballenger of Greer City Police Department. “We chose UASidekick for its features and speed, and chose Autel EVO II’s for their rapid deployment, lack of flight restriction/denial of flight services, and data security.”

“This partnership is not only a first in the UAS industry, enabling users to quickly and easily access LAANC airspace authorizations directly from within the controlling application, but also provides a one-stop-shop for pilots to manage flight logs, pilot records, maintenance, and more.  This coupled with interactive airspace information and true micro-weather provides a comprehensive picture of the flight environment that improves safety and maximizes productivity.  Nobody likes to flip-flop between multiple apps while they are flying – this partnership solves that problem,” says Nathan Ruff, CEO of UASidekick. “Autel Robotics is a trailblazer in the UAS industry, and we’re pleased to be part of a solution that is making it easier for pilots to just go fly.”

Autel Robotics offers Made in USA (with foreign and domestic components and labor) and UASidekick expands the Made in USA direction, as UASidekick is entirely owned, operated, programmed, and developed in the United States.

“Autel Robotics is diligently working to expand, enhance, and support the Autel Made In USA initiative,” said Gary DeLuca, “Partnering with UASidekick allows us to continue to provide greater depth to our Made in USA goals. This revolutionary announcement of LAANC and pilot management from within a control application marks a historic moment for the Unmanned Aircraft industry.”

Autel Robotics and UASidekick customers will see the first of multiple phases to the partnership roll out early first-quarter of 2021.
