DroneSense Adds Mobile Streaming and Asset Tracking to Platform
The two new feature sets are said to be designed to provide better situational awareness to improve public safety outcomes.
AUSTIN, Texas — DroneSense, a provider of mission-critical software that enables organizations to build, manage and scale unmanned aircraft programs, has introduced Mobile Streaming and Asset Tracking features to its integrated platform. The company’s users include public safety, government and critical infrastructure organizations.
“Mobile Streaming and Asset Tracking are absolute game-changers for first responders,” states Chris Eyhorn, CEO of DroneSense. “We designed these features with the needs of first responders in mind, particularly emphasizing the improved outcomes that often accompany an open and inclusive systems architecture. We believe that by equipping organizations with as much information and as many options as possible, they can run more successful missions, collaborate more effectively, and make better decisions about how to complete missions.”
The first of the new features, Mobile Streaming, allows any authorized user with an iOS or Android phone or tablet to livestream into the secure DroneSense Ops Hub, giving operations teams significant access to additional real-time data. This is said to dramatically increase the amount of information that users can readily access. Mobile Streaming also extends to any device that has a video output including planes, helicopters, robots and external cameras.
DroneSense says the new Mobile Streaming feature allows users to view all participating devices and drones together on a map, providing the ability to compare aerial views while seeing what is occurring on the ground.
“This new feature strongly resonates with our customers, giving anyone who is not a pilot the ability to participate in an operation by streaming with their devices,” Eyhorn says.
The second feature, Asset Tracking, is said to allow users to visualize anyone with a GPS device in real time and to identify themselves as officers, patrol cars, K-9 units, unmanned aircraft, robotic units and others. The company says that it learned through extensive customer input that increased situational awareness allows users to better allocate and use the resources at their disposal, resulting in better outcomes.
“Our customers have told us this is one of the first systems to integrate manned and unmanned assets on a single pane of glass to help make better real-time decisions,” Eyhorn says. “These products have been extensively tested in the field for the last several months. We are very happy to share them with our entire customer base.”
