Until now, there was no complete solution for the challenge of centrally and simultaneously controlling drone fleets in different locations around the world. HHLA Sky has developed just such a platform. It can clearly and easily map out the fleet planning, scheduling, flight and data preparation.
The HHLA Sky drone system:
Project of the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure, BMVI
Coordinator: Helmut Schmidt University / University of the Federal Armed Forces in Hamburg
In collaboration with our partners, we are developing a comprehensive legal-technical concept for the management of drone traffic. The goal of the project is establishing an official or officially-sanctioned agency that coordinates automated drone traffic. The organisation of the complete process leading to the registration, planning and execution of drone flights will be supported by software, and drone traffic will be integrated into air traffic and the regular transport business.
HHLA Sky wins the German Innovation Award in the start-up category. With the first Integrated Drone Control Center that can manage and remotely control 100 drones simultaneously. Via LTE or 5G anywhere in the world.
Drones inspect assets at the Port of Hamburg and operate maintenance flights along the Speicherstadt. Matthias Gronstedt, one of the two managing directors of HHLA Sky, explains how UAS are used at the terminal operator HHLA and what applications are considered for the industry.
At the IFOY TEST DAYS 2021 in Dortmund trade fair HHLA Sky’s Integrated Drone Control Centre successfully passed the audit of IFOY award candidates. The software is now certified as: Best in Intralogistics.
The jury tested and evaluated criteria such as the solution's innovation potential, cost-effectiveness, energy efficiency, sustainability, safety, and ergonomics.
HHLA’s newest technical system has six propellers and can move far beyond the port: The engineers and software specialists at HHLA Sky have developed a drone system that is globally unique and can be used in the industrial sector. It allows operators to simultaneously monitor more than 100 aircraft, even if they have flown hundreds of kilometres beyond their visual line of sight.
Sven Howar has been the operations manager and a drone pilot at HHLA Sky right from the start. Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG’s start-up intends to establish itself in the new market for drone services.
