Fleet Management Solutions

Helicus collaborates and coordinates industry leading software developers and airspace partners to create an integrated & automated drone fleet management solution.  A key component is the Helicus Command-and-Control Center (C2C).   This cloud based solution provides an integrated management tool for drone fleet operators as it interfaces to the other value chain actors. The second key ingredient is the Drone Cargo Port, which ensures scalable, automatic and safe ground operations.  

When an urgent order is placed, the Command-and-Control Center (C2C) automatically creates flight plans leveraging artificial intelligence, navigating inside a digital twin of the real world.  The C2C then interfaces these flight plans to the applicable Air Traffic Authorities (U-Space and Supplemental Service Providers) for flight authorisation.  In parallel, the same flight plans are uploaded into the drone platform, triggering pre-flight checklists remotely.  Once approved, the C2C will signal the specific & ready drone for automated take-off.  During flight, the C2C will allow monitoring in order to safely control multiple drone missions simultaneously.  Asset status management and possible incident reporting complete the workflow.

Helicus maintains the C2C software to perform own demanding medical missions in line with the latest U-Space regulations trough various aviation R&D projects undertaken together with EU and national Aviation institutions.  Constant evaluation and improvement ensure fulfilment of critical mission needs.  Interfaces are written for drone partner platforms, traffic authorities (U-Space Service providers) and vertiport management systems.  The C2C platform is made available to operators of larger automated fleets who require these functionalities in a robust way.

To obtain a mission ready and economical drone execution platform, ground automation is required.  Since 2018, Helicus automates drone handling with its drone agnostic ground integration solution, called the Drone Cargo Port (DCP) . This advanced integrated electro-mechanical machine supports remote movements, charges and protects drones, as well as automates payload handling.  Managed via the Command-and-Control Center, it ensures a readiness level to operate urgent missions ensuring safe and reliable drone operations.
