The next level of operational control of drone programs
Skyward.io provides software, services, training, and connectivity for the next level of operational control of drone programs at every stage.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) continuously publishes Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) data with updates to where pilots can and cannot fly. Skyward uses MTS to update facility maps that show the area around an airport, broken down into small grids. Each grid lists a maximum altitude, which a pilot is allowed to fly up to, if they request authorization from the FAA prior to flight.
