HHLA Sky, Airobotics partner to provide drone services

Airobotics Ltd. (Airobotics) and HHLA Sky GmbH (HHLA Sky), a subsidiary of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), have formed a strategic cooperation to provide drone services to secure and assist terminal operations in Germany.

This cooperation will combine Airobotics’ autonomous drone technology with HHLA Sky’s Integrated Control Centre (ICC), UTM platforms, and presence in the German market, delivering a new level of automation and accuracy to crucial drone operations.

The partnership intends to revolutionise and improve the monitoring, repair, and protection of vital infrastructure and activities in Germany by combining Airobotics’ drone technology with HHLA Sky’s drone fleet platform and operational services.

The firms will work together to integrate Airobotics’ Optimus System, the world’s first FAA-certified drone-in-a-box system built for autonomous 24/7 data collecting and analytics in complex environments, including seaport operations and other vital facilities.

Eric Brock, CEO of Ondas Holdings, said: “We are thrilled to partner with HHLA Sky as we enter the European market with our automated drone platforms. HHLA Sky has best-in-class airspace management and control capabilities which allow customers the ability to scale drone fleet programmes.

“The opportunity to combine the HHLA Sky’s ICC with our Optimus System creates a hugely compelling service for our customers, which we believe supports faster and wider market adoption. Further, HHLA’s strong presence and experience in transport, logistics, and other critical infrastructure markets positions Ondas well to penetrate the important German market.”

HHLA Sky’s Managing Director, Matthias Gronstedt, stated: “Ondas has built a market-leading commercial drone portfolio headlined by its best-in-class Optimus drone-in-a-box.

“The Optimus System fits a major market need in Germany for aerial security and intelligence and we are excited to introduce the Optimus System into our solutions portfolio and integrate autonomous drone capabilities into our ICC and UTM platforms.”

HHLA Sky’s ICC platform and services reportedly allow for the central and simultaneous management of drone fleets in several locations, as well as the clear and easy mapping of fleet planning, scheduling, flight operations, and data collecting.

The ICC was designed to facilitate scalable drone fleet operations in critical infrastructure areas while maintaining the greatest levels of dependability and safety, and it is presently deployed in a variety of crucial locations throughout Germany and abroad.

In February, the Koerschulte Group of Lüdenscheid created Germany’s first completely automated drone delivery service.
