uAvionix Corporation (uavionix.com), the leading Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) ADS-B avionics solution provider, announced today that it has chosen Robotic Skies (roboticskies.com) as an installation and field maintenance partner for its line of avionics products designed for commercial drone aircraft. As part of the agreement, Robotic Skies will provide sales, installations, and ongoing field support for uAvionix customers through its global network of aircraft service centers.
uAvionix develops the world’s smallest, lightest and most affordable ADS-B transceivers, transponders, and GPS receivers. Designed for unmanned aircraft, uAvionix has dramatically reduced the size and cost of critical safety components required to fly safely and legally in the National Airspace System (NAS). uAvionix recently announced FAA TSO C-199 approval of its FYXNAV GPS position source, which includes a receiver and antenna, and provides high integrity GPS inputs to drone autopilot navigation systems and ADS-B equipment.
“As our products make their way into more complex, high-performance drone platforms that integrate into the NAS, Robotic Skies will become an increasingly important part of our sales, installation, and maintenance process,” said [uAvionix source]. “Since all Robotic Skies service centers are FAA Part 145 repair stations, our product installation and maintenance requirements will never outgrow their qualifications or technical capabilities as UAS airworthiness standards evolve.”
Robotic Skies is a global network of repair stations that have the aviation expertise and factory training to provide inspections and maintenance that ensure the mission readiness of commercial unmanned aircraft systems, or drones. Drawing on only the best FAA and aviation authority approved maintenance organizations that currently maintain manned aircraft, Robotic Skies offers a comprehensive turnkey field service programs designed to keep UAS flying safely, efficiently, and affordably.
“Companies like uAvionix represent the future of the unmanned aerospace industry. Their products are specifically designed to support the safe integration of drone aircraft into the aviation ecosystem. Robotic Skies is excited to count them as a manufacturing customer, and look forward to servicing their customers now and as the unmanned market develops,” said Brad Hayden, President and CEO of Robotic Skies.
uAvionix products will be on display in the Robotic Skies booth, #623, at the Aircraft Electronics Association international convention, March 13-16. Robotic Skies will be accepting applications for Part 145 repair stations interested in joining its global network at the convention.
