Enabling Beyond-Visual-Line-of-Sight Drone Operations
The Drone Operations Center (DOC) is an essential component of any urban airspace management system. The cloud-based, mission-critical Garuda Robotics Drone Operations Center is designed to support safe and effective unmanned aircraft flight operations for multiple applications in an urban environment, both within and beyond Visual-Line-of-Sight (VLOS/BVLOS).

The Drone Operations Center (DOC) is an essential component of any urban airspace management system.

The cloud-based, mission-critical Garuda Robotics Drone Operations Center is designed to support safe and effective unmanned aircraft flight operations for multiple applications in an urban environment, both within and beyond Visual-Line-of-Sight (VLOS/BVLOS).

Feature Highlights

Powered by Garuda Plex, the system comprises multiple features including drone fleet management, BVLOS command-and-control, live video streaming and telemetry and secure network connectivity, all necessary for enabling beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) drone operations in an urban environment.

Drone Fleet Management

Monitor autonomous BVLOS drone operations nationwide

BVLOS Command & Control

Command unmanned aircraft for their assigned tasks remotely

Live Video Streaming & Telemetry

Deliver real-time data for maximum efficiency and situational awareness

Industry Use Cases

BVLOS operations represent the next frontier and an area of opportunity for the unmanned aviation industry – is a consensus among civil aviation governing bodies including Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS), Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA). For instance, BVLOS operations could enable unmanned aircraft to fly a large area without requiring the UAS operator to keep a physical watch on the aircraft. This could benefit search and rescue efforts, building and structural inspections, land traffic monitoring and transportation of goods. Other applications include but not limited to:
  • Emergency Medical Supply Delivery
  • Long-range Parcel Delivery
  • Ship-to-shore/Shore-to-ship Delivery
  • Building Inspection & Modelling
  • Event Monitoring & Surveillance
  • Compound Security & Perimeter Patrol
  • Large-area Survey & Mapping
  • Building Inspection & Modelling
In order to allow remote pilots to operate and monitor BVLOS drones from a Drone Operations Center safely and reliably, the development of enabling systems for navigation, detect-and-avoid, fleet management and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) traffic management is critical and highly challenging. Deep expertise in specific technical, operational and regulatory domains are required to make the development of a working system possible.
