3D vertical structures, obstacles, and digital airspace access to improve drone flight safety

Skyward advanced airspace intelligence maps

PORTLAND, Ore., – Today, Skyward, A Verizon company, introduced advanced airspace intelligence for drone pilots. Skyward’s drone airspace map provides a clear design, airspace data, and LAANC access, now combined with essential ground intelligence including 3D views of key structures, transmission lines, and more than a million vertical obstacles. Drone pilots in the field need to know how the surrounding area, including infrastructure, could affect flight, and Skyward offers this critical safety data to all users.

“Showing airspace is important, but it’s only part of the picture. The more intelligence that is available to understand how an area will affect the flight, the less risk a pilot has in the field,” said Mariah Scott, president of Skyward. “Skyward Airspace Intelligence is the only solution that provides easy-to-understand data for things like transmission lines, runways, over a million vertical obstacles, and a 3D view of key structures. It’s the next best thing to physically being in the field.”

In addition to comprehensive airspace information, the following data is now available for situational awareness:

  • Vertical structure obstacles (over one million structures identified from the FAA and FCC databases)
  • Major power transmission lines
  • Airports
  • Runways
  • Heliports
  • U.S. and Canadian National Parks
  • Stadiums
  • Hospitals
  • Schools
  • Pedestrian walking paths

Skyward Airspace Intelligence is part of the complete workflow that enables pilots to mitigate weather, environment, and business-specific risks.
