Our mission is the safe integration of drones into airspaces around the world. Founded in 2015, Aquilo was one of the first commercial drone operators in Alaska and remains at the cutting edge of drone innovation worldwide. We use our experience to equip companies with the tools, education, and knowledge needed for safe and effective drone operations.
We are a team member on the UAS Integration Pilot Program (IPP), a highly selective regulatory fast-track for experimental drone operations. The USDOT and FAA selected only ten IPP locations nationwide based on applicant experience and proposed operations. The applicant pool was highly competitive—not even Amazon's proposal was selected. Aquilo is currently working on conducting Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flights to monitor Alaska fish populations. Our artificial intelligence experts are developing algorithms that automate much of the repetitive work involved in counting fish, wildlife, trees, and assessing other natural resources.
Companies in Alaska and across the US want to use drones but need a turnkey product that manages initial training, relicensing, FAA notifications, local regulations, checklists, flight times, hardware, software, and data. This information needs to be consistent and up-to-date across the entire enterprise and needs to work in the field. Our product helps businesses and local governments safely operate drones and integrate drone services into existing workflows.
