The new Measure and Parrot integration: Ground Control with ANAFI drone platforms enables a simplified end-to-end solution, which the companies say will help enterprise drone fleets scale rapidly.
Measure has seen some big changes: the company was recently acquired by AgEagle™ Aerial Systems Inc. (NYSE American: UAVS) (“AgEagle” or the “Company”), and Measure’s Brandon Declet Torres has been named CEO of AgEagle. The Parrot ANAFI platform, including the U.S.-manufactured and Blue sUAS solution ANAFI USA, has also developed quickly over the last several years: Parrot has developed partnerships and integrations with many leading names in the industry.
Now, European drone company Parrot® announces that Measure and Parrot have completed integration of the Measure Ground Control system with the ANAFI platforms.
Through a secure mobile flight management application combined with a cloud-based management portal, Measure’s award-winning Ground Control software ensures safe manual and automated missions, capturing real-time data-driven insights that businesses need to reap the transformative benefits of their ANAFI drone or drone fleet. The software has been seamlessly paired with ANAFI’s rapid deployment and ease of operation to provide mission personnel with Ground Control’s standard flight tools, as well as the ability to tailor and expand their use through selection of additional program management and data processing abilities.
Jesse Stepler, Senior Vice President, Strategy and Product at Measure, says, “As a hardware-agnostic solution, Ground Control was engineered to be compatible with best-in-class drone platforms, now including Parrot ANAFI. We are delighted to be teaming with Parrot to empower enterprise customers with a fully integrated Software-as-a-Solution (SaaS) platform that enables them to easily fly, track and manage in real-time their ANAFI drones used to address key operational objectives efficiently and safely.”
Features of Ground Control now enabled on the ANAFI platform include manual flight control and data collection, program management and compliance, data processing and analysis, integration with existing customer workflow systems and much more.
Parrot’s Director of Strategic Partnerships, Jerome Bouvard, noted, “Parrot remains committed to continuous innovation of our ANAFI platform through the addition of high performance, value-enhancing partners. The integration with Measure Ground Control advances Parrot’s quest to provide the most robust, safe and reliable drone solutions to professional operators seeking to deploy drones at scale.”
Measure Ground Control is now available for download to iOS systems for use with ANAFI, ANAFI USA and ANAFI Thermal platform drones. The software will be available for Android systems later this year.
