Calgary-based Aerium Analytics’ expertise in Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology stems from its background in mapping, monitoring and inspecting energy and forestry projects. It’s now soaring to new heights in aerospace, pioneering new ways to keep airports safe, developing new Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) technologies for defense applications, and evolving software solutions to pull more value out of data from the sky.
One of its unique drone service offerings is the RoBird. This robotic peregrine falcon helps keep birds out of flight paths and out of plane engines at airports across North America.
“Aerium is already one of the foremost providers in the world, with more than 1,800 flights on airport property,” said Jordan Cicoria, Vice President, Operations, at Aerium Analytics.
The company is also a participant in the Calgary Living Lab initiative, which permits vetted innovators to make use of City of Calgary land, transportation corridors and public spaces to test their creations. Calgary is the first major city in North America to allow mass testing of commercial drones and its proximity to Canada’s largest beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) testing site at Foremost UAS Range helps make it an industry leader.
“We have an incredible tech ecosystem in this city, and it’s growing every day,” said Cicoria. The company credits its ease of ramping up operations as their business grows to Calgary’s talent supply of highly educated developers, geomatics specialists and machine learning specialists, among many other technical specialties.
