Demonstration of AirBridge’s full UTM functionalities

Our UAS tech team was busy yesterday demonstrating AirBridge’s full UTM functionalities, in collaboration with ST Engineering and Skyports Drone Services, to a delegation of aviation regulators from the Asia-Pacific region and Europe.

The demonstration involves managing and deconflicting three sorties from three different operators, sharing mission-critical information across common airspace.

AirBridge is Asia’s first OEM- and operator-agnostic drone operations and traffic management platform built to provide equitable and safe access to the low-altitude airspace for complex BVLOS operations.

EU-Asia UAS/UAM Symposium

Our CEO, Ryan Lee, spoke and expressed his frank view on the challenges faced by the UTM industry at the inaugural EU-Asia UAS/UAM Symposium yesterday.

“While there has been much excitement in the Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) market in the last couple of years, the UAS Traffic Management (UTM) segment is still underinvested and going through a period of challenges. This can be detrimental to the AAM industry since UTM is critical for the industry to scale to a commercially viable level. Therefore, Regulators, Industry and Investors must work collaboratively to ensure that the UTM segment gets the right level of investment for research & development and commercialisation to support the AAM industry.”

We look forward to working with like-minded partners in governments, businesses, and academia to achieve Singapore’s vision of being the AAM hub in the region.

Singapore Maritime Week 2022 Drone Heron Technology

8 Apr 2022

Soft launch of AirBridge, a proprietary UAS platform,  during Singapore Maritime week

The team was back at the Maritime Drone Estate yesterday for the debut of our proprietary drone infrastructure platform – AirBridge. One year on from last year’s demonstration, we are thrilled to see concrete developments made in maritime ship-to-shore operations, as we work towards scaling up deliveries to vessels at anchorage.

AirBridge plays an important role in enabling large scale drone deployment to bring about true impact to the shipping and logistics industry. A low-altitude airspace infrastructure platform, AirBridge will allow for multiple drone flights to be managed simultaneously. The platform streamlines the operations process, to achieve a “one operator to many aircraft” mode of operations alongside other users of the airspace. Eventually, this will enable concurrent drone delivery services to multiple vessels at anchorage , while prioritising safety, security and reliability.

Thanks to the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) and our joint exhibitor Skyports for the opportunity to showcase AirBridge today!

Heron Technology announces partnership with Semperis to deliver Active Directory protection and recovery solutions

Heron Technology is pleased to announce our partnership with Semperis to deliver Active Directory protection and recovery solutions in Singapore and Southeast Asia.

Active Directory (AD) holds the “keys to the kingdom” and if not safeguarded properly, it will compromise an organisation’s entire security infrastructure. Cyberattacks targeting ADs to introduce or propagate malware are therefore on the upswing.

Semperis’ Directory Services Protector (DSP) and Active Directory Forest Recovery (ADFR) are the industry’s most comprehensive AD threat detection, response and recovery platforms, enabling end-users to have peace of mind in data protection and business continuity.
