In light of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, HAZON Solutions has made its drone fleet management software free to anyone involved in hurricane disaster response or recovery efforts in the U.S. HAZON's Drone Management System (DMS) provides drone operators with an online tool to track flights, manage maintenance, and monitor weather and airspace.
“It is very important to HAZON that we do everything possible to help our fellow drone operators make as efficient and effective as possible,” says HAZON President Sean Cushing. “Having a proven management tool like HAZON DMS will allow the safe and rapid allocation of drone teams. We have used it for Harvey and are busy using it to be effective for Irma preparations.”
The HAZON DMS is a secure, patent pending, Web-based application that provides any drone operator or corporation with drone programs with a simplified way to manage drone fleets. Users can input flight logs, aircraft maintenance needs and daily activities. Supervisors can view all entered information from a desktop computer or mobile device, without having to update multiple spreadsheets.
"With what's happened in Texas and as Irma looks to pack a punch on the East Coast, we are looking to do more than just send our teams in to the disaster areas to help out," says HAZON Vice President Ed Hine. "We’re offering DMS to drone operators involved in the response or recovery for the next three months. Our hope is that DMS will help drone operators better coordinate and execute their flights, ideally the result will be better support for those who need it the most."
