SAN FRANCISCO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Kittyhawk, the market leader in drone airspace systems & UTM technologies has been renamed to Aloft Technologies, Inc. Aloft represents the core company mission of powering and enabling safe and compliant drone flights through a powerful combination of enterprise UTM applications, security and compliance solutions and AI.
Today, Aloft is the largest UTM network of airspace users and stakeholders, and powers more than 50% of all LAANC airspace authorizations. While the company was founded in 2015, 2018 marked a significant new expansion by building our now patented Dynamic Airspace platform, with patented XID system for remote identification technologies. These early UTM capabilities are enabling the full spectrum of drone users to take flight today, while setting the stage for the second century of aviation that spans drone delivery, air taxis, and beyond.
Aloft’s enterprise platform Air Control which launched in Q4 2020 is now the primary customer platform driving higher frequencies of flights and higher rates of compliance along with added security and compliance features. In the last 60 days, Aloft enterprise customers flew 20K flights in industries like oil & gas, insurance, utilities and public safety. In addition, Aloft continues to power the new B4UFLY app which recently surpassed 10M airspace safety searches since the re-launch in July 2019.
“We’re excited to continue on our mission of enabling flight at scale. While we’ll always be connected to the past of aviation, we’re more excited about creating its future. That’s the vision of Aloft,” said Aloft Founder and CEO Jon Hegranes.
