While the drone industry is built on cutting-edge technology, the methods used for its operations are often outdated. Consortiq is giving the sector the innovative safety-led update it needs to react to the changing demands of the market with its new, IoT inspired flight planning portal, CQNet.

Using real-time data and analytics, it replaces inefficient and inaccurate spreadsheets, logbooks and other physical tools to transform safety management and reduce risk within drone operations. The foremost drone consultant launched its problem-solving software at the AUVSI XPONENTIAL trade show in Dallas, Texas.

David Walters, Software Development manager at Consortiq, ran a series of demonstrations at the premier drone event. With a focus towards the media industry and the emergency services, the drone technology expert ran two sessions daily, highlighting CQNet’s applications for each targeted sector respectively.

Bryan McKernan, is newly appointed as US director of Operations at Consortiq, with his extensive knowledge on small, unmanned aerial system (sUAS) policy gained through Marine Corps Installations during his 20 years as a Marine Corps Aviator.

Will Coldwell, Research and Development director at Consortiq, said: “We can’t wait to unveil our management software and we hope by quantifying risk and safety we can help unlock the future benefits of drone technology.

"As a team, we’ve all worked extensively within the drone sector as well as the manned aviation world and through this experience, we are aware of the shortcomings of many existing mission management, maintenance and planning techniques. In order to plan safe and diligent drone missions, an IoT update is imperative.”

Amongst its diverse set of features, developed using Consortiq’s wide-ranging knowledge of drone operations, CQNet includes functionality to enable tasks such as crew assignment, flight checks, weather checks, asset management and flight data logging and reporting.
