Supporting expansion into the U.S. across multiple airports for automated aviation with certified elevation data
DENVER, CO – Intermap Technologies (TSX: IMP; OTCQX: ITMSF) (“Intermap” or the “Company”), a global leader in 3D geospatial products and intelligence solutions, today announced one of its autonomous aircraft clients has renewed its NEXTView® subscription as their early-stage operations expand.
Intermap and Lufthansa Systems co-developed Lido SurfaceData NEXTView (NEXTView) and certified it with the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) for use in commercial avionics. NEXTView provides highly accurate elevation data to support autonomous aircraft landing and UAV operations as well as Terrain Avoidance and Warning Systems (TAWS) and Synthetic Vision Systems (SVS) in traditional aircraft. As the autonomous aircraft industry develops and grows, it will rely heavily on global data availability and accuracy to make unmanned flights safer and more efficient as goods and people are moved around the world.
NEXTView is uniquely positioned as the first of its kind and only certified elevation dataset on the market. It is the only global elevation dataset certified for aviation, with a Type-1 certification from the EASA, the European equivalent of the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) in the United States. NEXTView is critical in the rapidly growing unmanned aircraft market and has been integrated with multiple Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Unmanned Traffic Management Systems (UTMs) since its market entry in 2019.
“Our aviation surface data brings critical information to the unmanned aviation industry,” said Patrick A. Blott, Intermap Chairman and CEO. “Companies that are leading the path towards unmanned flights need foundation data to support operations to plan and execute flights safely and efficiently. Certified NEXTView data provides accurate terrain and obstacle data for optimal and safe flight routing.”
