CAL Analytics was selected by the Ohio Department of Transportation (ODOT) to provide statewide Uncrewed Aircraft System (UAS) operation services using its UAS Service Supplier (USS) platform. This agreement is the culmination of a multi-year build-up of CAL Analytics’ Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) service platform that started in 2019 with a $1.4M award from the Ohio Federal Research Network (OFRN) to develop an interoperable and resilient contingency management system for Ohio UAS Operations.
Through this work, Ohio continues its leadership in the innovation, research, development, and utilization of UAS technology. CAL Analytics’ USS will provide ODOT a wide array of services, including a centralized monitoring and management capability of statewide infrastructure, communications, navigation, and airspace surveillance equipment critical for UAS Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight operations. Beyond Visual Line-of-Sight operations are operations flown beyond the pilot’s line of sight. Additionally, CAL Analytics will provide ODOT with enhanced operational planning and situational awareness for its extensive statewide utilization of UAS for Visual Line-of-Sight operations.
Soaring to new heights, together.
