Hangar & Safe Operation

How does Hangar ensure operations are carried out safely, legally and in compliance with worksite needs? We are happy to walk through all concerns with any of our clients, and work around internal logistics, scheduling and requirements to build data acquisition plans that work for your business needs. In the name of providing an easy solution for industry, Hangar leverages a combination of existing hardware technology, proprietary software capability, and partnership integrations to provide a safe, secure and robust framework for aerial data collection.


US Airspace Coordination

Hangar’s collaboration with Airmap, with whom we share venture capital funding and a vision for the future of the aerial data collection industry, enables all Hangar commercial flights to be secure and approved in national airspace, with a higher degree of technology integration than any other data provider in the space.


Airmap data enables Hangar mission planners to plan all flights around FAA airspace requirements, and file any necessary permits before flight from our mission control center in Austin, TX. Additionally, this technology is integrated on the ground for our pilots on the job, for an additional airspace check before they fly for client data collection.


Drone ID is a publicly-trusted SSL/TLS certificate issued by AirMap and DigiCert that facilitates instant verification of an unmanned aircraft’s identity via a digital certificate, enabling authentication and encryption for drones.


Hangar’s AirMap integration also ensures all Hangar drone operators are alerted when manned aircraft trajectories create a potential hazard for the drone’s area of operation. Live data about manned aircraft positions is constantly accessible to Hangar and our pilots, with instant notifications during flight for additional airspace safety.
