Omnipresent Robot Technologies has signed an agreement to establish a drone excellence centre in Uttar Pradesh with Gautam Buddha University and the Skill Council of India. According to a press release issued on Monday, the centre will feature sections for drone pilot and operations training, drone data processing and analysis and app development, drone design and production, and drone testing and maintenance.
Omnipresent was recently chosen as a PLI (Production-Linked Incentive) scheme recipient for drones and drone components by the government.
“We plan to hire the first 100 students who complete the programme for internal purposes. Every month, our goal is to generate over 100 skilled drone pilots and 100 indigenously made drones “Jyoti Vashishta Sinha, the omnipresent CTO, stated.

A New India Milestone for ANRA Technologies and Drone Manufacturers: Drone Tracking In order to address safety and security concerns of the Indian government, ANRA Technologies, in partnership with ideaForge and Asteria, carried out the first-ever flight test utilising new technology that allowed live tracking of drones via the internet. Along with ideaForge and Asteria Aerospace, ANRA Technologies, a pioneer in integrated airspace, mission management, and delivery systems for uncrewed aircraft, reached a new milestone for drone tracking in India’s national airspace. The demonstrations showed the adaptability of the system by showcasing a small strap-on hardware module and a software plugin. Accessed by participating drones wirelessly connected to ANRA’s SMARTWAYZ Tracker Platform, these features allowed authorised users to see and track concurrent drone operations in Bangalore and the National Capital Region. Each drone flown by ideaForge, Asteria, and ANRA was tracked in real-time, with its locations shown on the SMARTWAYZ Tracker app. Only authorised individuals could observe the tracking, and drone operators had the choice to switch it on or off.

Each drone flown by ideaForge, Asteria, and ANRA was tracked in real-time, with its locations shown on the SMARTWAYZ Tracker app. Only authorised individuals could access the tracking data, and drone pilots had the choice to turn it on or off. Amit Ganjoo, the founder and CEO of ANRA Technologies, said, “Today, we advanced the drone sector for India by showcasing with our partners a solution that answers critical operational challenges for the government of India. “Our SMARTWAYZ Tracker platform is network-based, allowing authorised users to monitor live flight tracking of drones from anywhere in India.” Small drones can be challenging to track using conventional techniques like radar, and not all drones are connected with a system that sends their information to a network where it is then shared. A new alternative is to use strap-on gear or a software plugin at the drone’s control station that periodically electronically shares the drone’s position and other relevant information. Today’s demonstration successfully demonstrated this capability in two distinct cities. Concerning ANRA Technologies For managers and operators of unmanned aircraft, ANRA Technologies provides global airspace management systems. For operations including Uncrewed Traffic Management (UTM)/U-space and Urban Air Mobility (UAM), ANRA provides sophisticated and modular traffic management software capabilities. ANRA provides MissionManager, an enterprise-class drone operations solution, for businesses in need, and DELIVERY, a delivery service, for businesses. Regarding ideaForge ideaForge is a UAV systems firm with a product-focused approach that creates drone solutions for a range of uses. Drones made by ideaForge are years ahead of those made by other equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in terms of performance, safety, reliability, and autonomy. IdeaForge strives to push the limits of UAV technology and promote its use in order to maximise our impact on improving productivity and security for our clients. IdeaForge was founded on a solid foundation of interdisciplinary engineering. Concerning Asteria Aerospace An unincorporated organisation called Asteria Aerospace is attempting to create strong rockets and create and construct spaceships that will one day travel to space. Our team strives to provide original solutions based on defying accepted design conventions in the aerospace sector. We don’t just work on the actual hardware for High Power rockets; we’ve also started to explore other areas of study, like design work on more complex systems that could be able to get into space, and in some cases, the early development of those same systems.

Opportunities for Australian SAR agencies to tap into mobile phone technology innovation were highlighted in a presentation by Dr. Kim Blacker, the founder of Stratelo, during the AAUS ROTORTECH 2022 Conference, held on June 22–23. Tuggerah, New South Wales, Australia, June 2022 According to Kim Blacker MD, founder of Stratelo, based north of Sydney, who will present on SAR technology innovation at AAUS ROTORTECH 2022 Conference, in Brisbane, on June 22, mobile phones hold the key to quick and precise location of people who are lost and offer a key opportunity to augment search and rescue (SAR) services in Australia. According to the Australian Institute for Disaster Resilience, Australia’s search and rescue system saves an average of 2,000 individuals each year who would have otherwise died on the oceans, in the highlands, or in the desert and returns them to their families. The SAR system is utilised every day of the year, according to the Australia National SAR Council, with five events on average occuring each day. SAR is a crucial service that brings together a number of authorities, including Commonwealth, Federal and State, across civilian, police, and defence resources because of Australia’s enormous area, frequently harsh environment, and mainly unpopulated interior. Kim Blacker will describe how a UAV mounted cellular search and rescue solution can use a mobile phone as a rescue beacon to quickly and affordably geolocate the person or people of interest and, if they are conscious and able, communicate with them. “Many people who are lost, injured, or in a disaster area are in possession of a working mobile phone, even if they are in an area with no mobile coverage,” Blacker says. Weighting as little as half a kilogramme, cellular-based search and rescue instruments like Smith Myers’ ARTEMIS solution have been fitted onto very cheap commercial UAVs up to bigger air-certified systems for manned fixed and rotary winged aircraft. The talk features use scenarios for border security, disaster assistance, and search & rescue. The topics discussed will include geolocation methods and how the range of geolocation can change depending on geography, the cellular environment, and the strength of the deployed cellular search and rescue solution from a few kilometres to tens of kilometres.
