Global data privacy solutions provider Cicer One Technologies has entered a new strategic partnership with AVIDRONE Aerospace to develop a private and secure fleet of drones.

The partnership is also expected to end the risks surrounding Cloud-based data capture services.

It seeks to integrate AVIDRONE’s flight control and mission planning software with Cicer One’s point-to-point, globally accessible information management system.

“By partnering with AVIDRONE, we can provide a seamless product solution for their customers.”

The combined solution is expected to provide a secure, fully private, flight control and data capture solution for drones.

AVIDRONE Aerospace founder and CEO Scott Gray said: “We realise that government agencies, large enterprises, and industrial users of drones need to keep their data and flight missions 100% in their control from end to end.

“By partnering with Cicer One, we are able to create a data privacy solution for UAS vehicles that no Cloud-based control for drones can achieve.”

AVIDRONE Aerospace is primarily involved in designing and building fully automated unmanned flying drone systems for use in commercial applications worldwide.

The company develops drones weighing up to 900lb, with high-endurance, long-range flight capability. They can be used in automated package delivery and others missions.

Cicer One Technologies CEO Bob Embleton said: “Third-party Cloud services have become the standard for internet-enabled devices in the drone industry.

“This exposes sensitive mission data to third-parties for access and monitoring.

“By partnering with AVIDRONE, we can provide a seamless product solution for their customers. Drone operators will own and control their private data, keeping sensitive information out of the hands of third-party service providers.”

Cicer One further noted that third-party manufacturers or Cloud-based services should not manage or endanger critical information about how corporations, government agencies and industrial users manage their data collected by drones.
