Kittyhawk has introduced flight profiles, a new feature for its UAS management platform, the company announced on 5 December.

The new feature is designed to allow fleet operations managers and pilots to automatically set and enforce a set of flight standards across their flight teams. Profiles can be set to prevent take-offs in ‘attitude mode’ set a standard ‘return to home’ height, and restrict power exhaustion behaviors like return to home or land in place.

The flight profiles can also set limits to how high and how far a UAS can fly, ensuring compliance with Federal Aviation Administration and internal company standards.

The new capability will also help provide greater transparency into the status of the aircraft’s control system before a flight. It will allow pilots to see any part of the flight control system that is not functioning correctly and be able to make decisions about how to proceed.
