Skysense, San Diego based and Qualcomm backed company, has built a solution that automates charging, pre-flight checks and data capture for your drone missions, making drone deployments economically scalable.
How does it work? The Skysense Charging Pad is compatible with all battery-powered drones nowadays on the market like Parrot AR.Drone, DJI Phantom. You can retrofit existing drones installing the Drone Kit: The Micro High-Power LiPo Charger to connect to the drone battery and spring-loaded contacts to install on the landing gear.
When the drone lands, the spring-loaded contacts establish a physical contact with the Charging Pad and the charging process starts.
The Skysense Network Manager empowers operators to easily access and manage all charging pads remotely. Online APIs and dashboard provide access to all information and services needed to operate, manage and benefit from the Skysense charging infrastructure:
