Robotic Skies and CORRIDOR Aviation Service Software Announce Strategic Partnership to Create Maintenance Technology Solutions for Next Generation UAS/AAM
Robotic Skies and Continuum Applied Technology, Inc., providers of CORRIDOR Aviation Service Software, today announced that they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining CORRIDOR’s leading aviation maintenance platform with maintenance, repair and the Global Robotic Skies Network Overhaul (MRO) for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and “Next Generation” Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) Aircraft. The partnership will provide Robotic Skies with a custom, world-class software platform to manage its unique MRO operations, while extending CORRIDOR to provide enhanced support for next-generation aircraft maintenance activities that will help activate the emerging market for unmanned aerospace.
The Robotic Skies-CORRIDOR partnership brings together CORRIDOR’s 25 years of experience with its aircraft maintenance and regulatory requirements management platform and the UAS/AAM market expertise of Robotic Skies and its global MRO network. As next-generation aircraft operations become increasingly regulated, UAS/AAM manufacturers and operators realize that access to global airspace depends on implementing compliance practices aircraft established, including formalized maintenance programs. By leveraging the industry-leading CORRIDOR software portfolio, Robotic Skies can more effectively manage maintenance activities and track aircraft compliance conducted by its global network of service providers.
“Thousands of OEM Authorized Service Centers will be needed to service the emerging commercial drone and advanced air mobility markets, and most will not be located at the airports where aircraft are serviced today,” said Mike Greig. , Executive Vice President, Continuum Applied Technology, Inc. “Supported by the CORRIDOR mobile suite of aircraft maintenance solutions, the Robotic Skies business model will enable its current network of more than 240 independent repair stations to better ensure the safety and continued airworthiness of the UAS/AAM aircraft they support.”
“Data management is a critical aspect of next-generation aircraft operations, and manufacturers and operators insist on access to powerful digital platforms to ensure they remain competitive,” said Brad Hayden, CEO and Founder of Robotic Skies. “The Robotic Skies-CORRIDOR partnership creates a complete one-stop-shop solution that supports the unique requirements of UAS/AAM operations while maintaining regulatory compliance for performing and tracking aircraft maintenance.
In December 2021, Hearst Ventures announced its strategic investment in Robotic Skies to support the development and expansion of the next generation market. CAMP Systems, parent company of Continuum Applied Technology, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hearst. Robotic Skies will announce its CORRIDOR-powered global aircraft maintenance management platform for the UAS/AAM market later in 2022.
