Iris Automation Partners with Doosan Mobility Innovation for Safer, Fuel Cell-Powered Drones


    Alliance establishes Iris Automation as exclusive detect and avoid technology provider

    SEOUL, South Korea and RENO, Nev., Sept. 16, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Iris Automation today announced the company has partnered with Doosan Mobility Innovation (DMI) for the integration of its Casia detect and avoid (DAA) system with DMI's family of hydrogen powered systems and drones. The joint solution will enable DMI's clients to operate safer advanced missions like beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS), and accelerates the Korean manufacturer's entrance into the US market.

    Iris Automation's Casia allows an uncrewed aerial vehicle (UAV) to see and react to the aviation environment around the aircraft. Casia detects other aircraft, uses computer-vision algorithms to classify them, makes intelligent decisions about the threat they may pose to the drone, and then triggers an alert to execute maneuvers to safely avoid collisions.

    With its leading hydrogen-powered fuel cell technology, DMI commercial UAVs are BVLOS-capable and well suited for long endurance flight applications. Drone operations are both eco-friendly and sustainable when powered by hydrogen, as opposed to petroleum.

    DMI will provide US customers with the option of Casia integrated with its drones or as a combined purchase with their stand -alone powered systems. The two companies will also collaborate on professional services to advance compliance with emerging US aircraft regulatory requirements.

    Quote from Soonsuk (Fran) Roh, manager of Americas and Oceania business development at Doosan Mobility Innovation

    Quote from Lori DeMatteis, vice president of sales & marketing at Iris Automation

    "This partnership opens a new pathway for enterprise operators to evolve their operations from traditional platforms, to sustainable and safety-focused BVLOS UAS systems that deliver real business outcomes today, while protecting their environmental and accident safety reputation."
