Robotic Skies and CORRIDOR Aviation Service Software Announce Strategic Partnership to Create Maintenance Technology Solutions for Next Gen UAS/AAM
Robotic Skies and Continuum Applied Technology, Inc., providers of CORRIDOR Aviation Service Software, announce they have entered into a global strategic partnership, combining CORRIDOR’s aviation-maintenance platform with Robotic Skies’ global maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) network for next-generation unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) and advanced air mobility (AAM) aircraft. The partnership will provide Robotic Skies with a customized, world-class software platform to manage its unique MRO operations while extending CORRIDOR to provide enhanced support of next-generation aircraft-maintenance activities that will help enable the emerging unmanned aerospace market.
The Robotic Skies-CORRIDOR partnership brings together CORRIDOR’s 25-year experience with its aviation-maintenance and regulatory-requirements management platform and Robotic Skies’ UAS/AAM market expertise and global MRO network. As next-generation aircraft operations become increasingly regulated, UAS/AAM manufacturers and operators are realizing that access into the global airspace is contingent upon implementing established aviation compliance practices, including formalized maintenance programs. By leveraging the leading-edge CORRIDOR software portfolio, Robotic Skies can more efficiently 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 serve the emerging commercial drone and advanced air mobility markets, and most will not be located at airports where aircraft are maintained today,” says Mike Greig, executive vice president, Continuum Applied Technology, Inc. “Supported by the CORRIDOR mobile suite of aviation maintenance solutions, the Robotic Skies business model will enable their current network of over 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-gen aircraft operations, and manufacturers and operators insist on access to powerful digital platforms to ensure they remain competitive,” says Brad Hayden, CEO and founder of Robotic Skies. “The Robotic Skies-CORRIDOR partnership creates a one-stop comprehensive solution that supports the unique UAS/AAM operations requirements while maintaining regulatory compliance for aircraft maintenance execution and maintenance tracking."
In December 2021, Hearst Ventures announced its strategic investment in Robotic Skies to support next-generation market development and expansion. CAMP Systems, parent company of Continuum Applied Technology, Inc., is a wholly owned subsidiary of Hearst. Robotic Skies will announce its global aircraft-maintenance management platform powered by CORRIDOR for the UAS/AAM market later in 2022.
