Spright Leverages ResilienX Health Monitoring Software for Drone Operations

By deploying ResilienX’s FRAIHMWORK to monitor, assess, and mitigate adverse conditions associated with its Associated Elements, Spright is poised to demonstrate safety capabilities that enable expanded operations By Phoebe Grinter / 08 Sep 2022

ResilienX, Inc. has partnered with Spright, the drone division of Air Methods, to provide its enterprise FRAIHMWORK solution to assist Spright with compliance around the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)’s requirements for monitoring Associated Elements for complex drone operations. 

By deploying FRAIHMWORK to monitor, assess, and mitigate adverse or off-nominal conditions associated with its Associated Elements, Spright is poised to demonstrate industry-leading safety capabilities, enabling expanded operations.

“We’re thrilled to partner with ResilienX as we look to scale our operations worldwide. Our safety culture is core to our business and resiliency across all elements of our operation is critical,” said Justin Steinke, Sr. Vice President of Commercial Business for Spright. “Spright is happy to be partnering with ResilienX as we execute advanced UAS operations globally.”

FRAIHMWORK (Fault Recovery and Isolation, Health Monitoring frameWORK) is a highly configurable software platform that monitors the health and integrity of Associate Elements such as the infrastructure (communications, navigation, surveillance, weather sensors, and digital infrastructure) supporting advanced drone operations. 

FRAIHMWORK performs data quality assurance of third-party data streams and provides maintenance tooling and metric tracking. These capabilities are crucial elements of robust safety cases for Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) operations which are increasingly reliant on Associate Elements for operational safety and efficiency. 

“We believe safety assurance is a critical capability as Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) operations increase in complexity and automation,” said Ryan Pleskach, CEO of ResilienX. “We are extremely excited to be working with a company as forward leaning and experienced as Spright as they advance crucial UAS use cases around medical delivery and critical infrastructure inspections. Integrating FRAIHMWORK into Spright systems and operations will enable increasingly complex operations while maintaining and tracking a level of safety that the Civil Aviation Authorities (CAAs) are comfortable with.”
