Robotic Skies signs drone firm [Albuquerque Journal, N.M. :: ]

(Albuquerque Journal (NM) Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) March 08--IsisCopter, a California drone manufacturer, soon will fly its unmanned vehicles into service stations operated by the newly formed Albuquerque company Robotic Skies.

IsisCopter, which makes miniature drone helicopters, or hovering rotocraft, signed with Robotic Skies this week to access that company's service network.

Launched in February, Robotic Skies is establishing a nationwide chain of maintenance and repair stations for commercial drones.

"IsisCopter is our premier customer," said Robotic Skies founder, president and CEO Brad Hayden. "We're now designing a maintenance program specifically for IsisCopter's aircraft, so that their vehicles can be serviced in any of our aviation centers around the country." The company is working with existing aviation centers to add UAV maintenance and repair to the suite of services offered. The network already includes Santa Fe Aero Service in New Mexico and Kings Avionics in Nevada and Utah.

Robotic Skies also has partnered with the Albuquerque-based software company Aero-Comply to provide an online, real-time tracking system for all UAVs in its network.

"The cloud-based software will allow Isis-Copter to customize a maintenance and trouble-shooting program for its rotocraft," Hayden said. "They can track ongoing maintenance of all airframes throughout the life of the craft, no matter where it's serviced." IsisCopter founder and owner Gus Calderon said customers that use his company's rotocraft will benefit directly from the Robotic Skies network.

"The Robotic Skies Service Center network guarantees that our customers will have access to local maintenance providers, assuring that their craft is professionally serviced and upgraded with minimum downtime," he said.

The company, based in Carlsbad, Calif., custom-makes its vehicles for clients who fly them for commercial and professional tasks, such as aerial filming and photography, and agricultural and wildfire monitoring.

Last year, the company made a special hovercraft for Lady Gaga with a custom-made dress attached to it. The singer flew in the outfit in November to promote her latest album.
