FRAIHMWORK to provide Safety Assurance for DroneUp’s Delivery Operations


Virginia Beach, VA and Syracuse, NY – May 31, 2023 – DroneUp, LLC, a leading autonomous drone delivery  provider, today announced a partnership with ResilienX, developer of an in-time aviation safety management system (IASMS) to provide safety assurance for uncrewed aviation. At the center of the deal is ResilienX’s FRAIHMWORK technology, which DroneUp will employ to ensure resilient detect and avoid (DAA) capabilities for safe deliveries while it expands its footprint for drone delivery in the US.

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

The software solution 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 Associated Elements like DAA for operational safety and efficiency.

“We’re excited to partner with ResilienX as we look to scale our US operations. Our safety culture is core to our business and resiliency across all elements of our operation, especially DAA, is critical,” said John Vernon, DroneUp’s Chief Technology Officer. “ResilienX demonstrates thought leadership and are market leaders for safety assurance solutions. DroneUp is thrilled to be partnering with ResilienX as we execute advanced UAS operations.”

“Safety assurance is vital to increasing complexity and automation of uncrewed operations,” said Ryan Pleskach, CEO of ResilienX. “DroneUp has a tremendous vision, and we’re thrilled to be a part of their plans to scale. Our goal is to help them achieve scalable, routine BVLOS operations, and FRAIHMWORK is an integral component of that vision.”
