Airbus Aerial harnesses satellites, UAS, helicopters, data analytics, and AI to support hurricane recovery efforts

Using the most advanced aerospace technologies, Airbus Aerial can collect, analyze, and deliver actionable data from a range of 100 feet off the ground up into the troposphere using a number of assets, including: UAS, helicopters, satellites, data analytics, and artificial intelligence.
As the third strongest storm in the U.S. was striking the East Coast, Airbus Aerial technology was providing around-the-clock support analyzing the impact and aftermath of Hurricane Michael. Airbus Aerial uses a unique combination of satellites, manned aircraft and rotorcraft, and unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) together with data analytics technology and an artificial intelligence (AI), or machine learning, platform to help organizations supporting recovery efforts better understand and react to the storm as it rolled across the southeastern U.S. into the Gulf of Mexico.

Airbus Aerial, headquartered in Atlanta, had teams on the ground in affected areas to assess the situation as it evolved, collecting insights about impact to properties and the region.

Fusing Airbus' constellation of high-resolution satellites with fleets of unmanned aircraft, Airbus Aerial can collect, analyze, and distribute powerful, actionable data, focusing on what its customers need and then using the right tools for the job, officials describe.
 
“The power of Aerial is our ability to seamlessly integrate data from any aerospace asset, adapt to industry-specific problems, and provide customized data solutions,” a company representative adds. “Backed by Airbus, an international pioneer in the aerospace industry, we are a leader in designing, manufacturing, and delivering aerospace products, services, and solutions to customers on a global scale. We aim for a better-connected, safer, and more prosperous world.”
