IDRONECT Is A Product Made By Aviatize BVBA.
Aviatize is a Belgian company (bvba / sprl) founded in June 2015 by Tom Verbruggen (Msc
Aviation Mechanics – Airline Transport Pilot) and Chris De Rouck (M.Eng Computer Software
The objective of Aviatize is to develop innovative digital applications for the aviation industry’s many processes, according to the newest developments in the field of digital and online applications (Saas: Software as a service)
Although the aviation industry is considered to be at the pinnacle of technology, with numerous actors and many detailed procedures, the management processes are still often being supported by numerous and rather basic tools (pen-paper –excel – word – access – …) and by expensive limited custom-made programs.
As a first product, Aviatize developed a fully integrated Drone Management Application named IDRONECT.
IDRONECT is an end-to-end management platform for the administration, operation, and compliance of drone flights, to help drone pilots, both professional and amateurs, to plan, perform and track drone flights in an easy and intuitive way.
We help to operate the drone easy, safe, and legal with a few mouse clicks, on any device and any operating system from A to Z: from finding a customer to planning a flight, to processing the data.
IDRONECT also connects pilots to the other actors in the drone ecosystem, such as
authorities, air traffic management, drone manufacturers, drone schools, test centra,
insurers, hardware providers, etc.
