H3 Dynamics Launches World’s Most Advanced Drone Charging Station, Targets Automation of the Global Drone Services Industry
October 26, 2021 News


H3 Dynamics announced recently the launch of DBX-G7, a brand new vertiport system for autonomous drone operations. Smarter, faster and multi-modal with 5G and 4G, DBX was designed to scale ongoing digitisation efforts in safety compliance, maintenance and crisis management. Applications range from smart cities across Asia to various types of industrial sites worldwide.

Developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, DBX-G7 is a direct response to the new tele-presence and remote work paradigm. DBX performs all the functions of an on-site drone pilot: navigation, docking, stowing, battery charging, data retrieval, transmission and cloud-based processing. Autonomous systems such as DBX help reduce the need for on-site presence, and can help alleviate rising labour shortage pressures.

“With accelerating digitisation, the need for structural scans is also growing while pilot availability is limited. We are looking to close the gap with our DBX autonomous drone stations”, said Samuel Chauffaille, Head of the Robotics Systems Division at H3 Dynamics.

H3 Dynamics has been deploying its Artificial Intelligence-enabled digital inspection solutions to address the many thousands of high-rise buildings that require regular inspections in Singapore, most of which use using piloted drone operations. The company has expanded its solution through strategic partnerships, including on SAP connectivity to send repair work orders directly from H3 Dynamics’ digital platform (see video). Enterprise software giant SAP and H3 Dynamics are now working together on an increasing number of industrial use cases.

Through its global partnership with air traffic control leader THALES, H3 Dynamics is working on real-time airspace integration through a multi-pronged approach around the world. DBX is the start of autonomous urban air mobility—one that builds immediate commercial experience with lower risk, five-kilogram drones operations, a living laboratory for cities considering four- to five-ton air taxis designed to carry passengers

“What makes DBX really unique is its open-architecture philosophy. Unlike other closed environments that restrict users to a single drone type, DBX can host professional drones from different manufacturers, and support multiple communication protocols and operating standards”, said says Taras Wankewycz, Founder of and CEO at H3 Dynamics.

This enables a broad universe of existing use cases and client requirements across geographies, from solar farms to precision agriculture, critical infrastructure maintenance, utilities, buildings, perimeter security and many more.

DBX will accelerate the global drone economy and existing solution developers anywhere in the world. Just like with smartphones help deploy the mobile app economy, H3 Dynamics’ DBX will deploy the global drone analytics economy“, added Wankewycz.
