French companies Internest and Musthane have agreed to cooperate on a secure landing solution for drones and helicopters. This announcement follows the acquisition of a minority equity stake in by Musthane shareholders.
The shared objective of the two French companies is to provide helicopter pilots with an easy-to-use, robust and compact solution to ensure safe landings in difficult conditions. Out-of-area operations may require pilots to fly in a degraded visual environment (DVE) where the risks of accidents are high. For example, brownouts caused more than 50 accidents in the course of U.S. military operations between 2001 and 2007.
