Our Capabilities

Concept Solutions provides UAS services that help our clients navigate the complex airspace, regulatory, technology, and financial impacts when evaluating the implementation of a UAS program.

UAS Program Development

Concept Solutions can provide Industry leaders assessments and the impact of implementing a UAS program and work through all phases required when standing-up a new UAS program. From defining a Concept of Operations, identifying requirements, and preparing a new business case to recommending vendor support and obtaining the necessary waivers and safety risk management analysis required before beginning operations, Concept Solutions professionals can help clients navigate the complex regulatory and technological landscape. With rapid advancements in UAS and supporting technologies, our team strikes a balance between innovation, cost, and safety risk mitigation to best serve our clients’ needs.

UAS Planning

A successful UAS program is closely tied to many aspects of the local community landscape, including existing air traffic control procedures, airspace limitations, local government agencies, and industry representatives. Concept Solutions is comprised of aviation professionals with decades of program management and systems engineering experience supporting the FAA – not to mention, deep subject matter expertise gained from decades of experience in the FAA’s air traffic management environment, air traffic control towers, and crewed and uncrewed aviators. Many team members have also spent much of the past decade analyzing and supporting the safe integration of UAS operations into the NAS.

Our Concept Solutions team can help UAS program leaders effectively integrate new UAS programs through cost/benefit analysis, stakeholder engagement, National, Regional, and Local government policy support, pilot programs, market analysis, and other requested services.

Operation Management

Concept Solutions can provide operational support for your UAS fleet. From the initial research and development phase to test and evaluation to data management and analytics to promote efficient operations, Concept Solutions can provide support in all aspects of UAS operations. With our profound understanding of the regulatory landscape, we also provide waiver, safety risk management, and flight planning services.

UAS Systems

Our in-house developed Geographic Information System (AvenGIS) is a flexible framework for presenting geospatial information that integrates multiple open-source products.  Concept Solutions can tailor AvenGIS to your use case to support client UAS field management operations with air traffic control-like, selectable layers of visual display information, such as:

  • UA position
  • Nearby cooperative and noncooperative aircraft flight information
  • Detect and avoid (DAA) aircraft information
  • Aeronautical information
  • Special Use Airspace (SUA)
  • Temporary Flight Restrictions (TFR)
  • And other data and information that can be inputted for your specific mission
