H3 Dynamics Launches Advanced Drone Charging Station


October 24, 2021

H3 Dynamics has announced the launch of the DBX-G7, a new vertiport system for autonomous drone operations. Smarter, faster, and multi-modal with 5G and 4G networking capabilities, DBX was designed to scale ongoing digitization efforts in safety compliance, maintenance and crisis management use cases. 

Developed during the COVID-19 pandemic, the DBX-G7 drone-in-a-box system is a direct response to new telepresence and remote work scenarios. TBX performs all the functions of an on-site drone pilot: navigation, docking, storing, battery charging, data retrieval, transmission, and cloud-based processing. Autonomous systems such as the DBX-G7 help to reduce the need for an on-site presence, and can help alleviate rising labor shortage pressures, the company said.

“With accelerating digitization, the need for structural scans is also growing while pilot availability is limited,” said Samuel Chauffaille, head of H3 Dynamics’ robotics systems division. “We are looking to close the gap with our DBX autonomous drone stations.”

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

Through a 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, 5 kg drone operations, “a living laboratory for cities considering 4-5 ton air taxis designed to carry passengers,” the company said.

“What makes DBX really unique is its open-architecture philosophy,” said Taras Wankewycz, the founder and CEO of H3 Dynamics. “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.” This enables several use cases and client requirements across geographies, such as solar farms, precision agriculture, infrastructure maintenance, utilities, buildings, and perimeter security.
