About the client

In this business case, our customer was a company providing their end-clients, both privately owned and state-run ones, with an extensive range of integrated technologies based on the open standards created by The Spatial Web Foundation. The latter is non-profit, engineering open protocols and specs for next-gen web-based spatial solutions.

About the project

With the envisioned drone flight management software solution at their disposal, the customer intended to resolve a major issue associated with the next-gen smart logistics industry. Namely, the resulting software was expected to tackle the problem of missing common formats to coordinate drone activities. In addition to that, the solution was required to be totally compliant with the applicable EU regulations.

It was the customer's key objective to apply the solution to various fields where drones could be used – e.g. last-mile delivery, emergency response, security monitoring, infrastructure inspection, etc.

Business Context

Andersen's team, in close collaboration with the customer's in-house IT staff, was tasked with crafting a web app for users to:

  • Monitor their drones on the map;
  • Create and manage autonomous drone missions;
  • Make use of live video streaming capabilities.


The main goal for us was more than just a drone software development initiative – the priority was to build a solution consisting of reusable components so that the customer could swiftly develop other portal sections based on them.

App functionality

The web portal our team has contributed to makes it possible to outline, oversee, and control autonomous drone operations. The key functionalities of the drone software platform include:

  • Map view;
  • Space and domain management features;
  • Drone mission controls;
  • Flight history records.


Andersen assigned a team of nine IT specialists to build the portal together with the customer's engineers. The portal can be described as a drone web app for users to view their drones on the map, create and manage autonomous drone missions, and utilize the live video streaming potential.

The main advantage of the web-based drone management platform is the possibility to conduct fully autonomous drone missions, with algorithms responsible for setting the most efficient paths. As a result, drones can fly without any human intervention.

Project results

The drone portal was created in full, on time, and within the budget. Via it, users are able to:

  • Track drone flights on the map;
  • Create autonomous drone missions in full compliance with the EU drone-related laws;
  • View drone video streaming.
