S-PLANE is proud of our X-KIT enabling the pioneering flights of Indra’s TARGUS OPS in non-segregated airspace in Spain. The X-KIT comprises the necessary automation, simulation, communication and ground control equipment, offered as a single kit, to rapidly convert aircraft into OPS and UAS.
A series of validation flights were conducted every day for 2 weeks. All milestones were successfully achieved with a perfect safety record. Flights were approved and monitored by EASA and the Aviation Safety and Security Agency of Spain. No other newly-developed UAS or OPS has been granted permission to carry out such flights before. This a landmark achievement for Spanish aviation and a leap forward for the development and commercial adoption of OPS.
