ACL Digital and Partnership Aims to Advance AI-Driven Drone Technology

In an effort to push drone technology further into the realm of artificial intelligence (AI), ACL Digital, part of the ALTEN group specializing in digital transformation and engineering services, has joined forces with, a developer of advanced drone technology solutions. This collaboration aims to enhance the capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), focusing on applications that go beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS).

The strategic partnership intends to merge ACL Digital’s product engineering and system integration with’s innovations in AI and machine learning for drones. The collaboration will focus on creating AI-driven solutions for UAVs, the Internet of Things (IoT), and edge computing, targeting the revolutionization of operations in BVLOS missions.

One of the key challenges in the drone industry is the development of autonomous navigation systems that can safely and efficiently operate without human oversight, particularly in environments where GPS signals may be unreliable or unavailable. The partnership plans to address this issue by leveraging AI to enhance drones’ autonomous navigation capabilities, allowing them to identify obstacles, adjust flight paths in real-time, and execute complex tasks with high precision. has already made strides in drone technology applications, including autonomous navigation through AI algorithms that enable drones to analyze their surroundings and identify obstacles for safer operations. The company has also worked on adaptability features, allowing drones to learn and improve from each mission, and real-time data processing capabilities for applications such as surveillance and search & rescue.

Rajesh Rasalkar, co-founder of, highlighted the significance of BVLOS capabilities for commercial drone operators, noting that the partnership with ACL Digital is a crucial step towards achieving their vision of optimizing drone performance, security, and safety through AI assistance.
