Kevin Gallagher is the president and CEO of Simulyze, Inc. With more than 30 years of experience in systems engineering, operational support and situational awareness, Kevin is expert in how operational intelligence can be leveraged in commercial UAS operations as a key tool for safely integrating UAS into the NAS and helping pilots make smarter, better informed decisions.
In April, Simulyze’s Mission Insight application was successfully deployed in support of NASA’s Technical Capability Level 1 UAS testing, the first nationwide test of air traffic management for drones. Kevin and his Simulyze team directly supported operations at two of six UAS test sites. Mission Insight was the only enterprise-level solution used that integrated all aspects of multiple flight operations into a single interface.
In June, Kevin and his Simulyze team successfully deployed Mission Insight in support of the first U.S. ship-to-shore drone delivery. Taking place on the New Jersey coastline, the event featured independent drone delivery service Flirtey and the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine demonstrating the potential use of UAVs to deliver medical supplies during a natural disaster or humanitarian crisis. The UAV flights were flown round-trip from a ship located about ½-mile offshore to the Cape May Ferry Terminal in North Cape May, N.J.
