INVOLI and MatrixSpace unveil one-stop solution for cost-effective, complete air traffic awareness – sUAS News – The Business of Drones

INVOLI, a leading provider of cooperative air traffic surveillance solutions, is thrilled to announce its partnership with MatrixSpace, an expert in non-cooperative air traffic detection. This partnership marks a significant milestone in aviation safety and surveillance technology.

By combining INVOLI’s cooperative air traffic detection capabilities with MatrixSpace’s expertise in non-cooperative air traffic detection, customers can now access unparalleled traffic awareness through a single platform or API. This integration provides a level of simplicity and cost-effectiveness previously unattainable in the industry.

INVOLI specializes in detecting cooperative air traffic for aircraft surveillance data, while MatrixSpace excels in detecting non-cooperative air traffic using its miniaturized primary radar technology. The integration of these two cutting-edge hardware products allows for complete air traffic surveillance in a single deployment.MatrixSpace Radar offers robust situational awareness of both airborne and ground-based objects, regardless of lighting and weather conditions. This facilitates highly accurate drone detection and Counter Unmanned Aircraft System (CUAS) capabilities, Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flight for uncrewed, autonomous and tethered aircraft, and overall general aviation safety. MatrixSpace Radar is a very low SWaP-C (size, weight, power and cost), requires no additional infrastructure and is deployable in minutes without specialist training.

“This collaboration between INVOLI and MatrixSpace represents a significant advancement in air traffic surveillance technology,” said Manu Lubrano, CEO of INVOLI. “By merging our respective strengths, we are empowering our customers with comprehensive and seamless air traffic awareness, ultimately enhancing safety and efficiency in various operational contexts.”

Echoing Manu’s sentiments, Lori DeMatteis, CRO of MatrixSpace, added, “Our partnership with INVOLI enables us to offer a holistic solution that meets the evolving needs of the aviation industry. Together, we are revolutionizing air traffic surveillance by providing a unified platform for detecting both cooperative and non-cooperative air traffic.”

This integrated solution is poised to transform various sectors, including beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone operations and the surveillance of sensitive sites such as prisons and energy infrastructure. The ability to detect both cooperative and non-cooperative air traffic in one deployment opens up new possibilities for enhanced safety and security across diverse applications.


INVOLI is a multi-award-winning Swiss company with the mission to safely and efficiently open the sky to all flying objects. INVOLI presents a paradigm shift in providing the currently missing aviation surveillance data to challenging low altitude aerial operations, allowing the development of new businesses not possible otherwise.

INVOLI’s innovative system provides essential aviation surveillance data to allow manned and unmanned operations (including autonomous and beyond-visual-line-of-sight), ensuring their safety within an increasingly busy sky. With hundreds of proprietary air traffic receivers deployed worldwide, the company’s mixed hardware-software solution combines live data streams with advanced data analytics to unlock the full potential of digital and unmanned aviation across various sectors. These span from traditional aviation and airports to new forward looking markets including logistics, emergency and medical delivery, infrastructure inspection, security and tomorrow’s urban air mobility.

INVOLI is an ISO9001 company founded in 2017 and headquartered in Lausanne (VD), Switzerland. INVOLI’s Multilateration is certified in Germany by DFS (Deutsche Flugsicherung) for the control of aviation obstacle lights, while all INVOLI hardware is Swiss made and marked FCC/CE. INVOLI is actively involved in regulatory and standardization initiatives around surveillance services, notably through the involvement of its CEO, Manu Lubrano, who led ASTM Standard F3623-23 “New Specification for Surveillance UTM Supplemental Data Service Provider (SDSP) Performance”.
