Dutch startup AirHub raised €1 million for their Drone Operations Center, a platform for managing drone fleets in security, critical infrastructure, and emergency response operations. Investment funds LUMO Labs and Lumaux are behind this financing.

The AirHub Drone Operations Center boosts operational capabilities for critical infrastructure and emergency response operations, ensuring adherence to the strictest safety, security, and regulatory standards, with tailored applications for mobile operating systems such as iOS, Android, and DJI Smart Controller, along with an intuitive online dashboard.

“In an increasingly complex and fragile world, drones have become an essential tool for keeping our society operational’, says Stephan van Vuren, co-CEO of AirHub. “With the investment from LUMO and Lumaux, AirHub is poised to take the next step in automating drone operations on a large scale, ensuring safety, security, and efficiency.”

Drones for emergency response

“Rapid urbanization, changing demographics, and the sequence of technological breakthroughs call for a profound redesign of the governance, operations, and underlying infrastructure of, e.g., our cities. Emerging technologies, including robotics and autonomous vehicles, hold the key. Still, their actual use in society is often held back as they face many challenges in meeting safety, security, and regulatory standards. AirHub helps overcome these obstacles and allows better use of drones in critical infrastructure and emergency response operations,” says Andy Lürling, Founding Partner of LUMO Labs.

“As AirHub continues to lead and innovate within the drone market, this strategic investment represents a significant step in our evolution,” says Thomas Brinkman, co-CEO of AirHub.  With the backing of LUMO and Lumaux, we are now more equipped than ever to respond to the increasing international demand and cement our position as industry leaders”.
