ANRA’s technology to allow NYPA to advance its VISION2030 Strategy by Increasing Workflow Efficiency, Improving Fleet Management, and Ensuring Safety of Operations of Enterprise Air, Sea, and Land Robotic Systems
After participating in a competitive procurement process, ANRA Technologies, a leader in integrated airspace, mission management and delivery systems for uncrewed vehicles, announces the company’s selection for a contract to provide Mission Manager Software for the New York Power Authority (NYPA). The five-year agreement will allow ANRA to provide technology that will enable NYPA to utilize robotics for transmission line inspections and observation necessary for power restoration after weather events. The software will assist NYPA in meeting the clean energy strategic priorities of its VISION 2030 strategic plan and support the Authority in advancing New York’s Climate Leadership and Community Protection Act, a nation-leading clean energy agenda.
“As the nation’s largest state public power organization, the New York Power Authority promotes innovation that supports energy efficiency, the development of clean energy technologies and programs that will help reduce greenhouse emissions. We are pleased to be able to use systems like the Mission Management Software that will help us meet our VISION2030 strategic goals as we work to help create a more resilient New York powered by clean energy,” said Brian Saez, senior vice president for Power Supply at NYPA. “With smart technology like this Mission Management Software, NYPA staff can improve awareness and operational information sharing throughout our enterprise and communications with our stakeholders.”
ANRA’s mission manager software will allow NYPA to manage its robots safely, reducing risk for frontline NYPA employees that otherwise might be exposed to hazardous conditions when using more traditional methods of inspecting infrastructure and monitoring equipment. This technology will help NYPA improve shared situational awareness across its enterprise and assist in reducing response time and improving workflows for everyday operations and maintenance projects as well as weather events and other emergency response activities.
ANRA looks forward to their collaboration with NYPA to develop a solution that meets the requirements for a software platform that is integrated with existing NYPA tools and services but also allows for improving efficiencies.
“We are thrilled to collaborate with an enterprise like NYPA that uses air, sea, and land systems that will be integrated, managed, and operated with our single software platform,” said Amit Ganjoo, founder and CEO of ANRA Technologies. “Our background and experience working with the FAA, NASA and Fortune 50 enterprises will help ensure safety of the mission while enabling the technology that ultimately reduces risk for the NYPA teams that work hard and in sometimes potentially hazardous conditions.”
