UTM Unmanned Traffic Management, refers to the technological and regulatory efforts to create an air traffic management system (like that used with manned aircraft) for drones being flown in the lower airspace.
UTM Unmanned Traffic Management is set to play a crucial role in the widespread adoption of drones, especially in urban areas. The ability to manage drone traffic in the lower skies will both help operators conduct safe flights and curb any public fears of drone accidents and rogue drones.
As things stand, there are five key components of an UTM future: software, infrastructure to support the drone’s communications, a regulatory framework for operations within the UTM system and for the UTM system itself, a remote identification system, and stakeholder buy-in.
At this stage, several firms are emerging with competitive UTM software solutions – however, in terms of regulations governments are still at an early stages of development and pursuing pilot programs.
Our products and services within this field are tailored to helping you be an early entrant to the UTM Unmanned Traffic Management industry, be it by being up to date with the latest news or by introducing a new solution yourself.
