While they’re still primarily known as a manned aircraft giant, Airbus has been taking a significant role in unmanned innovation – and now they’re ready to offer a commercial product.
Airbus UTM has been participating in unmanned traffic management (UTM) for more than 2 years, originally as part of the company’s innovation division. They are developing a digital air traffic management solution, and have developed a low altitude authorization and notification capability (LAANC) application. To date, these solutions have been used within the company: but the LAANC capability is now available to the public via a new partnership with leading drone platform DroneDeploy.
“The integration is an important milestone in Airbus UTM’s charter to provide digital traffic services for the evolving aviation ecosystem,” says the company website. “Airbus UTM will integrate its flight briefing service and Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) authorization service with DroneDeploy, providing a more seamless experience for commercial drone pilots to plan, review, conduct their flights, and unlock controlled airspace near airports.”
