What is UTM and what does AviancoUTM offer?

“UTM” stands for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAV/RPAS/Drone) UAS Traffic Management. A Standard UTM may offer the following core services:

  • Registration and Identification Services
  • Flight planning and Approval Services
  • Tracking and Surveillance Services
  • Airspace Management Services
  • Operations Support Services
  • Analytics
  • Why do we need a UTM?

    With increasing popularity, personal and commercial use of drones in India, how do we ensure that all stakeholders (manned and unmanned) involved in drone operations can share the sky safely? A UTM, or an eco-system of multiple players in drone operations space are required to ensure that the operations in can be safe.
