Implementing an open access UTM for the UK
June 16, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm| Free
The adoption of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), can deliver substantial economic benefits through a range of new applications and business models.
Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) will be required to unlock these benefits and provide safe and routine coordination of UAS as we move to increasingly automated and Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations.
CPC, in collaboration with the DfT, Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) and industry stakeholders have developed a national UTM framework called Open-Access UTM. This programme has successfully progressed Open-Access UTM from concept through to live field trials, demonstrating how UTM could deliver air traffic management services in the future.
The purpose of this webinar will be to talk through the outcomes of the programme in two parts:
Part 1 – will provide a brief history and what has been achieved and discuss the way forward for UTM in the UK. This will be followed by a Q&A panel with key stakeholder from policy and regulation.
Part 2 – will present more technical look at the UTM framework, also followed by a Q&A panel with the consortium partners.
