The growth of drone’s traffic is becoming a reality. The drone market is expanding its frontiers day by day, developing new applications in disparate sectors, from agriculture to mail or UAM (Urban Air Mobility) services.
As a result of the consistent proliferation of drones, it has become imperative to develop a solution that will enable their efficient integration into the airspace. What we need is a combination of technological and innovatory services that will permit safe access and control of drones, guaranteeing the maximum level of safety to all users. This solution has become reality: the UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) system.
Indra Air Drones incorporates:
Two solutions for managing unmanned traffic:
- UTM Hub: Virtual platform in charge of digitally centralizing and coordinating all data regarding drone operation in certain area. It enables communication and information exchange between the different actors of the system. It also allows real-time bidirectional interconnection with the ATM. The UTM Hub is an essential tool that will allow authorities to monitor and manage drones activity
- UTM Connect: multi-platform USP (Unmanned Service Provider) solution that enables the connection between a drone and the UTM system. It is the nexus to every service, the path to grant connectivity and freshly renewed information to all users: drones, pilots, authorities…
A solution to detect and neutralize drones:
- Crow, manages to detect and neutralize drones that invade unauthorized areas.
Through the joint integration of these three solutions, we create a global tool that permits the establishment of a safe lower altitude airspace in a local, regional and national context.
Furthermore, all of these solutions are compatible with the ATM system. Their integration increases every actor’s situational awareness, guaranteeing a complete solution that will meet the highest safety expectation, as the same time it contributes to enhancing the security levels.
With more than 100 years of experience in the ATM sector, Indra is the perfect partner to help develop and integrate the UTM, ATM and Crow (C-UAS).
We climb alongside our clients
In Indra we advise our clients in accordance to each country’s national drone regulation, whilst helping to develop such norms. After a profound analysis of our client’s specific necessities, we customize our response in order to build a progressive implementation program that will fulfil our clients’ requirements.
The UTM system may encompass the UTM Hub, the UTM Connect or both, with the possibility of being completed with the C-UAS Crow system for ensuring the protection of critical infrastructures such as airports.
Indra looks forwards to accompanying its clients through the entire process, integrating the UTM system with the ATM system. Our goal: guaranteeing a complete solution that guarantees the safety of our airspace.
