Why we need an unmanned aircraft traffic management system for drones
An overview of why an unmanned aircraft traffic management system (UTM) is needed to integrate drone operations at airports.
While the actions of several rogue drone operators have caused massive disruption in recent years, airports regard unmanned aerial systems (UAS) as an opportunity, not a threat. From existing applications like runway monitoring and wildlife management, to potential uses such as delivery of spares, their utility is vast.
Here is a look at why airports must find ways to safely integrate drones into their operations, using an unmanned aircraft traffic management system – or UTM.200212-UTM_Article-OSL
