UPP Phase 2 partners should be able to support the following capabilities:

  • UAS operations in high density airspace;
  • Remote ID services;
  • USS transmission of flight information to air traffic control due to an off-nominal UTM event;
  • Public safety operations; and,
  • UAS Volume Reservations (UVR) service.
