Acubed to end LAANC services and focus on simulating future digital airspace

Acubed, the Silicon Valley-based innovation hub of Airbus, has announced that it will be closing its LAANC commercial services operations at the end of July in order to focus on simulating the future digital airspace ecosystem.

“We are incredibly grateful to our customers and the Federal Aviation Administration for allowing us this opportunity to work together, researching and testing what is possible for uncrewed traffic services,” said UTM project executive Scot Campbell. “The future of UTM is bright and we remain committed to being an active member of the UTM community, where we see UTM as a fundamental enabler for more advanced digital operations.”

Acubed will use lessons learned from the simulations to help facilitate increasingly complex operations.

Acubed has been providing flight briefing services and flight authorisation services through the Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability (LAANC) for over five years. It has served over 10,000 users through customers including DroneDeploy, AirData, etc. During this time, Acubed has managed over 160,000 flight plans in the United States, Australia, Canada and Japan; provided more than 24,000,000 airspace briefings; and granted more than 166,000 LAANC authorisations for controlled airspace.
