UK UTM company Altitude Angel and Pierce Aerospace, the US based remote identification system supplier, have agreed to form an alliance to bring automated drone flights a step closer. The partnership will explore the opportunities surrounding the integration of Altitude Angel’s UTM technology and Pierce Aerospace’s Flight Portal ID secure authentication system.
Philip Binks, Altitude Angel, Head of ATM, said the collaboration will look to help realise and implement safe, automated drone and unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flight. “In addition, the collaboration will give Altitude Angel a further foothold in the North American market and to help Pierce Aerospace gain a foothold in Europe.”
Aaron Pierce, Pierce Aerospace, CEO added: “Pierce Aerospace is thrilled to be working with Altitude Angel. Integrating our remote ID functionality with Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM platform can make BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) flights an everyday occurrence.”
