The Global UTM Association (GUTMA) has announced the following organisations have recently joined the association:
ACR – Aviation Capacity Resources AB is a Terminal Air Navigation Service Provider currently operating 16 airports in Scandinavia.
Airservices Australia is the ANSP for Australia’s airspace – currently developing and implementing a Low Level Airspace management program, encompassing UAS/Drones and Urban Air Mobility.
Since 2013, Jennifer Richter, partner at Akin Gump, has been working with industry, NASA, the FAA, the FCC, ICAO and others on core questions that are facing GUTMA and its members–what are the suitable spectrum solutions for supporting essential UAS communications functions including UAS command/control links, remote identification and tracking of UAS, and connecting critical UAS information into a collaborative traffic management system. Jennifer is an active participant in NASA’s UTM working groups.
EANS is the ANSP of Estonia. Its main activity is provision of air navigation services in Tallinn Flight Information Region, covering the airspace over Estonian territory and some segments over the high seas that are delegated to Estonia by ICAO. EANS is also Coordinator of SESAR Finnish -Estonian VLD U-space project GOF U-space.
The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA)‘s vision for fully integrating drones into the National Airspace System (NAS) entails drones operating harmoniously, side-by-side with manned aircraft, occupying the same airspace and using many of the same air traffic management systems and procedures. This vision goes beyond the accommodation practices in use today, which largely rely on operational segregation to maintain systemic safety.
We realize this vision requires collaboration across industry, government, and academia. You can read about some of the FAA’s major partnerships and initiatives through links on the FAA public website (https://www.faa.gov/uas/programs_partnerships/) with the following topic areas:- B4UFLY Mobile Application

For the last four years, Kittyhawk has been building systems that enable drone adoption and drone flight across recreational and commercial use cases. Specifically related to UTM, we provide real-time UTM services for a company’s internal use case, while we’ve also been developing more public-facing UTM tools — such as we’ve demonstrated with Wing and AirMap with the InterUSS demonstrations.
Kittyhawk is an FAA approved USS for commercial and recreational LAANC, and we also work with the FAA to provide the airspace and application for B4UFLY.
OneSky is a new company from Analytical Graphics focused on helping customers plan and perform safe and efficient UAS operations. Leveraging 30+ years of industry experience and proven aerospace grade software, our technology provides advanced dynamic analysis, decision support and simulation capabilities to ensure compliant beyond visual line of sight operations. Our analysis includes high resolution terrain/elevation modeling, urban environment considerations, GPS/NAV quality forecasting, RF/Comm/C2 system modelling, weather, population density, route deconfliction and InterUSS support. Explore how our UAV traffic management (UTM) system, analytical (SDSP) web services and fleet operations center applications can benefit your operations through quantitative analysis of the operating environment and unmatched real time situational awareness.
Periculum Labs is developing artificial intelligence technologies for UAV risk and safety monitoring for UTM manufacturers, as well as UAS autonomy solutions for drone service providers.
Qualcomm invents breakthrough technologies that transform how the world connects, computes and communicates.
As the Air Navigation Services Provider (ANSP) in Rwanda, Rwanda Airports Company is focusing on:
– A UTM system that ensures safe operation of unmanned and manned aviation.
– Support of UAS Eco-system in Rwanda, as part of drone-related technical advisory committees.
– Involvement of all stakeholders in collaborative decision making e.g. working with the regulator and drone operators.
Uber Elevate has been an active member of UTM related systems supporting TCL4, UPP and IPP within the United States. Additionally its members have supported work in standards bodies related to UAS, UAM & UTM concepts including JARUS Working Group 6 (SORA) and multiple ASTM standards.
