Kenya Airways has become the first airline to join the Global Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) Association (GUTMA) as a full member. The airline supports increased collaboration to develop a harmonised global digital UTM ecosystem.
Kenya Airways follows the addition of D3 Technologies, AltBird Robotics and Skeyes last month. D3 Technologies has announced a series of goals for its digital platform designed to support safe, secure and efficient integration of drones in national airspace:
- Identify actions to be taken to safely, securely and efficiently integrate Unmanned AircraftSystems (UAS) into national airspace systems;
- draft and distribute an interoperability blueprint for traffic management of UAS;
- collaborate with regulators and other stakeholders worldwide to identify standards, as well as scalable and compliant technical solutions, to the development of UAS traffic management systems;
- instigate and facilitate partnerships between manned and unmanned users of the airspace; and
- engage with other associations and groups facing similar challenges.
