Netherlands launches first phase of prototype UTM platform with delivery of Altitude Angel’s GoDrone app

Delivery of Altitude Angel’s GoDrone mobile app for iOS and Android, and companion website, marks the first phase in the development of a prototype Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) platform by Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (LVNL). LVNL selected Altitude Angel in December 2019 help build the platform and gain knowledge and experience with a UTM system. GoDrone is designed to provide safety information information to recreational and commercial drone pilots. The application gives users comprehensive airspace safety information critical to the operation of drones. Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs), ground hazards, terrain and current weather conditions are all displayed on an interactive map and as detailed area reports.

Using Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM O/S as the foundation technology, the mobile and web apps include:

  • Multi Language support (English and Dutch)
  • Netherlands specific information via local datasets e.g. Waterways and “Natura 2000” parks
  • A custom set of map layers, indicating ground elevation

Van Dorst added: “With Altitude Angel we have built a qualitative app in short time. We are looking forward to our cooperation for the coming phases, to further develop the GoDrone web and mobile app to create value for the drone industry in the Netherlands.”
