Irish research organisation U-Flyte, in collaboration with drone operator Manna Technical Team, has released a fully functional pop-up unmanned traffic management (UTM) comprising airspace architecture and automated drone traffic management for Manna’s current Oranmore drone delivery test-site. According to U-Flyte, the pop-up UTM enables safe and responsible drone pathfinding to be computed in milliseconds and provides both strategic and tactical deconfliction as well as emergency event handling capabilities. This UTM sandbox allows key safety metrics including capacity and conflict rates to be computed as well as engaging with all stakeholders to ensure that any concerns regarding privacy and nuisance can be addressed.
U-Flyte is a strategic research partnership, coordinated by Maynooth University and funded by Science Foundation Ireland, together with key industry collaborators including Airbus, Irelandia Aviation and Intel.
