A consortium agreement has been signed to inaugurate UTM services in Poland. According to UTM development company DroneRadar:
“The consortium brings together JSW Innowacje the research and development group, dlapilota.pl Sp. z o.o. the developer of DroneRadar, Creotech Instruments S.A., a Polish space technology company, FlyTech UAV Sp. z o.o., an innovative UAV and software developer, Aerobits with their ADS-B transponder technology and WIZIPISI, specialising in satellite and spatial data processing. The consortium cooperates closely with the Polish Air Navigation Services Agency and is under supervision from the Polish Civil Aviation Authority.
“This contract aimed at the joint creation, activation and testing of a comprehensive solution, together with the necessary infrastructure, essential to implement the European U-Space concept, covering issues related to the automatic movement management of unmanned aircraft traffic. The development works will be carried out in accordance with the new regulations for BVLOS flights….Thanks to U-Space, an infrastructure will be created in Europe, allowing drones to use the airspace on a safe and massive scale.”
“An additional goal of the enterprise is to create a completely new class of services based on a combination of macro data, based primarily on satellite imagery, with data on a microscale, i.e. precise imageries made by unmanned flying systems. An example of newly created services are the processes of continuous monitoring of mining damage, long-changing phenomena, or simply the implementation of support functions for safe integration of drones with manned aircraft, to Ad Hoc services.”
