In the grounds of the Englefield House and in front of an especially invited audience, which included airspace regulators, government representatives, aviation decision makers, and those working to enable the drone industry, Altitude Angel presented its inaugural ‘Automated Skies’ event.
To demonstrate its ARROW platform, the foundation technology on which Project Skyway will be built, the Automated Skies team conducted a programme of 140+ drone flights along an extended section of the first ARROW superhighway, south of Reading.
Flight partners including Skyfarer Ltd, HEROTECH8, SkyBound Rescuer, Animal Dynamics Ltd, Texo drone survey and inspection, Thames Valley Police, and the Altitude Angel flight team, undertook several commercial drone scenarios in unsegregated airspace – which included issuing tactical deconfliction following incursions into the airspace of private and military aircraft, as well as rogue drone flights.
The event brought together organisations across the industry to help to understand what needs to be done, and the steps needed to progress the integration of drones safely and securely into UK skies.
