Unmanned traffic management (UTM) provider Altitude Angel has announced a partnership with low-altitude air traffic data provider Involi, marrying the pair’s technologies into one unified UTM system.
The duo have a proven track record of working successfully together – on the Gulf of Finland trials last year, as well as at the African Drone Forum and Lake Kivu Challenge 2020.
This new partnership will provide an ‘unrivalled picture of airspace’ for ANSPs, operators, pilots and drone-centric risk management applications.
It will integrate Involi’s low-altitude air traffic awareness data stream with Altitude Angel’s airspace and ground hazard data via the latter’s GuardianUTM platform.
Altitude Angel will also be able to propagate data from Involi to other applications and partner platforms, including, DroneSafetyMap.com and Guardian App.
Richard Parker, who founded Altitude Angel in 2014 and is its CEO, said: “Strategic partnerships, like the one we have formed with Involi, are a clear demonstration of how two businesses with a mutual vision for future drone flights can collaborate and in doing so, move an entire industry forward.
“The addition of Involi’s data to our already comprehensive platform will bring a new clarity to the airspace picture and in doing so, bring BVLOS flight a step closer.”
