ANRA Technologies and everis ADS have signed a memorandum of agreement establishing a long-term strategic partnership.
It has been forged to prove a comprehensive UTM solution for safe and efficient low altitude airspace operations.
The companies detailed how, given the number and type of UAS operations forecasted, it is apparent the existing Air Traffic Management (ATM) System cannot cost-effectively scale to deliver services for UAS.
They continued, describing how solutions that develop beyond the current ATM infrastructure and Air Traffic Control (ATC) resources are necessary to enable safe management of the expected rapid influx of UAS operations in this historically underutilized airspace.
The new strategic partnership aims to address this challenge by providing a comprehensive deployment of UTM that interfaces with existing infrastructure for specific geographic regions or entire nation-states.
Amit Ganjoo, CEO of ANRA, commented: “Within the envisioned UTM ecosystem, operations will be organized, coordinated, and managed by a federated set of actors in a distributed network of highly automated systems. Along with our everis ADS partner, we can deliver that capability today worldwide.”
Enrique López, CEO of everis ADS, added: “ANRA is an ideal partner for everis ADS in this emerging market. They help fill a technological need for our customers that are seeking help to address this new requirement, as this collaboration supports and strengthens our goal of offering differential solutions based on innovative technologies.”
