European country implements unmanned ATM to manage drone flights


The Czech Republic has deployed Airmap’s unmanned ATM to manage drone authorisations.

It will be used in the controlled airspace around Prague’s Václav Havel Airport, and also allows operators to access the AirMap for Drones mobile application which has been localised in the Czech language.

The new development forms part of a wider strategic push by the Czech Republic to deploy drones across its airspace.

The project, known as ‘SmartSky’, has been built in response to the European Commission’s estimations that drones could gain up to 10% of the aviation market in the EU within 10 years.

SmartSky has been implemented to build conditions for safe, long-term and sustainable development in the Czech drones field as the market grows.

As part of the move, AirMap and local drone service provider UpVision, are working together to establish an aviation navigation service geared towards advanced operations within an urban environment.
