Multi- and Inter-USS Deconfliction at NASA-UTM TCL4 Trials

As the drone industry evolves to serve increasingly advanced use cases like autonomous delivery, disaster recovery, or infrastructure inspection, solutions for drone traffic management (known as UTM) must also evolve to account for the increased complexity resulting from many drone flights taking place within the same operation volume at the same time. Solving for this complexity is essential to AirMap’s mission of empowering the drone economy with cutting-edge airspace intelligence solutions.

This report details how AirMap, together with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) and the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), completed the final phase of a four-part, multi-year research and development project dedicated to researching, testing, and refining core technologies for UTM.
