Thales launches ECOsystem UTM

10th March 2017 - 10:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Thales has launched a new UAS traffic management (UTM) system called ECOsystem UTM, the company announced on 7 March.

The platform incorporates UAS management technology from Unifly, including its validation engine software application that conducts real-time validation of UAS flight plans. Combined with Thales' ECOsystem decision support platform, the solution aims to support the aviation industry as it evolves to safely track and integrate UAS into the manned aviation domain.

ECOsystem uses a suite of tools and predictive analytics that allows stakeholders to optimise their operations, as well as contribute to global optimisation through data sharing and collaborative applications. The system is configurable to the customers' operational requirements, from a global cloud-hosted service, to a local single-facility deployment.

ECOsystem UTM adds drone registration, pilot registration, flight planning, and regulatory/business rules with geospatial and meteorological information to enable adaptable workflows for managing UAS operations as well as customisable situational awareness using tools such as map overlays, terrain views and 3D projections. The UTM application and data enable automated flight authorisations as well as real-time alerting and intervention in emergency situations.

The application aims to support the rapidly growing demand for UAS operations in both visual line of sight and beyond visual line of sight while ensuring the public's safety, security and privacy.
