Transtrex releases UAS restriction system

29th July 2015 - 13:30 GMT | by The Shephard News Team


Transtrex has released a beta version of its dynamic geospatial restriction system for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) at the NASA UAS Traffic Management Convention on 28 July.

Initial access will be limited to select UAS operators, manufacturers and aviation authorities in Switzerland, the UK, France and the US.

The scalable system enables safe and complaint operation of UAS at altitudes of up to 500 feet. It provides dynamic 3D map data using the company's 3DTMaps solution. The data includes operational restrictions like temporal and permanent no-fly zones and man-made objects.

The system evaluates flight plans and integrates with flight planning software, with the initial implementation based on MissionPlanner open source software.

Continuously updated information is provided by secure, cloud-based APIs available to ground and in-flight operators, enabling real-time UAS navigation. Transtrex Templates can be used by local and aviation authorities to manage and control lower airspace restrictions in real time.

Robert Cahn, founder, Transtrex, said: 'Transtrex helps manufacturers build safe UAS, it helps consumers and professional operators be compliant with restrictions and it enables authorities to make the airspace safe and productive. The Transtrex service is an important step towards the future of performance based navigation in the lower airspace.'
