Why You Need Universal UTM

Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already become a feature of our skies in both the civilian and military domains. Experts project considerable growth in both realms in the coming years. Thus, the lower airspace will need a system to monitor and govern traffic such as exists for the roads and upper airspace.

This is what Universal UTM provides.

Universal UTM is a means to coordinate UAV activity on a national level, a tool to protect restricted airspaces, and the only way to enable manned and unmanned aircraft to operate alongside each other in harmony.


How Does It Work?

Universal UTM is a software-based, autonomous system. It divides the airspace into sections governed by virtual control towers. This means that the system is infinitely scalable, easily capable of overseeing an entire country, and even more. It’s UAV-agnostic, compatible with all off-the-shelf UAVs, and new types can be easily integrated for full coverage. In addition, recent technological and regulatory developments mean that even UAVs that aren’t registered to High Lander will be detectable too.


What Exactly Does It Do?

The system monitors all active drones in its designated airspaces, in real time. It autonomously checks flight plans against each other and no-fly-zones, approving and denying flight plans in accordance. It’s responsive to real-time changes, so it will automatically flag conflicts as they happen.   

User Experience

The system was built to be easy to use; there’s no steep learning curve here. The display is intuitive, comprising a live map with all active UAVs clearly displayed on top. The user can select any drone to see its identity and flight plan. It also displays a live history of flights for a fuller overview of the situation minute-by-minute.

Universal UTM is the sister system of Mission Control, the world’s leading drone fleet management system. Mission Control is the muscle, Universal UTM is the brain.
