The evolution of air traffic control

Vega UTM design
A universal uncrewed traffic management system for fully integrated U-spaces worldwide.
The future of aviation

There are up to twenty thousand planes in the sky at any given moment and air traffic control works at full capacity to keep them safe.
But these numbers are growing fast and our air traffic management systems need to evolve.

Vega UTM is that evolution.

What is Vega UTM? 

Vega UTM is a fully autonomous software solution providing real-time airspace awareness encompassing crewed and uncrewed aerial activity in any defined area. It coordinates disparate drone fleets and traditional air traffic at any scale, providing a real-time view of everything airborne. It has the power to approve and deny flight plans and provide tactical deconfliction in unexpected circumstances.


Vega UTM is the infrastructure the world needs to create a consolidated sky.   

How does it work? 

Vega UTM creates UAS-focused control tower regions that use existing telecommunications infrastructure, direct broadcast, external hardware integrations and data sharing to gather information about airspace traffic.


The user experiences an intuitive dashboard accessed via desktop or mobile. It displays rich, real-time data that's used to make informed airspace decisions – notifications, flight plans, uncrewed aircraft movement and ID, crewed aircraft movement and ID, no-fly-zones, weather conditions, terrain, and more.

Who uses Vega?

Public safety authorities

use Vega to give their first responder drones airspace priority and to close air spaces during emergencies and mass events.


use Vega monitor city air traffic, prioritize air traffic, set up NFZs and close airspaces.

Civil aviation authorities

use Vega to supplement existing air traffic control systems, publish NOTAMs, close airspaces, and enforce airspace regulations.

Harmonized air traffic management at any scale 

Live motion awareness

Real-time tracking of airspace activity providing complete situational awareness and digital traffic management. 

Flight authorization

Flight plan coordination - approvals, denials and flight path alterations guaranteeing safe and efficient movement at scale.   


Defines perimeters of permanent and temporary NFZs for static and dynamic complete airspace control.

Strategic deconfliction

Conflict prevention at pre-flight planning stage via smart flight plan coordination.

Tactical deconfliction

Real-time monitoring allows for dynamic conflict prevention, solving problems as they arise mid-flight.  


Designates and enforces airspace priorities, for example for first responders and air taxis.

IFF - Identification
friend or foe

Vehicle identification via remote-ID and ADS-B capabilities, drone radar integrations and multi-directional data sharing.

Weather service

Detailed meteorological data including wind speed and direction, rainfall, humidity and cloud cover. 

Building the U-space
Vega UTM design
A new framework

Drone technology is changing the way we do business, the way we save lives, and soon, it will change the way we travel. It’s time to embrace this evolution of aviation with infrastructure that guarantees safe flight for everyone.

High Lander was established in 2018 by aviation veterans and technology experts with a dream: a fully integrated sky where crewed and uncrewed aircraft operate in harmony.

Notice for drone pilots in Israel 

According to CAAI regulation 10916, drones of net weight 200 grams and above must continuously broadcast RID data as defined by ASTM F3411-22a in order to operate in Israeli airspace. For information about how this can be done with High Lander systems, click here.
