ATM/UTM – Air Traffic Management & Unmanned aircraft system Traffic Management

Accelerating the evolution of ATM (Air Traffic Management)/UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) integration and automation

After decades of continuous improvement, the introduction of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) creates new challenges for air traffic management (ATM). ATM systems require the development of a tailored approach for unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM), while ensuring the development and compatibility of both traffic management systems. ATM and UTM alignment and integration require a full understanding of both ecosystems from products to procedures, systems and human factors.

Leading the way

Drawing on our unique expertise in related infrastructures (airports, naval and military air bases, etc.) and aircraft (commercial aircraft, Electrical vertical take off landing (eVTOL), drones, etc.), our experts have a holistic understanding of ATM/UTM ecosystems. We collaborate closely with local and global authorities to safely integrate the new forms of air transportation and ensure the balance between operability and technological revolutions.
