London, UK; Altitude Angel, the world’s leading UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) technology provider, has today delivered the first phase in its commitment to Netherlands’ ANSP, Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (LVNL), to enable the country’s first nationwide UTM platform.
Phase One, the GoDrone mobile app (for iOS and Android) and companion website is a platform which provides vital safety information to recreational and commercial drone pilots in the Netherlands. The application gives users comprehensive airspace safety information critical to the operation of drones. Notice to Airmen (NOTAMs), ground hazards, terrain and current weather conditions are all displayed on an interactive map and as detailed area reports.
Using Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM O/S as the foundation technology, the mobile and web apps include:
- Multi Language support (English and Dutch)
- Netherlands specific information via local datasets e.g. Waterways and “Natura 2000” parks
- A custom set of map layers, indicating ground elevation
Having only announced the partnership in late December 2019, Altitude Angel have delivered the GoDrone web and mobile apps in a little over three months. With Phase One now complete, Altitude Angel and LVNL will begin to work on the next phase, a pre-approval for drone flights in controlled airspace (CTR) as part of the procedural and collaborative interface with ATC through U-space.
