“The opening of our new office in Cranfield, a strategic center for businesses in the UK and the region, is a continuation of our efforts, which began with our active collaboration on the Open Access UTM project that started in 2018. We are committed to supporting this The development and promotion of the drone industry in the region and I can think of no better than Brent to lead this effort, ”said Amit Ganjoo, CEO of ANRA Technologies.
ANRA has been active in the British market since 2018, starting with the Open Access UTM project, which is managed by Connected Places Catapult (CPC) on behalf of the Department for Transport (DfT). The project was responsible for researching a future Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Traffic Management (UTM) framework that could enable future service providers, operators, manned aerospace operators and regulators to participate in the intelligent control of airspace. The report summarizing the results of Phase 1 was recently published and can be downloaded here.
The report is the result of a year-long project sponsored by the Department for Transport and working with employees such as ANRA Technologies, NATS and the Satellite Applications Catapult. It contains the architecture for an open access UTM system and scenarios for important areas such as the management of permissions to fly drones in a restricted airspace and several drone operations in an uncontrolled airspace.
The next phase of the project has recently started and includes CPC as well as ANRA Technologies, Altitude Angel, GE Aviation, NATS, Snowflake Software and Thales. The group will conduct a series of technical workshops to drive the development of the Open Access UTM framework and to provide demonstrations of the future operational use of UTM.
