WASHINGTON - In response to the evolving global regulatory framework and a growing demand for intelligent, safe and secure airspace management capabilities for autonomous systems, ANRA Technologies, a leader in UAS Traffic Management (UTM) capabilities, today announced the release of SmartSkies(TM). A scalable and highly adaptable family of software services that enables coordination, SmartSkies(TM) provides execution and management of drone operations in controlled and uncontrolled airspace. SmartSkies(TM) CTR specifically addresses airspace management for Airport Control Zones and other sensitive airspace.
"We are proud to announce an addition to our family with the launch of SmartSkies(TM) CTR," said Amit Ganjoo, CEO and Founder of ANRA Technologies. "ANRA is addressing an immediate need with our cutting edge technology that meets today's regulatory requirements. Now is the time to start implementing these capabilities for Airport Controlled Zones and other sensitive areas."
Automated Airport Controlled Zone Access
SmartSkies(TM) allows drone pilots to obtain approval for drone operations within controlled or sensitive airspace using a simple mobile application or web portal. It provides real-time, automated processing of airspace authorizations based on criteria set by stakeholders such as Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) or regulators. ANRA's intelligent app checks the airspace for any dynamic and static conflicts, and if none exist, airspace authorization is automatically granted unless further coordination is required, whereupon the pilot receives an alert. Further coordination requests are routed to the relevant stakeholders, allowing multiple levels of coordination that can include airspace controlled by different agencies. SmartSkies(TM) reduces the burden on airport tower personnel, which benefit from having assurance that approved drones will operate in areas that do not interfere with other drones or manned aircraft.
The ANRA SmartSkies(TM) mobile app gives drone pilots a simple method to apply for instant approvals to fly within Airport Control Zones.
