AIRMAP, an airspace management platform for drones, announced that its unmanned traffic management (UTM) services are being deployed by Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic (ANS CR).
AirMay will deliver situational awareness and authorisation capabilities to the country's growing community of drone operators, reported the American Journal of Transportation.
ANS CR is deploying AirMap UTM to manage authorisations for drone flights in the controlled airspace around Vaclav Havel Airport Prague.
Operators using the AirMap for Drones mobile application can view up-to-date airspace conditions, advisories, and regulatory information; create flight plans; and very soon will also be able to request authorisation to fly in controlled airspace for fast and safe access to controlled airspace.
This is AirMap's second nationwide adoption in Europe. Earlier this year, Swiss aviation authority skyguide, deployed AirMap as part of Europe's first national drone traffic management system. AirMap also powers UTM services in the United States, New Zealand, and Japan.'By opening up more airspace we are helping give rise to a new drone economy,' said AirMap chairman Ben Marcus. 'The Czech Republic is among the global first movers in the race to capture a share of the tremendous opportunity that drones represent as they become more and more a part of our everyday lives.'
