A Path Forward for Airspace
& Traffic Management

The aerospace industry is moving incredibly quickly with innovations in aircraft types, sizes, and flight capabilities. The introduction of these new vehicles is no longer a question of if, but when - and in order to support this growth, a more modernized and scalable approach to air traffic control is needed. It is critical that the UTM frameworks being developed today consider all airspace users and the impact that integration of unmanned traffic will have on commercial aviation.

 

To that extent, Airbus and Boeing have jointly released, “A New Digital Era of Aviation: The Path Forward for Airspace and Traffic Management,” a whitepaper highlighting how new technologies and new ways of thinking will help to evolve air traffic management systems of the future.

In this paper, you will read how unmanned aircraft system (UAS) traffic management (UTM) can safely and efficiently advance future airspace and traffic management. Our key takeaways:

  • UTM is for today and tomorrow. 

  • The UTM concepts and services being developed today are establishing the building blocks for the management of all airspace, for all airspace users, into the future.

  • UTM will offer digital and automated services which can pave the way for future services and new concepts of operation, while working alongside and converging with current ATM advancements. 

     

We think about UTM not as a separate system to ATM, but as an integrated system. Airbus and Boeing, given their aviation excellence, are well positioned to help evolve traffic management.
