How we work

Relevant ecosystem players can already engage with Airbus UTM through airspace design and analysis consultancy – helping evaluate safe practices, understand current airspace usage, analyze risk and propose new airspace structure.

Airspace Design & Analysis Consultancy

A full evaluation of national airspace and current processes is necessary to start the safe integration of unmanned aircraft into the airspace. The first step of UTM rollout is to evaluate safe practices, understand current airspace usage patterns, and propose new airspace structure and procedures to enable safe, secure efficient operations.


Airbus’s subject matter experts bring years of front-line air traffic control and design experience to evaluating airspace usage patterns around the world. Coupled with our proprietary airspace analysis tools, we provide an unmatched depth of technical analysis.

  • Design of airspace authorization programs including automated UAS flight approvals

  • Calculation of midair collision risk (airspace encounter risk) for any point on earth, by altitude and time of day.

  • Optimized design of preferred routes and procedures

  • Modeling of vertiport operations, metering and scheduling, and effects on airspace usage patterns.

  • Flow management and congestion assessment
