DRONE-TRAFFIC-MANAGEMENT

WHAT DOES THE UTM SERVICE OFFER?

Droniq combines the best of both worlds in the UTM: DFS's aviation know-how and Telekom's mobile communications expertise. 

At the core of Droniq's product offering is a drone traffic management system, the UAS Traffic Management System (UTM), which provides combined air situational awareness of manned and unmanned aerial vehicles, as well as other functions for safe and efficient drone beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations. 

Nationwide, the UTM is the first fully operational UAS Traffic Management System to safely and efficiently integrate drones into the airspace. 

You can find out exactly how this works here!

CONSTITUENTS
OF THE UTM SERVICE

Droniq provides you with the necessary hardware, consisting of a transponder for tracking the aircraft, the Hook-on-Device (HOD) or Dronetag mini and optionally a system for ground sensors (Mobile Ground Station, Fixed Ground Station or Omnidirectional Ground Station). Together with an online access to the web-based UTM system (e.g. UTM TrackViewer) you are ready for a professional drone operation in compliance with the applicable regulations. The display of the aerial situation picture as well as the hosting is provided by DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung.

SUPPORT IN ALL PHASES OF THE DRONE FLIGHT

Our UTM approach is oriented towards the entire value chain of professional beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone flying. In doing so, the system supports the controller in all phases of the flight.

Pre-Flight Phase

In the pre-flight phase, the operator registers in the UTM, plans his mission. Checks it for no-fly zones or airspace restrictions. After the flight has been validated, he receives precise information on which permits may still need to be obtained. He also receives information about other registered flight movements.

In-flight phase

In the in-flight phase, the UTM tracks the drone in real time using HOD4track or Dronetag. Other relevant air traffic is also displayed in the Flight View (manned and unmanned aircraft registered in the UTM). If the drone pilot deviates from his planned flight path or leaves the airspace blocked for his mission or comes too close to other airspace participants, he receives a warning.

Post-Flight Phase

The UTM system components of the post-flight phase help with the evaluation and follow-up of the flight (e.g. maintenance of the logbook, incident management, battery management).

HOW DOES
THE UTM WORK?

HOOK ON DEVICE

The LTE module with integrated SIM card attached to the drone sends its position data and optional payload data (videos, photos, sensor data) via the Telekom mobile network. The drone also receives control commands (command & control) via this network.

MOBILE RADIO NETWORK

The mobile network is already available nationwide and serves as the basic infrastructure.

PAYLOAD DATA

The payload data is provided to the drone controller or end user in a cloud-based manner.

WEB CLIENT & APP

Via his UTM access, the drone controller keeps an eye on the airspace in the close-up range and is informed about all relevant flight activities. Flight preparation and post-processing are also carried out via the UTM, as is the entire user administration.

DRONE DETECTION SYSTEMS

Via an interface, all common drone detection systems can be connected to the UTM and thus determine which drones are potentially dangerous by means of data reconciliation.

NON-COOPERATIVE DRONES

Drones flying without an LTE module are initially not visible to the UTM. However, with the sensor technology of drone detection systems, these drones can also be located and incorporated into the UTM as a position source.

GROUND SENSING

The ground sensor system receives position data from short-range VFR traffic such as FLARM and ADS-B and sends this position data to the UTM via mobile radio.

MANNED AIR TRAFFIC POSITION DATA

The transponder data of commercial aircraft (IFR) are received and processed via the radar infrastructure of DFS.

INTERFACE TO THE DFS

The data of manned air traffic relevant for drones also flows into the UTM via an interface.

DRONIQlive: How drones help to rescue fawns

Rescuing fawns with the help of drones is a hot topic. Every spring, farmers start mowing their fields and unfortunately fawns are often caught by the mowing machines without being detected.

Drones can be a great help in saving the animals! Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, drone pilots can spot the animals from the air before it is too late. This allows farmers, hunters or other helpers to rescue the fawns in good time.

In our next edition of DRONIQlive on Thu, 23.05.2024 at 7 pm, we will take a closer look at this topic. We look forward to your participation!
