Open UTM Ecosystem

New Era of Air Traffic Management

Our Values

Safe

Safety is our first priority, and we believe every operator should be able to access the airspace in a safe and responsible way.

Open

An open and inclusive UTM ecosystem is the surest path to product innovation and diversity that will attract users and grow the entire industry.

Integrated

Defining standards and regulatory frameworks will enable UTM to operate side-by-side and exist in harmony with traditional aviation.

Industry-Led UTM Services

Diversity of Operations. A network of competitive USS can better innovate and adapt to meet the evolving needs of drone operators.

Enhanced Safety. A distributed network of USS improves redundancy, eliminating single points of failure, increasing resiliency, driving automation, and ensuring the system can scale with the growth of UAS.

Reduced Costs. A distributed approach shifts the cost of infrastructure to industry or third parties while ensuring effective regulatory oversight and keeping cost low to operators.

Public-Private Collaboration on UTM

Wing is building technology, supporting research and sharing best practices to enable an open UTM ecosystem.

While Wing is most commonly associated with its drone delivery services, we are also working to lay a foundation that will enable manned and unmanned aircraft to safely share the sky.

Wing is working with authorities in the United States, Australia, France, the United Kingdom and Switzerland to develop performance-based rules for USS, as well as testing and validation processes. Wing is also helping to build digital interfaces for authorities to communicate important information to USS and drone operators, such as airspace constraints and airspace authorizations.

Global Interoperability

As we work to anticipate the operational needs of global providers and multinational drone operators, Wing is supporting the joint recognition of UTM standards to promote global alignment.

Wing is an active contributor to a variety of emerging UAS standards including remote identification, interoperability, detect and avoid and others. In order for operators to have a common experience globally and not have country-specific variations that increase complexity, it is desirable for standards to be widely embraced by industry, internationally, and by aviation regulators.

It is our hope that the global aviation community will embrace the ASTM standard outputs to support the integration of drones and harmonization across the ecosystem.
