Austrian ANSP Austro Control is also taking its first steps into the UTM arena by releasing the “Powered by Unifly” mobile application to allow Class 1 drone flights to be validated by means of an easy to use tool.
The Supervisor Map web application allows Austro Control to monitor all ongoing flights reported by drone pilot using the Austro Control mobile app.
The Map Manager module enables Austro Control to initiate no-drone zones in real-time, either temporarily or on a more permanent basis.
The Austro Control UTM system includes the integration of NOTAM announced no-drone zones allowing the use of this essential information for both visualization and flight validation purposes. Visualization of these zones is supported via a public website and via the Austro Control mobile app.
