CANSO has announced the nominees for the CANSO Global Safety Achievement Award 2018. The award is given to a company or team that has made a significant contribution to reducing aviation risk in the past 12 months.
The work of the shortlisted nominees exemplifies the innovation and dedication that continues to drive aviation safety forward among CANSO Members. The winner will be announced at the CANSO Global Safety Achievement Award Dinner during the CANSO Global ATM Safety Conference 2018 in Banff, Canada.
Unifly has been nominated because, CANSO states:
"In response to the many challenges to air navigation safety presented by unmanned aircraft, Unifly created a software platform to manage drone traffic, allowing drone pilots to check if their intended drone flight can be performed without violating applicable local and national legislation and enabling authorities to manage and trace drone traffic and flight authorisations within their assigned airspace. This platform is already in use today by the national authorities of Germany, Denmark, Austria and Belgium, and Unifly is also developing and deploying systems in the US and Malawi. Continual technological innovation is increasingly important in managing new entrants to air navigation systems, and Unifly’s Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) system exemplifies that critical innovation."
