ANRA Technologies Launches SmartSkies Drone Airspace Authorization Platform for Airport Control Zones and Sensitive Areas

In response to the evolving global regulatory framework and a growing demand for intelligent, safe and secure airspace management capabilities for autonomous systems, ANRA Technologies, a leader in UAS Traffic Management (UTM) capabilities, today announced the release of SmartSkies CTR (TM). A scalable and highly adaptable family of software services that enables coordination, SmartSkies(TM) provides execution and management of drone operations in controlled and uncontrolled airspace. SmartSkies(TM) CTR specifically addresses airspace management for Airport Control Zones and other sensitive airspace.

“We are proud to announce an addition to our family with the launch of SmartSkies(TM) CTR,” said Amit Ganjoo, CEO and Founder of ANRA Technologies. “ANRA is addressing an immediate need with our cutting edge technology that meets today’s regulatory requirements. Now is the time to start implementing these capabilities for Airport Controlled Zones and other sensitive areas.”

Automated Airport Controlled Zone Access

SmartSkies CTR (TM) allows drone pilots to obtain approval for drone operations within controlled or sensitive airspace using a simple mobile application or web portal. It provides real-time, automated processing of airspace authorizations based on criteria set by stakeholders such as Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) or regulators. ANRA’s intelligent app checks the airspace for any dynamic and static conflicts, and if none exist, airspace authorization is automatically granted unless further coordination is required, whereupon the pilot receives an alert. Further coordination requests are routed to the relevant stakeholders, allowing multiple levels of coordination that can include airspace controlled by different agencies. SmartSkies(TM) reduces the burden on airport tower personnel, which benefit from having assurance that approved drones will operate in areas that do not interfere with other drones or manned aircraft.

The ANRA SmartSkies CTR (TM) mobile app gives drone pilots a simple method to apply for instant approvals to fly within Airport Control Zones.

Built-in Features

SmartSkies(TM) built-in features include integrating data from existing aeronautical data sources and creation of custom dynamic airspace zones in addition to ingesting information from supplementary data sources like weather and terrain. It also supports drone tracking, traffic deconfliction, auditing, non-conformance alerts, geofencing, and electronic conspicuity for identifying drones and their pilots – all while adhering to privacy limitations within a secure system.

Based on feedback from regulators and ANSPs, ANRA added a feature for two-way text communication between drone pilots and airport towers. Only authorized tower personnel will be able to communicate with drone pilots using SmartSkies(TM) technology, helping to improve coordination during airport-related emergencies. In choosing to use open interfaces with this new offering, ANRA easily expands communication options and is currently researching improved human-to-machine interactions to ensure pilot flight safety.

Advanced Optional Features Available

Within the SmartSkies(TM) family of technology platforms are optional services that permit networked information exchanges between stakeholders – enabling unprecedented shared situational awareness and capabilities. SmartSkies™ also supports the integration of surveillance data using standard interfaces such as ASTERIX as well as tracking and conformance monitoring for drones. Additionally, it can support strategic deconfliction of drones from manned traffic, including in-flight deconfliction.

SmartSkies(TM) is designed to support a broad spectrum of operations with ever-increasing complexity and risk through an innovative, modular design that interfaces with today’s air traffic infrastructure, and readily scales for future innovation.
