By: Stephanie Eftimiades

Last week, more than 7,000 attendees from all over the world convened in Dallas, TX for AUVSI’s XPONENTIAL 2017 conference. This is the largest global community of leaders in drones, intelligent robotics and unmanned systems, and hosts officials from government and user organizations around the world. AGI’s UAS Traffic Management (UTM) team went out to debut our new UTM and Safety of Flight analytical web services.

Almost 30 years of software development, coupled with our worldwide network of partners, and over 50,000 global users, allows AGI to tackle the issues solving the analytical challenges of dynamic platform operations. AGI acheives enhanced situational awareness for UTM through system concepts analysis, pre-flight analysis and planning, and airspace deconfliction analysis.

Visitors to the booth enjoyed ice cream while learning about how AGI is addressing the challenges of UAS beyond visual line of sight, including mission planning and operational systems, UTM, and UAS Operation Centers to enable safe commercial operations.

Attendees also had the opportunity to sign up for a beta experience of the UTM system, as well as our Safety of Flight Services premiered at XPONTENIAL.

AGI’s Director of Air Operations, Chris Kucera appeared on Aero-News Network to discuss the challenges and benefits of implementing a UTM. AGI has over 30 years in the space industry implementing beyond line of site services for land, sea, air and space vehicles and is bringing these much-needed capabilities to UTM.
