LVNL, Altitude Angel, AirHub & SenHive collaborate to demonstrate Common Information System (CIS) for Netherlands’ airspace 

London, UK & Amsterdam, Netherlands: A consortium of Dutch and Anglo companies are to demonstrate how a Common Information Service (CIS) can support and enable commercial drone across the Netherlands.  

In front of a specially invited delegation of industry stakeholders, Altitude Angel, Senhive and Airhub will together demonstrate the capabilities of a CIS and how it can be the gateway to delivering a secure, performant, and reliable interface between the ANSP and all U-space stakeholders, such as USSPs, authorities, national registration, public safety, and defence.  

The comprehensive CIS demonstration will involve Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM platform fusing LVNL’s ATM Radar Data (ASTERIX Categories 21, 48 and 62) with surveillance sources including drone detection systems from Senhive, UAS RemoteID, ADS-B, and Altitude Angel’s ARROW technology, to create a consolidated and comprehensive lower-airspace traffic picture.  

For the showcase, Altitude Angel has created a common, open, and interoperable interface for USSPs to receive static and dynamic geo-awareness data from LVNL and share flights with other U-space stakeholders.  It will also act as an ‘authorisation broker’ which routes UAS plans to LVNL’s GoDrone system for approval to operate in controlled airspace and updates the USSP in real-time with the authorisation.  

On the CIS demonstration, Richard Parker, Altitude Angel, CEO and founder said: “This demonstration is a milestone in the development of the Netherlands drone ecosystem. The CIS is the critical foundation stone on which multiple drone operations, all flying BVLOS, can be built.  

‘’This is an important step in the integration of safe and efficient traffic flows of unmanned and manned air traffic in one Dutch airspace” added Wouter Pekela, LVNL, Program Manager Unmanned Aviation.
