Altitude Angel Skyfarer FlyPulse BVLOS Drone Corridor

London, UK:  Altitude Angel, the world’s leading UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) technology provider, today announced it is to join an international consortium comprising of tech start-ups and a world-renowned university research department to establish a corridor in the Midlands to enable medical & other deliveries via drones beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS).

Skyfarer's solution is a system of systems, neatly packaged into a robust operational process, leveraging the expertise and technology from the technical partners. It is a platform which allows any organisation to access an ecosystem of drones, to then be used in diverse logistical operations, safely, autonomously and cost effectively with very low capital investment.

Alongside Skyfarer, Altitude Angel will be joining Swedish autonomous system solutions provider, FlyPulse, and members of the Coventry University Future Transport and Cities Research Institute.

Skyfarer is taking the first steps to creating a drone corridor in the Midlands (UK) which will connect communities, airports, and medical facilities.

On joining the consortium Richard Ellis, Altitude Angel, Chief Business Officer, said: “We are excited to be working with Skyfarer to establish safe and repeatable BVLOS capabilities integrated with other airspace users.  This is the next step in truly scaling drone operations.”
