In this webinar Phil Binks, Head of ATM at Altitude Angel, is joined by Anthony Spouncer, Senior Director of UAVs & UTM at Inmarsat Aviation and Gokhan Celik, A-techSYN’s Chief Executive Office. Together, they discuss the recent live demonstrations of our jointly developed Pop-Up UTM solution and how it can enable a wide-variety of use-cases for organisations wishing to utilise drones remotely. Throughout the discussion, they cover a range of topics, including:
• What instigated the collaboration between Inmarsat Aviation and Altitude Angel on this project? • How quickly can a remote UTM be established through Pop-Up UTM, and what is the operational range for UAVs utilising Inmarsat's satellite infrastructure?
