Google heads consortium to integrate UTM communications technology globally

Project Wing from Google and five unmanned aerial system (UAS) service supplier (USS) partners have launched a global, grid-based open-source communications platform called InterUSS Platform, as a first stage in de-conflicting UAS flights anywhere in the world.

InterUSS Platform divides the world into 750 m grids. When a UAS – connected to an unmanned traffic management (UTM) platform provided by AirMap, Altitude Angel, PrecisionHawk, Skyward, Unifly and Project Wing – enters the grid, an alert message will be sent to other USS operators.

The system uses Apache License free software to allow de-confliction operations on a machine-to-machine basis, using the algorithms developed by each service provider. InterUSS Platform will be opened up to new partners in the coming months, with the Switzerland-based Global UTM Association (GUTMA) providing support in this area.

The work builds on a NASA TCL 3 UTM research programme from April 2018, when UAS flights using the Project Wing and AirMap UTM platforms were safely routed around each other.
