Thales ECOSystem UTM LAANC (Low Altitude Authorization and Notification Capability) service to be launched in the US summer 2019
The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 requires that recreational flyers are now required to obtain prior authorization from the FAA before flying in controlled airspace around airports.
Thales ECOSystem UTM provides a platform to automatically evaluate and approve both commercial and recreational operators’ requests for missions which comply with the regulations and notifications processes set by the FAA.
Thales is an authorized LAANC provider and is now approved to support recreational and professional drone operators. The service will commence operations shortly and Thales is seeking initial users to participate in our LAANC service launch.
