Unifly, a Belgium-based provider of an unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) traffic management (UTM) platform, has opened its first office in the U.S.
The software company’s new base, supported by the Belgian-American Chamber of Commerce, will be located in New York City.
Unifly says its UTM platform is helping to further integrate drones into national airspace. The platform supports drone operators, local authorities, aviation authorities and solution providers, the company says.
In recent months, Unifly has won several projects for a phased implementation of its UTM platform, including contracts from the German and Danish airspace authorities. Unifly has also joined forces with Thales to include the core UTM technology in the aviation software giant’s ecosystem solution.
“The U.S. is a fast-growing market that holds a strong interest for Unifly,” comments Marc Kegelaers, CEO of Unifly. “More specifically, we are a partner in the NUAIR Alliance, the New York-based coalition of over 100 companies who collaborate in UAS test ranges along the East Coast.”
