The Global UTM Association (GUTMA) is a non-profit consortium of worldwide Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management (UTM) stakeholders. Its purpose is to foster the safe, secure and efficient integration of drones in national airspace systems. Its mission is to support and accelerate the transparent implementation of globally interoperable UTM systems. GUTMA members collaborate remotely.

GUTMA Annual Conference 2018

…is taking place in Madrid on June 5 and 6. The goal of this year’s event is twofold. Day 1 –  we will tackle some hard challenges facing UTM: how UTM services can best support the digitalization of airspace risk assessment (SORA); some promising mechanisms to ensure safe and efficient access to high-value/high-density airspace; how UTM could soon also be used for manned operations. Day 2 – will start with a live UTM demo organized by EVERIS and ENAIRE; then related UTM topics such as the role of local authorities in UTM and drones as a key part of a smart city.

UTM Architecture

The high-level UTM Architecture document describes UTM as a distributed, collaborative and evolutionary system composed of many subsystems. It provides an overview of its different stakeholders, their interests, and the required infrastructures as as well as illustrations of UTM as a “system of systems”.

Our Members

GUTMA members are distributed across 16 countries and  7 activities: Air navigation service providers,  Infrastructure and data providers, UAS manufacturers, UAS operators, UTM service providers, as well as regulatory bodies and research institutes.
