An online webinar series brought to you by GUTMA, the Global UTM Association.

GUTMA is excited to present its 2021 Harmonized Skies webinar series. The series consists of six webinars taking place throughout May and June focusing on the harmonization of unmanned traffic management (UTM) and air traffic management (ATM) services.

This year’s series features some of the leading stakeholders in the UTM space. Sessions will provide a range of perspectives for you to gain a comprehensive understanding of how important UTM and ATM harmonization is for the industry.

“Coming together as an industry to discuss and progress these important topics is vital for the success and harmonization of future airspace operations. I am looking forward to being part of the dialogue between people who really can make the difference.” Koen DE VOS, Secretary General of GUTMA.

Here is an overview of each session and the confirmed speakers:

Emerging global UTM trendsRegister

May 12th, 16:00-17:00 CET

This webinar will provide a high-level overview of the latest trends in UTM technology and regulation. Panelists from EASA and FAA will discuss the latest on Remote ID as well as U-Space Regulation. We will discuss the role of connectivity in UTM and the latest from one of the most advanced drone operators.

UTM services for UAM | Technical and Operational perspectives  > Register

May 20th, 16:00-17:00 CET

This webinar will inform on the benefit that UTM services can provide to enable UAM operations. From flight planning to conformance monitoring to weather and more, we will discover how UAM operations can benefit from significant UTM support to be fully harmonized with other air traffic.

Approval requirements for UTM service supplier  > Register

June 2nd, 16:00-17:00 CET

UTM service suppliers have long awaited when their services could be used as safety mitigations from their customers. The European U-Space Regulation will allow just that, but with the privilege comes the burden of a challenging certification. This webinar will explore just how challenging a certification can be and what this will mean for providers emerging industries.

Airspace Fairness | Introduction  > Register

June 11th, 16:00-17:00 CET

The airspace is a public good, and with the significant increase of demand for its usage posed by the advent of drones and UAM, fair access is becoming crucial. Governments and stakeholders will have to agree on principles for fair access to airspace. From a first-come-first-serve principle to auctioning, several options are on the table. In this webinar, we want to explore the available options and understand why fairness could be one of the most difficult challenges to scale drone operations.

Performance requirements in UTM environment  > Register

June 24th, 16:00-17:00 CET

With the ever-increasing need for safety-relevant UTM services, the question of performance requirements can no longer be postponed. How precise should a drone position be? How frequently should it be updated? What happens if a system is down? Aviation authorities around the world and Standard Development Organizations are hard at work to answer these and many other questions. Come and hear their perspective at the fifth webinar of the Harmonized Skies series.

BVLOS | Airspace characterization and the challenges of air risk modelling  > Register

June 30th, 16:00-17:00 CET

Air risk modelling is the new trend. The European U-Space Regulation explicitly points to an airspace risk assessment as a critical precondition to establishing U-Space airspace. The JARUS Specific Operations Risk Assessment introduced a qualitative model that has served the industry well, but quantification is needed to scale. What are the challenges associated with air risk modelling, and how can we find solutions that would allow increased access for all drone operators?
