How we work

GUTMA –the Global Uncrewed Traffic Management Association- represents organizations involved in innovative drone services and smart mobility solutions. It engages in impactful research and development and in technical, regulatory, and political processes to foster a global ecosystem in a fair global drone services market.

This ecosystem of companies in the global drone services market will add real .

  • GUTMA identifies the processes that contribute to its objectives and will cooperate in impactful research and development.

  • GUTMA supports a federated system for UTM services and fair UTM and drone services markets



Working groups

Our organisation is working to create an alignment framework in which ATM and UTM can converge. In order to achieve this context, GUTMA features the following working group:

Standards Working Group

The GUTMA Standards Working Group will liaise between Standards Developing Organizations (SDOs) and promote standard harmonization – fostering a more coherent market growth worldwide. In addition to the harmonization mission, this Working Group will provide responses and recommendations for SDOs such as EUROCAE, ASTM & ISO in the UTM ecosystem matter.


EU Drone Leaders’ Group

The Group is a high-level policy body established by the Directorate General of Transport of the European Commission, the executive branch of the European Union. It will gather regulators, institutional personalities, and industries in a series of meetings that will take place until the official adoption of the strategy, planned for the end of 2022.
