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.


GUTMA expects a massive drone ecosystem to emerge that will only thrive if drones can fly automatically over longer distances. And it is important to appreciate that UTM is a critical enabler for the safe and efficient operation of these drones at scale.

  • 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.

Aerial Connectivity Joint Activity


ACJA, which stands for Aerial Connectivity Joint Activity, is a collaboration initiative between GUTMA and the GSMA.   ACJA focuses on promoting interchange and understanding between the aviation and cellular communities, the purpose being to enhance information sharing and avoid incompatibilities between those groups.

There is great interest from both the aviation and cellular communities in aerial cellular. However, till now the two communities have mostly investigated the topic independently, leading to a misalignment of understanding, expectations, priorities, and standards.
