Dr Terry Martin is the Project Director for a Nova Systems led UTM Consortium undertaking R&D and UAV/UTM trials in Singapore. The Project partners include AGI OneSky, Scout Aerial, Rohde and Schwarz, M1, Amazon and Intel. The project scope, which is co-funded by the Singaporean Ministry of Transport, via their Civil Aviation Authority (CAAS) spans a range of enabling activities (Project Management, Trial Planning and Management, Safety Analysis) alongside focused efforts to customise a UTM for the densely populated Singaporean environment, capture and model the 4G/5G signal propagation, and finally, explore the principles of performance based CNS, its impact on separation for UAV’s and UAM and the flow through effects to Routing and Scheduling, Conformance Monitoring. Conflict Detection and Alerting, Dynamic Geofencing, and strategic deconfliction.
Dr Martin holds a PhD in Applied Machine Learning, and is a former military aerospace engineer, with significant experience with manned and unmanned platforms. Aside from his primary role as Project Director, Dr Martin is an Adjunct Professor at both Queensland University of Technology, and the University of South Australia. His current research interests include the development of UTM separation standards and the enhancement of functional services for UAV Traffic Management. He also has significant experience with UAV and UTM regulatory development, having previously acted as the Industry Chair for the CASA UAV Standards Committee. Currently, Dr Martin is heavily involved with JARUS, via WG4 &6, where he leads the Quantitative Methods sub-group which is establishing data driven methods for establishing Ground and Air risk.
Dr Martin is associate member of the Global UTM Association.
