Kansas to Use AirMap in Pioneering Effort at Unmanned Traffic Management

Kansas is taking a leadership position in efforts to expand and grow the drone industry in a manner that is safe and responsible. Using Airmap technology Kansas will be the first state in the country to implement an Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) capability.

Unmanned Traffic Management, or UTM, is the technological infrastructure that facilitates data exchange and air traffic control for drones. By implementing technologies that will one day be part of a nationwide UTM framework, Kansas is the first U.S. state to take a proactive approach to protecting the privacy, safety and security of state residents while empowering drone entrepreneurship. The KDOT-AirMap partnership will foster a thriving drone economy with the potential to contribute billions in economic impact and create thousands of jobs in the state.
