Project RISE successfully increases automation of drone flight approvals and Air Traffic Control integration in non-segregated airspace

The UK Future Flight Challenge Consortium consisting of Dronecloud, Frequentis, Sky-Drones, Cranfield University and Skyports successfully completed Project RISE to help unlock the future of drone operations through consolidating UTM services. Field trials were successfully completed at Cranfield Airport in the UK in November 2021, demonstrating a working solution.

Integrations were developed between a Ground Control Station (GCS), an Uncrewed Traffic Management Service Provider (UTMSP) and an Air Traffic Control (ATC) interface to increase levels of automation of approvals and ATC in non-segregated airspace.
