Over 50 U.S. airports to participate in new pilot program to enable safer UAS flights
SANTA MONICA, Calif., March 29, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- AirMap, the world's leading provider of airspace information and services for unmanned aircraft, and the American Association of Airport Executives (AAAE), through the Airport Innovation Accelerator, announced today the release of the Digital Notice and Awareness System™ (D-NAS). D-NAS™ was created to allow UAS operators to provide airports with real-time digital information about the location of their flights.
D-NAS works by allowing a UAS operator to send an encrypted digital ﬂight notice to a secure dashboard at an airport's operations center. Flight information will be able to be submitted through many different UAS interfaces, including the flying apps provided by leading drone manufacturers DJI, Yuneec, and 3DRobotics. These connections facilitate the transmission of important safety-critical information to airports, including the GPS location of the UAS flight. Participating airports will access this information through the AirMap D-NAS dashboard, which provides a map view of flights in proximity to the airport and the option to contact the UAS operator directly.
