Now is the time for the leading unmanned traffic management (UTM) providers around the world to capture a share of the emerging market. UK-based Altitude Angel has been very successful at scoring contracts with major national air traffic organizations around the world – and with their Global Partnership Program, they’re working to expand that reach down to regional and local regulators, organizations and enterprises. Today, Altitude Angel announced Spark Mobility as the first partner to join the program.
Altitude Angel’s platform is GuardianUTM (see video below). The Global Partnership introduces a partnership sales model:
“Once in place, the partnerships will work with interested parties on the introduction of Altitude Angel’s GuardianUTM platform to enable UAV technologies to operate safely and securely. This will allow drone pilots to not only undertake more complex missions, but carry out BVLOS flights in integrated airspace,” says an Altitude Angel press release.
On Spark Mobility joining the Global Partnership Program, Richard Ellis, Altitude Angel, Chief Business Officer, said: “Spark Mobility share the same vision as Altitude Angel, we both believe innovative technologies can transform business and lives in a myriad of ways. Opening the skies to integrated commercial drone operations and routine BVLOS flight will bring new opportunities which in turn will drive and develop local ‘drone economies.’
“This is an exciting partnership and I’m very much looking forward to working with Spark Mobility on solutions which will bring immediate benefits to businesses and enterprise organisations across its network.”
Manuel Guerrero, Spark Mobility, Strategic Director, added: “We are delighted to be joining Altitude Angel as the first member of the Global Partnership Programme. Our organisations possess complementary skills and expertise with shared values and a commitment to bringing leading-edge technologies to market.
“This is a very exciting time in our sector, with many new opportunities emerging, and new challenges to face; and we recognise that only by collaborating with world leading organisations like Altitude Angel will we be able to design and deliver the types of multi-dimensional solutions which will be needed to address the complex problems our clients face. We are very excited about the possibilities that the Global Partnership Programme represents and look forward to working closely with Altitude Angel and other leading organisations in the years to come.”
