London: Drone detection and mitigation provider DroneShield has announced a partnership with unmanned traffic management (UTM) provider Altitude Angel. With this partnership, the two companies are planning to offer an integrated solutions that will enable national governments and airport operators to single handedly manage their airspace.

The service will provide a ‘single-point situational awareness’ to aerodrome towers or those tasked with managing airspace, with a clear, single source picture of the sky.  By clearly distinguishing between known, authorised operations, and unknown, potential threats, support of effective responses without disrupting authorised activities can be quickly executed.

Having a clear understanding (of who or what is in the air) will not only allow informed decisions to be made quickly, but it will enable the most efficient and effective response.  This will be particularly beneficial where there is a need to detect possible threats, or security is paramount.

Connecting Altitude Angel and DroneShield market-leading technologies is an exciting step in this direction.  The drone industry is hungry for solutions enabling it to be taken into the mainstream, which demonstrate how drones can be managed safely, especially in and around areas where misuse could cause disruption.”

“Marrying GuardianUTM with DroneShield’s powerful detection systems will deliver a comprehensive solution to the industry and one I am very much looking forward to providing to our customers worldwide.”

Oleg Vornik, DroneShield’s CEO, added: “Almost daily airports around the world are seeing drone incidents endangering the safety of thousands of passengers and causing tens of millions of dollars in economic damage. Civil infrastructure operators are in need of an urgent solution.
