Frequentis to supply Lithuania’s national drone UTM system
Austrian aviation tech specialist Frequentis has been selected to provide its unmanned traffic management (UTM) system to Lithuania’s air navigation service provider, Oro Navigacija, in an effort to integrate drone traffic into the country’s wider airspace.
Vienna-based Frequentis said it had been selected by Oro Navigacija to adapt its UTM solution to Lithuania’s skies, which like most around the globe are becoming increasingly crowded as low-altitude drones cohabitate with legacy aircraft like planes and helicopters.
That effort is expected to dovetail with similar moves afoot in Norway, Estonia, and other Baltic and Nordic nations integrating UAVs into their airspaces. That new pairing is also planned to mesh into common regional UTM systems Frequentis and Lithuania are working on through the Gulf of Finland U-space drone trials.
