[Avionics Today 09-08-2016] AirMap, provider of an airspace management platform for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), and Passur Aerospace, provider of an air traffic management platform for manned aviation, have partnered to integrate Passur’s live flight data with AirMap’s real-time traffic alert system for drones.
AirMap and PASSUR have agreed to integrate Passur’s aircraft surveillance data, including aircraft position updates every 1 to 4.6 seconds, with AirMap’s real-time traffic alerts, which provide live updates to drone operators about the position and trajectory of manned aircraft in the local environment.
The partnership aims to make real-time data about manned aircraft flights from Passur’s commercial passive radar and ground-based flight surveillance network available to UAS stakeholders and application developers who use AirMap’s developer platform.
