Skye Air ties up with the Government of Himachal Pradesh to deploy unmanned traffic management across the state

Skye Air, India’s largest SaaS based autonomous drone logistics provider, and the Government of Himachal Pradesh have signed a MoU to deploy UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) across the state. The MoU signifies a significant milestone in advancing the safety and efficiency of unmanned aerial operations in the State of Himachal Pradesh.

As the only indigenous unmanned traffic management system in India, Skye UTM provides automated airspace traffic management, generating approvals, and coordinating drone movements without manual intervention. It serves as the foundation for next-generation air traffic management systems, ensuring safety and security in the rapidly growing drone industry.

Himachal Pradesh, with its thriving industrial sectors in agriculture, hydroelectric power, cement, and tourism, has a crucial need for drones in various applications. The state’s mountainous terrain and limited road network during the monsoon and winter seasons create an opportunity for aerial trade routes, including drone transportation. With the increasing activity in the state’s airspace, factors such as weather and terrain make the deployment of the UTM system critical for managing airspace and ensuring the safety of all air traffic.

The partnership between Skye Air and the Government of Himachal Pradesh aims to achieve two main objectives. Firstly, Skye Air will deploy a state-wide UTM solution, including the setup of a UTM dashboard for all stakeholders, onboarding eligible pilots, training stakeholders on the UTM platform. Secondly, the Government of Himachal Pradesh will provide support, data, and information necessary for the frictionless operation of the project.
