The Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management system is an innovative traffic control system being developed by NASA to regulate, monitor and control the traffic of drones in the sky.

The system will allow drone pilots to stay in communication with a centralized system. Pilots will be anle to enter flight plans and go about making use of special displays and even apps to feed information and make use of it.

While the advent and growing popularity of personal and business drones have created lots of exciting possibilities, it has also thrown up challenges. With more and more companies looking to take advantage of drones to deliver packages, there is a need for smart traffic control systems to make drone operations safe and efficient, which is precisely why the Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management system is so important.
