London, UK. ATM Magazine today announced Altitude Angel, the world’s leading UTM (Unmanned Traffic Management) technology provider, has been shortlisted in two of its 2020 ATM Awards categories.

With partner Inmarsat, Altitude Angel has been shortlisted in the UTM Service Supplier Projects, which recognises pioneering technologies and procedures in UTM safety and complex operations, for its Pop Up UTM programme.

And in the ATM/UTM Integration category, which recognises outstanding efforts in integrating UTM into ATM operations, Altitude Angel and partner LVNL have been shortlisted for the launch and successful introduction of the GoDrone app.

In addition, Altitude Angel have also been recognised in a third nomination. As a partner of Frequentis, Altitude Angel have been integral to Avinor’s roll-out of UTM across Norway, with the project also being shortlisted in the ATM/UTM Integration category.

Of Altitude Angel being shortlisted, Richard Parker, Altitude Angel CEO and founder, said: “Firstly, I would like to congratulate our fellow nominees on being shortlisted. 2020 has been a challenging time for everyone within the ATM and UTM industries. But we’ve achieved a great deal over the past 12 months, from our work for the African Drone Forum and Lake Kivu challenge, launching GoDrone with LVNL, developing a potentially lifesaving platform with Inmarsat in Pop-Up UTM, as well as being an integral part of the team delivering Norway, through Avinor, a nationwide UTM platform.

“Being shortlisted for two awards and a partner in a third is testament not only to the hard work and dedication the Altitude Angel team have put in through 2020, but to the strong relationships and deep level of understanding we have with our partners across the industry. I’m proud of what we’ve achieved this year and we’re looking forward to the opportunities the new year will bring.”

The winners were originally scheduled to be announced at the World ATM Congress, but when the Congress was rescheduled from March 2021 to October, ATM Magazine made the bold decision to proceed with the awards independently.  The winners will now be announced at a virtual ceremony in the new year
