Microsoft/AirMap Venture To Create ATC For Drones

ATC For Drones?

” Anyone who offers up hard numbers for the drone population in the United States is merely guessing, especially since the FAA’s new Part 107 rule took effect last year. While the precise number isn’t really known, the trend is certainly clear: there will be more and more drones from now on. What worries people who operate airplanes, helicopters and other drones is how do we keep them from running into each other?

  Enter Microsoft Ventures, part of the same family that married Windows to the PC. Microsoft’s corporate venture fund recently helped raise $26 million to turn a California start-up company, AirMap, into a software system to keep drones in their own airspace by allowing them to communicate with other aircraft.”
