US-based Passur Aerospace has signed an agreement to integrate its live flight data with AirMap’s real-time traffic alert system for unmanned aircraft, also known as drones.

Through the partnership, drone and app developers who use AirMap’s platform will be provided with real-time data about manned aircraft flights.

The data will be supplied from Passur’s commercial passive radar and ground-based flight surveillance network.

"AirMap’s partnership with Passur will make the skies safer for both manned and unmanned aircraft."

Drone operators will also be able to share real-time digital information about the location of manned aircraft using Passur’s databases and air traffic management products.

AirMap CEO Ben Marcus said: “AirMap’s partnership with Passur will make the skies safer for both manned and unmanned aircraft.

“By adding Passur’s real-time information about manned aircraft to AirMap’s existing data about live and hyperlocal flight conditions, we are enhancing situational awareness in low-altitude airspace, and making beyond-line-of-sight flight and deconfliction with manned aircraft possible for drones.”

Passur operates a commercial passive radar and ground-based surface flight surveillance network, and provides aircraft position updates.

The company’s aircraft surveillance data will be integrated with AirMap’s real-time traffic alerts, which provide live updates to drone operators about manned aircraft in the local environment.

Passur integrates multiple overlapping, real-time surveillance sources to reliably locate aircraft at any time.

Passur Aerospace president and CEO James Barry said: “This partnership further solidifies our position as the leader in aviation’s big data, leveraging our unique data, solutions, and expertise to ensure that the emerging drone operator community is being integrated seamlessly and safely within the existing national airspace system.”
