in the Dept. of Defense's Future Vertical Lift program, with the goal to
replace 2,000 to 4,000 medium class attack helicopters. The Bell Helicopter/Spirit

Is Working On The UTM To Control UAS's 2-10-16
NASA Ames Research Center is working
on an automated air traffic control system for Unmanned Aerial Systems.
They have a program called the UTM (unmanned aircraft traffic management)
It is a cloud based system that will work with government, industry, and
academic partners to help define and keep track of UAS's in a segment of
airspace below 500 feet. The UTM will ensure traffic separation between
drones, UAV's and aircraft in the FAA traffic system. The plan talks about
four levels of implementation with level four planned for 2019 and is designed
for higher-density urban areas for autonomous vehicles used for news gathering
and package delivery. (Probably people as well.)
