Thales and Thaicom Establish the Foundation to Lead the UTM Deployment in Thailand

  • Thales and Thaicom, through Thaicom's subsidiary, a leading Asian satellite operator and provider of integrated satellite communications, establish the foundations of an Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) framework to enable the growth of the drone ecosystem in Thailand.
  • Thales provides a tailored offer of services to build a UTM implementation roadmap aligned with Thailand context.
  • This project signifies a significant milestone in advancing the safety and efficiency of unmanned aerial systems in Thailand.

In recent years, the integration of Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) solutions has become a pivotal aspect of modern airspace management. Thales and Thaicom subsidiary collaborate to develop a feasibility study to enable the deployment of Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) services in Thailand.

As Thailand moves towards a future where drones will play a major role in various industries, a robust UTM system is crucial. By adopting the building blocks and best practices highlighted by Thales and drawing inspiration from successful international use cases, Thailand can pave the way for a seamless and secure integration of drones into its airspace. The Thales proposed roadmap will provide a structured approach to navigate the complexities of UTM implementation.

In selecting Thales as the leading UTM technology partner, Thaicom subsidiary not only secures a renowned group but also a partner deeply invested in country’s success. Thales's knowledge of local context and global expertise will contribute to propel Thailand into a new era of drone airspace management. Together, Thales and Thaicom subsidiary are set to create a safe, efficient, and technologically advanced drone airspace in Thailand.
