The Rakuten AirMap UTM, or Unmanned Traffic Management,
platform organizes low-altitude airspace data, including regulations
and advisories, weather, terrain, and other mission-critical information
to enable safe and efficient drone operations.

Our platform lets drone operators know when and where it's safe fly their drones,
and provides real-time awareness of drone flights to airports and other airspace managers.

By connecting the drone operator and airspace managers,
Rakuten AirMap's UTM platform opens the airspace for intelligent drone flight.
