EDGE Invests in High Lander, a Leader in Unmanned Air Traffic Management

The UAE’s EDGE, one of the world’s leading advanced technology and defense groups, has announced a strategic investment in High Lander, the company behind Universal UTM, a drone-agnostic unmanned traffic management solution. The $14 million investment creates a ground-breaking partnership and is already forging ongoing deals and high-value opportunities in both the military and civilian domains between some of the world’s biggest technology providers, as both companies progress along their respective roadmaps.

As part of its international growth strategy, EDGE, which comprises an impressive portfolio of 20 complementary companies, is placing a clear focus on the development of autonomous systems, including unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), smart weapons, and cyber technologies. The group is keen to further assist High Lander in developing its next-generation Universal UTM solution, which enables the safe coexistence of manned and unmanned aviation. EDGE aims to utilise Universal UTM in the management of autonomous operations.

High Lander’s Universal UTM oversees the busiest airspaces, enabling multiple, simultaneous drone operations. From pre-flight authorization to mid-mission changes and post-flight logs, Universal UTM enables efficient management of all aspects of airspace control.

This strategic partnership will allow EDGE to advance its autonomous capabilities and High Lander to scale globally, positioning them at the forefront of the command and control (C2) and unmanned traffic management (UTM) sectors relating to drones.
