This book introduces unmanned aircraft systems traffic management (UTM) and how this new paradigm in traffic management integrates unmanned aircraft operations into national airspace systems.

Exploring how UTM is expected to operate, including possible architectures for UTM implementations, and UTM services, including flight planning, strategic coordination, and conformance monitoring, Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management: UTM considers the boundaries of UTM and how it is expected to interlace with tactical coordination systems to maintain airspace safety. The book also presents the work of the global ecosystem of players advancing UTM, including relevant standards development organizations (SDOs), and considers UTM governance paradigms and challenges.


“Michael Scott Baum took a UTM raw diamond, cut and polished it, and then explored every facet in detail. Information is sourced from the true industry experts who are building, integrating, and standardizing UTM across the world. Multiple, sometimes opposing, viewpoints are given to give the reader an understanding of the complexity of this nascent field and the directions in which it may evolve.”

Andrew Carter, ResilienX, USA

“This book is a must-read for UTM professionals and enthusiasts alike. Mr. Baum gives an in-depth, comprehensive understanding on a rapidly developing space. With a focus on understanding the basics, the book provides a terrific introduction to the concept and field of UTM.”
