Welcome to the Altitude Angel developer hub. You'll find comprehensive guides and documentation to help you start working with Altitude Angel as quickly as possible, as well as support if you get stuck. Let's jump right in!

Get Started    



GuardianUTM is an open, web standards based, platform that is primarily concerned with enhancing the safety of the airspace, by providing access to accurate, up-to-date and relevant aeronautical, environmental, regulatory and drone-centric operation data.

Beyond the provision of data, GuardianUTM can proactively notify your systems whenever important events in the airspace occur, such as changes to the classification of a region of airspace, or when a tracked manned aircraft is likely to intrude on a defined region.

We continuously add functionality to GuardianUTM every week, but we guarantee that:

  • The service will be operational
  • The data is accurate and up-to-date from our suppliers
  • The data is fit for civilian use
  • Changes in local laws and regulations will automatically be reflected in our computed data feeds

How does it work?

Behind the scenes, GuardianUTM obtains data (often in real-time) from a variety of sources, including:

  • Authorities, regulators and government organisations
  • Drone companies
  • Drone pilots
  • Air traffic control companies
  • Mapping companies

As a core function, GuardianUTM standardises and de-dupes the data on the server side, meaning the data you access is standardised, easy-to-consume and fresh whenever you request it, regardless of the source.

Our APIs broadly fall into two categories:

  • Those which send and receive data about drone operations, the environment, regulations, hazards and the 'air situation' and
  • Those which are designed to be included in the real-time navigation and operation of one or more drones.
