Flight Blender is a backend / data-processing engine to stand up standards-compliant UTM services that adhere to the latest regulations on UTM / U-Space in the EU and other jurisdictions. Specifically, it gives you:
- an open source Remote ID “service provider” compatible with ASTM Remote ID standard, it comes with Flight Spotlight a opensource remote ID Display Application as well.
- an open source implementation of the ASTM USS <-> USS standard and compatible with the EU U-Space regulation for flight authorisation
- ability to interact with
interuss/dss or similar interoperability software to exchange data with other UTM implementations
- ability to consume geo-fences per the ED-269 standard
- basic monitoring of conformance and operator notifications
- a flight traffic feed aggregator that has different modules that can process and relay data around flights and airspace: geo-fence, flight declarations, air-traffic data.
There are different modules that enable this:
- DSS Connectivity: There are modules to connect and read for e.g. Remote ID data from a DSS, Strategic deconfliction / flight authorization
- Flight Tracking: It takes in flight tracking feeds from various sources e.g. ADS-B, live telemetry, Broadcast Remote ID and others and outputs as a single fused JSON feed and submits it to a Display Application e.g. Flight Spotlight to be shown in real-time on a display
- Geofence: A Geofence can be submitted into Flight Blender and consequently transmitted to Spotlight
- Flight Declaration: Future flights up-to 24 hours can be submitted, this support both the ASTM USS <-> USS API and can also be used as a standalone component, for supported DSS APIs see below
- Network Remote-ID : The Network RID module is compliant with ASTM standards for Network RID and can be used as a “display provider” or as a “service provider”
- Operator Notifications: Using a AMQP queue you can send notifications to the operator
- Conformance Monitoring (beta): Monitory trajectory / flight path against the declared 4D Volume

To visualize flight tracking data you can use a complementary application like Flight Spotlight. To submit data like Geofences etc. into Flight Blender beyond the API you can use the user interface provided by Spotlight, for more information see the diagram below.
