Terminology: ATC

ATC – Air Traffic Control.

For operations conducted in, or near, controlled airspace you may need to contact the ATC and often times have them issue a NOTAM for your UAV flights.

Wikipedia – ATC

is a service provided by ground-based controllers who direct aircraft on the ground and through controlled airspace, and can provide advisory services to aircraft in non-controlled airspace. The primary purpose of ATC worldwide is to prevent collisions, organize and expedite the flow of traffic, and provide information and other support for pilots.[1] In some countries, ATC plays a security or defensive role, or is operated by the military.
