EU founded projects, we are proud of
H2020, SESAR JU, ESA projects are an important element of out development and go to market strategy. We treat each project individually, engaging in its entirety.
Integrated Common Altitude Reference system for U–space
The definition of the common altitude reference system is fundamental to enhance the capacity of the airspace and the separations among UASs, especially in the urban environment, where the new potential markets of package delivery and drone taxi applications are just waiting to be unlocked.
With the further enhancement of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and air taxis in the rapidly growing drone market comes the need for the evolution of technologies and framework conditions for their safe coexistence with manned aircraft.
The SESAR JU project “GOF 2.0 Integrated Urban Airspace Validation”, with a consortium of 15 members, will focus on the safe, secure, and sustainable integration of unmanned aerial vehicle and air taxi operations in urban airspace.
Defining the collaborative environment needed for airspace
In the increasing U-space services sector, information exchanges with air traffic management (ATM) systems are key for the integration of drones. The EU-funded PJ34-W3 AURA project will ease the entrance of new actors into the existing and future air traffic environment. The project will develop the required concept of operations for U-space information exchange with ATM systems.
5G!Drones aim is to trial several UAV use-cases covering eMBB, URLLC, and mMTC 5G services, and to validate 5G KPIs for supporting such challenging use-cases. The project will drive the UAV verticals and 5G networks to a win-win position, on one hand by showing that 5G is able to guarantee UAV vertical KPIs, and on the other hand by demonstrating that 5G can support challenging use-cases that put pressure on network resources, such as low-latency and reliable communication, massive number of connections and high bandwidth requirements, simultaneously. 5G!Drones will build on top of the 5G facilities provided by the ICT-17 projects and a number of support sites, while identifying and developing the missing components to trial UAV use-cases.
The BFPaaS objectives are closely linked to the current procedures developed for UAV BVLOS flights control within the frame of EU U-Space program. In principle, the drone operator is responsible for his /her operations security, that especially in the pre-flight phase, requires detailed knowledge of the terrain profile along the planned route which is crucial for security reasons.
