U-space: From concept to operations


Friday 10 March

10:45, 60 minutes


SESAR Showcase Theatre

Session Overview

One of the main hurdles facing urban air mobility is the safe integration of drones into low-level airspace without impacting conventional air traffic operations. The AURA project developed a very large-scale demonstration connecting both ATM and U-space using system wide information management (SWIM) - an existing SESAR Solution. The main objective of this project is to create a collaborative information exchange environment between U-space and ATM systems. With this aim, the project consortium has validated this concept through several operational scenarios in different European countries. This session provide visitors with insights into this projects.
