Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), more specifically Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), are incerealingly becoming a part of our day to day lives. The vast range of possible uses has created a new industry with a large economic potential. The technological developments are being developed at a much faster pace than that for manned aviation. The challenge lies in integrating the worlds of manned and unmanned aircraft in a safe and efficient way as both types of aircraft will use the same airspace.

The SESAR Horizon 2020 PODIUM project, which has been selected by the European Commission to proceed to the grant preparation phase, will demonstrate unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM) services, procedures and technologies at four operational sites in Denmark, France and the Netherlands throughout 2018 and 2019. The PODIUM project, performed by a consortium led by EUROCONTROL, supports U-space, the European Commission’s vision for the safe, secure and efficient handling of drone traffic and a key enabler for the growing drone market to generate economic and societal benefits.
