Airspace assessment (UAM) and a Military perspective of U-space

A European Network of U-space Demonstrators webinar

Current restrictions imposed across Europe due to COVID-19 have resulted in an enhanced need to deliver medical equipment quickly between hospitals, monitor movement of people in cities under restrictions, and limit tasks that require face-to-face interaction by having them performed by drones. This has further emphasised the need for U-space to enable management of unmanned traffic in very low level airspace in a safe and efficient manner.

To this end, we are organising a series of webinars, where members of the European Network of U-space Demonstrators from across Europe will share their U-space know-how and experience.

The second webinar focused on the:

  • outcome of airspace assessment in Riga an vision of Latvian ANSP for drone operations;
  • U-Space - NATO UAS Staff officer's military perspective.

Our webinars consist of presentations from U-space leaders, followed by a panel discussion, where you will have the opportunity to submit your questions to the panellists.

On 19 October 2018, the European Commission launched the European Network of U-space Demonstrators to support U-space projects and solutions. The network is a forum to share U-space lessons learned to accelerate transition from demonstrations to implementation, whilst ensuring drone operations are safe, secure and green.
