The event concluded with the following key areas that the Network needs to focus on:
- Guarantee safety of skies in an open competition framework to deliver U-space services;
- Create a buoyant U-space service marketplace that addresses the business interests of all the stakeholders in the value-chain - including drone service providers, OEMs, U-Space Service providers, ANSPs, drone manufacturers, telecommunication operators, etc. – whilst creating a business environment offering cost-effective, U-space services;
- Promote diversity of operations associated with the varied potential applications in domains such as emergency response, healthcare, agriculture, maritime, energy, security etc. by delivering an open, flexible and interoperable U-Space infrastructure that can handle and manage such diversity;
- Build trust in society – by heightening public confidence in the capability of U-space Service Providers and Drone Operators to deliver the safety, security and privacy that citizens and businesses expect.
- Collect “lessons learned” from the worldwide U-space projects and demonstrations – to accelerate time to market and de-risk implementations in Europe, notably with emphasis on validation of the concepts of operation.
