Project

Safir-Ready

Improving emergency medical care & critical infrastructure using Advanced Aerial Mobility & new U-Space technologies.

At its core, the SAFIR-Ready research project is about improving emergency medical care and critical infrastructure through the use of Advanced Aerial Mobility and U-Space technologies. By making time critical in urgent situations, SAFIR-Ready leverages the capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles to rapidly transport medical supplies and specimens. This acceleration of response time has the potential to save lives.

Development

of new innovative U-Space services in combination with central command and control center.

Investigation

How transporting medical supplies & specimens via drones can speed up response time.

Demonstration

of USSP Traffic Management (UTM) during test flights in Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Estonia.

Project duration

Project start: June 2023
Project end: May 2026

The goal

The project aims to develop new advanced U-Space services along with a central command and control center (C2C) and automated ground integration (Drone Cargo Port - DCP) to facilitate automated, time-critical, drone-based services for medical and non-medical use cases.

The implementation

Implementation will focus in particular on a dynamic capacity management system (U3), detection and avoidance algorithms (U3), and machine-to-machine communication and decision making (U4).

The project will extend use cases to non-medical critical missions, such as transporting materials from shore to ship and inspecting rail and power grids in the event of unforeseen infrastructure problems (e.g., a tree falling on a high-voltage cable).

Our contribution

Droniq is part of the research project and leads work package 2 "Advanced Holistic U-Space Services". The goal is to build technical capabilities, define the U-Space ecosystem in the U3/U4 domain and develop advanced U-Space services U3/U4.

Droniq takes the role of the USSP in Germany (Braunschweig) and the Netherlands (Heerlen-Sittard) in the demonstrations, using their U-Space UTM.

DRONIQlive: How drones help to rescue fawns

Rescuing fawns with the help of drones is a hot topic. Every spring, farmers start mowing their fields and unfortunately fawns are often caught by the mowing machines without being detected.

Drones can be a great help in saving the animals! Equipped with thermal imaging cameras, drone pilots can spot the animals from the air before it is too late. This allows farmers, hunters or other helpers to rescue the fawns in good time.

In our next edition of DRONIQlive on Thu, 23.05.2024 at 7 pm, we will take a closer look at this topic. We look forward to your participation!
