Planning of the first Bavarian U-Space

The AMIUS (Air Mobility Initiative U-Space) project is establishing the first integrated Bavarian U-Space as its overarching goal. AMIUS is part of the Air Mobility Initiative (AMI), which is funded by the Free State of Bavaria and the Federal Republic of Germany and initiates a number of research projects.

AMIUS investigates how a U-Space based on digital services can integrate today's air traffic, including its processes and technologies, with future deployment scenarios of UAS (Unmanned Aircraft System) and eVTOLs (electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft) in a common airspace.

To this end, the required air traffic management functionalities for safe, integrated and efficient operations, through the U-Space services defined by EASA (Network Identification Service, Geo-Sensitization Service, UAS Flight Authorization Service and Traffic Information Service) will be provided and demonstrated.

as well as technical implementation of a U-Space demonstrator using a UTM system

Project duration

Project start: January 2022 Project end: December 2024

The goal

In order to guarantee the safe and efficient integrated operation of UAS, eVTOLs and general aviation in the future, new types of traffic concepts are required. The existing airspace management must be supplemented by an integrated UTM and thus expanded by the dimension of the previously uncontrolled airspace.

The AMIUS project continues to investigate how the data flow between the participating airspace users and the storage of relevant data can be secured against unauthorized external interference by various measures.

AMIUS is part of the AMI initiative (Air Mobility Initiative).

The implementation

To this end, Airbus Urban Mobility (AUM) will work with the project partners to carry out the holistic construction of a functional U-Space demonstrator with various components. The focus is on the design and technical implementation of the demonstrator using a UTM system and suitable ground infrastructures, supplemented by innovative communication technologies and a central control station.

Based on these digital services, flights within the Manching control zone, for example from the Drone Center to Ingolstadt Central Station, are planned as concrete use cases. These practical demonstrations will be supported by corresponding scientific model-based preliminary investigations, multimodal simulations with different traffic systems, feasibility studies as well as cost analyses by the participating universities.

Our contribution

As part of the AMIUS project, Droniq is building a U-Space environment around Manching and Ingolstadt.

With the UAS Traffic Management System (UTM), Droniq provides all necessary U-Space services (Network Identification Service, Geo-awareness Service, UAS Flight Authorization Service, Traffic Management Service) for the demonstration flights from Ingolstadt and Manching.

DRONIQlive: What will drive the drone market in 2024?

The end of the year is just around the corner - and with it the last episode of our DRONIQlive webinar in 2023.

Together with you, we will look towards 2024 and talk about what will move the drone market in the coming year: What will change for the use of drones in 2024? Can I still fly my drone without a C classification? What does the LBA say about operating licenses?

In our next episode of DRONIQlive, we talk to Florian Vogt (Bremen State Aviation Authority), Dr. Falk Götten (LBA) and Jörg Schamuhn (UAV Dach) about these topics.
