how unmanned and manned air traffic can be integrated in a common airspace
and construction of the first Bavarian U-Space
as well as technical implementation of a U-Space demonstrator using a UTM system
Project start: January 2022 Project end: December 2024
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).
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.
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.
