The Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) Joint Undertaking has informed us that it has just published a call which aims at performing demonstration/live testing activities for identifying quick-win solutions enabling the safe integration of drones, in all kinds of airspace.
This call is framed in the context of the recent “Warsaw Declaration” which acknowledged the need for urgent action on the airspace dimension, in particular the development of solutions for low level operations (“U-Space”).
What is SESAR?
The Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) project was launched in 2004 as the technological pillar of the Single European Sky (SES). Its role is to define, develop and deploy what is needed to increase ATM performance and build Europe’s intelligent air transport system.
Established in 2007 as a public-private partnership, the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SESAR JU) is responsible for the modernisation of the European air traffic management (ATM) system by coordinating and concentrating all ATM relevant research and innovation efforts in the EU.
What is the Warsaw Declaration?
The Warsaw declaration is about “Drones as a leverage for jobs and new business opportunities”. To read the declaration in detail, please download it from the members only area here.
