Information management is a key component of U-space, the European Commission’s vision to enable complex drone operations with a high degree of automation to take place in all types of operational environments, including urban areas. To facilitate this, existing aviation information must be tailored to the specific needs of UAS operators and address the aeronautical information sharing requirements coming from several stakeholders involved in drone operations such as other airspaces users, service providers, air traffic managers and aviation authorities.

The project DREAMS will analyse the present and future needs of aeronautical information to support the growth of unmanned aviation, ensuring the safety of operations.

The main objectives of the DREAMS project are:

  • Fill the gap between the existing information used by traditional manned aviation and the needs of the new unmanned aviation;
  • Analyse and simulate present and future real-world applications, to ensure that the system can be scaled as the market for drones grows and the number of applications increases;
  • Analyse and validate the technologies related to information exchange that will make possible the implementation of the future U-space concept for the management of drones in Europe
