TINDAIR - Tactical Instrumental Deconfliction And in flight Resolution

TINDAiR VLD is meant to demonstrate the safe integration of UAM as additional airspace user.  The results of the VLD help to refine the safety, performance, standardisation and regulatory requirements to enable UAM. The VLD includes the execution of flight demonstrations in accordance with the safety conditions.

Four  mission/flights take place with different operating methods, in coordination with all the relevant partners, and using more VTOL platforms carrying human passengers and medical equipment to simulate the variety of possible U-space users in the near future. The demonstration flights also include vehicles with full autonomous capabilities for automated safe procedures as well as helicopters.

Flight demonstrations address mainly the point defined as “mandated” for U-space 3 requirements, the tactical conflict resolution and emergency landing with a focus on the pre-flight checks for possible conflicts in strategic phase and in-flight checks for enabling each single VTOL operating in that airspace to rely on a DAA (detect and avoid) service providing instructions to aircraft to change their speed, level or heading as needed or force emergency landing to pre-identified vertiports in urban area.

The ultimate objective of this very large scale demonstration (VLD) project is to deliver strategic and innovative technologies that can drive competitiveness and UAM growth using an impact-oriented approach and demonstrate the safe integration of UAM aircraft as additional airspace users.  
The results of the TINDAiR project help to:

  • refine the safety, performance, standardisation and regulatory requirements to enable UAM with specific focus on U-space U3 services identified in the U-space Blueprint and refined by CORUS, and,
  • unlock new and enhanced applications and mission types in high density and high complexity areas.
