Second CORUS U-space workshop
28th of June, 2018
ENACToulouse , France
As part of our community, we welcome your thoughts and input on a number of questions that will guide our work. CORUS will develop and write a concept of operations for U-Space, the system for control of drones in European VLL airspace. This will also include the airspace around airports.
Starting from the U-Space blueprint and from the ATM Master Plan update, the project will produce detailed definitions of the services necessary for VLL drone operations over the next two years. An initial architecture description will also be proposed.
The services will be defined in a way that shows how they can and should be used together to enable safe drone operations while balancing the needs of the drone sector with those of society as a whole.
CORUS is a Horizon 2020 project, established within the context of SESAR. The project involves nine partner organizations; DFS, DLR, DSNA, ENAV, EUROCONTROL (leading), HEMAV, NATS, Unifly and UPC. It is guided by an Advisory Board of 22 members, and a growing ‘U-space Community Network’ of stakeholders. The project also communicates and cooperates with other drone-related projects looking at specific technologies.
CORUS seeks to build a consensus and draw on information and experiences already available. The project activity is centered on 3 workshops that will be held with a wide base of stakeholders, allowing CORUS to build, refine and validate its concept of operations. The workshops are planned to be held in January 2018, June 2018 and January 2019.
Do not hesitate to forward this invitation to colleagues who may also be interested in joining the UCN and/or the workshop. In order to better organise the event and the logistics, could we please ask you to confirm your intention to attend the Workshop via this link.
