Objectives

Aims to establish a pre-operational flight information management system (FIMS) with an architecture capable of integrating existing commercial-off-the-shelf UTM components. The capabilities of the FIMS will be demonstrated in different live cases representing the most typical visual line of sight (VLOS) and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) missions:

  • International parcel delivery between Helsinki and Tallinn
  • Dense urban drone fleet operations in Helsinki with Police intervention
  • Dense urban drone fleet operations in Tallinn in controlled airspace
  • 100km+ BVLOS multisensory inspection flights in forestry and utility inspection
  • Co-operation with general aviation and recreational users at uncontrolled airport
  • Maritime traffic surveillance combined with search-and-rescue over Gulf of Finland
  • Drone Taxi flight from Helsinki-Vantaa airport to Helsinki.
