Get ready for a new era in aviation with automated Unmanned Traffic Management and Urban Air Mobility infrastructure.
Integrating manned and unmanned aviation via U-Space requires several phases of preparation. Also, operations within the Certified Category will make passenger and cargo transportation possible in the near future. Our regulatory and operational experts can help you prepare and implement U-Space Airspace and Urban Air Mobility operations.
Coordination Mechanism & Airspace Risk Assessment
U-Space airspace can be designated for various reasons, such as safety, security, privacy or environmental concerns. As a competent authority you are responsible for the coordination mechanism that ensures the establishment, efficient operation and safety monitoring of the airspace and provided services therein.
The planning phase of the coordination mechanism includes a comprehensive stakeholder analysis and airspace risk assessment, taking into account the risks in the air and on the ground. With our experience in both manned and unmanned operations, we can help you put in place the coordination mechanism and perform required stakeholder analysis and risk assessment.
CIS & USSP Certification
To become a U-space service provider (USSP) or common information service (CIS) provider, you need to set up a robust management system and have a solid business plan. Furthermore, a security management system and occurrence reporting system must be developed, as well as an operations manual including a contingency and emergency response plan. Together with our partners we can help you set up the required documentation, train your personnel and implement all systems and processes.
As a competent authority, you must be able to perform the certification of potential USSP and CIS, maintain oversight and enforce safety where necessary. To do this, you will need technical and operational capacity and expertise. We can help you set up an efficient and compliant certification process, oversight mechanism and enforcement processes and train your personnel to perform these tasks.
U-space Architecture & Technical Standards
To establish U-space airspace as a competent authority, you need to have a thorough understanding of mandatory and optional services that can be delivered within the airspace, the various architectures that can be set up and the decisions that need to be made on the possible governance and finance models.
As a USSP you will need to meet requirements regarding the interface with the CIS and/or ATS provider(s). Also, you need to fulfil requirements for data and information sharing and use specific information exchange models and protocols. If you are a civil aviation authority, ANSP or potential USSP or CIS, we can support you with our technical know how, operational experience and legal expertise.
