Metropolis 2: A unified approach to airspace design and separation management for U-space

Project description

Safe and efficient sharing of airspace with unmanned vehicles over European cities

The number and type of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) continues to increase. This creates a need to ensure safe, efficient and secure access to airspace for these large numbers of drones and other UAS. U-space was defined in 2017 as an enabling framework of services and procedures relying on sophisticated digitalisation and automation of functions. The EU-funded Metropolis 2 project will address the autonomy required to enable shared and not separate airspace for these vehicles in highly dense urban areas. Metropolis 2 will develop a unified approach to airspace rules as well as flight planning and separation management approaches for safe and efficient U-space operations over Europe's cities.
