Demand and Capacity Optimisation in U-space

Project description

Managing drone traffic

In recent years, the drone industry has grown exponentially. Therefore, rules need to be defined as regards drone traffic management. The EU-funded DACUS project proposes to develop a service-oriented demand and capacity balancing (DCB) process. First, the project will design all the steps of the process, from the strategic to the tactical phase. Second, it will create innovative service algorithms and enable models and technologies as functional blocks of the DCB process. Third, it will define a structure for very low level (VLL) airspace and a set of airspace rules. Fourth, it will find the optimal balance between on-board separation intelligence and U-space separation service intelligence. Eventually, DACUS will refine communication, navigation and surveillance (CNS) requirements.
