Providing separation minima and methods to increase safety and efficiency in the U-Space
The EU-funded BUBBLES project aims at defining separation minima and methods to UAS flying in the VLL SES (below 150 m) to improve the overall performance and safety therein. It will develop algorithms to compute the collision probability between UAS using separation minima to keep it under acceptable levels. Moreover, the project will investigate how AI can contribute to dynamically managing these minima using different separation methods and agents (from centralised strategic deconfliction to distributed self-separation). BUBBLES will follow an operation centric, risk-based approach, assigning separation minima and methods depending on the UAS ConOps and the available U-Space services. BUBBLES will also extend the concept of Performance Based CNS to the UAS operations to draft safety and performance requirements.
