Defending airports from rogue drone operations
Drone incursions pose a growing threat for airport operations, and aviation experts are preparing new procedures and technologies to address their impact. The question is how to respond to non-authorised drones flying within airport restricted areas. The EU-funded ASPRID project is pooling knowledge and resources of seven European entities from airport infrastructure and air navigation services operators, public research establishments and SMEs. ASPRID is part of the SESAR research and innovation programme, the technological pillar of Europe’s Single European Sky initiative, coordinating EU research and development activities in air traffic management. The project aims to develop a service-oriented operational concept and system architecture to protect airport operations from unwanted drones and define regulations and procedures to support it.
