TindAIR circle is a community of stakeholders interested by the results of the project: ANSPs, local authorities, citizen associations, drone operators & manufacturers, technology providers, USSPs and even more! This community is regularly informed about the latest achievements of the project, the demonstrations, the first results and will receive invitations to participate in our workshops.
Why joining the circle?
The participation is free and does not rise any obligation for stakeholders.
The Urban Air Mobility world is currently under construction and lots of outstanding projects are working on solutions to make it happen. We are proud to belong to this rich ecosystem and to cooperate with the following projects :
AiRMOUR is a EU-funded research and innovation project supporting sustainable air mobility via emergency medical services. The project focuses on the research and validation of novel concepts and solutions to make urban air mobility safe, secure, quiet and green – yet also more accessible, affordable and publicly accepted. Within the AiRMOUR project, personal air vehicles for doctors and medical supplies are validated in real-life demonstrations in 2023 in Stavanger, Helsinki and the region of Nord-Hessen, Germany. Also, simulations are planned to be carried out in various cities, such as in Luxembourg and Dubai.
The overall objective is to offer reliable Urban Air Mobility tools as well as advance the understanding of necessary near-future actions. Consequently, the main outputs of the AiRMOUR project are 1) UAM Toolbox for aviation and urban authorities, 2) UAM Guidebook for cities, operators and other stakeholders, and 3) UAM Training programme, in cooperation with Eurocontrol. The multi-disciplinary AiRMOUR consortium consists of partners from six European countries and has a total of 13 partners.
AMU-LED will test real UAM operations in a U-space eco-system for coordinated flights of several types of UAVs in different scenarios, use cases and applications (e.g. air taxis, emergency services, delivery of goods, surveys, etc.) for surveillance, logistics and mobility using air vehicles. At the end of the project, it will be demonstrated that any city or urban region (e.g. sparsely populated areas) may have the capability to offer UAM services and infrastructures taking into account its specificities, but in a standardized and safe form. Finally, this project will contribute significantly to define the needs and features of the Urban Air Vehicle (UAV) on-board equipment. A set of various experimentations will be performed in three counties in Europe (the UK, Spain and the Netherlands), towards the test of the drone platform itself but also the U-space relevant services to be deployed. The UAM eco-system needs to be holistically considered as a system of systems.
Acceptance, Safety and Sustainability Recommendations for Efficient Deployment of UAM. Urban Air Mobility (UAM) services will be more and more deployed in the near future. The ASSURED-UAM project aims to guarantee outstanding robustness in terms of safety, sustainability and acceptability of UAM. It will promote aviation best practices, standards, recommendations and organizational solutions to the administrative and legislative bodies. Authorities, policy makers and urban industry organizations will receive complete policy definition support in order to implement vertical transport with the horizontal urban space and peri-urban mobility systems. Moreover, the project will carry out the U-Space Air Traffic Management System, so that the introduction of unmanned UAM will be well integrated with organizational and policy framework. The project will look at scenarios for up to 10 use cases within 5, 10 and 15-years’ timeframe, make knowledge base and policy recommendations in 8 languages. It will create standards for products and processes as well as tools for exchange and learning of Urban Air Mobility, project development support and technical assistance. There will be UAM community integration and wide consultations, cooperation, and synergy with other projects, industry and user groups. ASSURED-UAM will provide support and give technical assistance for the implementation of vertical transport in three regions and cities: Górnośląsko-Zagłębiowska Metropolia (Upper-Silesian region in Poland), Bari (Italy) and the city of Porto (Portugal).
The CORUS-XUAM project proposes to demonstrate U-space solutions to support Urban Air Mobility (UAM) flight operations and develop the necessary operational procedures and requirements, considering safety, efficiency and social acceptability. The project will involve extensive consultation with the U-space stakeholders. The project will address the integration of drones into airspaces currently used by manned aircraft (Very Low Level and above), refining and identifying new U3/U4 services. Over the course of six demonstrations in different countries CORUS XUAM will examine the effectiveness of the proposed U-space procedures and services and consolidate them into the Concept of Operations. The demonstrations will involve flights by passenger-carrying vehicles, as well as large and small UAS, some with vertical take-off, some conventional, all of them being electric. They will occur in urban, suburban and rural areas, in controlled (airports, ports) and uncontrolled airspaces. They will involve different missions such as passenger transport, logistics, delivery, emergency response and surveillance. The demonstrations will use different U-space deployment architectures and explore technology’s state of the art. They will consider coordination and transfer between ATC and U-space, including interaction with human ATCOs and pilots. The demonstrations will combine flights by test vehicles with other traffic, and (virtually) transpose flight into the CTRs of major airports. Vertiport processes and procedures, separation, and data serviceswill also be demonstrated.
FF2020 is an EU-funded project aiming to become a global leader in solving current environmental, social economic and technological challenges by offering integrated, secure and convenient Urban Air Mobility (UAM) solutions. The project focuses on developing a state of the art geospatial UAM ecosystem, which includes governance, regulatory and interoperability frameworks; a geospatial digital infrastructure; and an Identity of Things scheme. By implementing and evaluating this innovative solution in 5 living labs across Europe, FF2020 will gain invaluable knowledge that will revolutionise the drone infrastructure, autonomous monitoring and last-mile delivery.
With the further enhancement of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) and air taxis in the rapidly growing drone market comes the need for the evolution of technologies and framework conditions for their safe coexistence with manned aircraft. The SESAR JU project GOF 2.0 Integrated Urban Airspace Validation will focus on the safe, secure, and sustainable integration of unmanned aerial vehicle and air taxi operations in urban airspace. The GOF 2.0 consortium, consisting of 15 scientific and commercial partners from the drone and aviation industry, will use its expertise and technology to ensure safe flight operations in all classes of airspace in order to provide all airspace users with fair and efficient access to the shared airspace. The GOF 2.0 project is one of several projects managed by the SESAR Joint Undertaking that are dedicated to U-space, the European Commission’s initiative for the safe and secure integration of drones into the airspace.
The vision of SAFIR-Med project is to demonstrate ways to achieve safe, sustainable, socially accepted and socially beneficial urban air mobility which will contribute to the EU healthcare system, by ensuring that future generations will continue to democratically have access to the best cure and care. Technologies of all partners will be leveraged to make use of the maximum number of U-Space services towards the highest possible operational safety level, including advanced Detect And Avoid U-space services. The demonstrations will enable involved cities to get acquainted with their role in U-space management and keep up with relevant regulatory changes in order to use UAM technology for the benefit of their citizens
