Five SESAR Joint Undertaking research projects addressing Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) participated in SESAR Innovation Days 2021 in early December.
The RPAS Projects Collaboration Panel was formed in January 2021 to coordinate research activities, generate synergies, exchange and discuss results, with the broader scope of building a common concept that supports rule makers, standardization bodies, and the industry in decision making and the generation of harmonized standards.
The panel presented a joint video to illustrate to the public the aims of the panel and show examples of synergies among the projects. Furthermore, it presented each partner involved project through a dedicated concept image.
The panel is composed of representatives of the SESAR Exploratory Research projects URClearED, INVIRCAT and SAFELAND, as well as the Industrial Research project PJ13-W2 ERICA and the Very Large Demonstration project CORUS-XUAM.
This year was the 11th edition of SESAR Innovation Days (SIDs), the main vehicle for SESAR Joint Undertaking to share progress and disseminate exploratory research results, on whom the SIDs focus explicitly. It has been organised annually since 2011 and has now become a landmark event in the European Aviation research domain.
The 2021 edition was held virtually, from the 7th to the 9th of December. This edition was based on an open call, soliciting contributions from the Air Traffic Management (ATM) research community. Further opportunities have been provided to learn about interesting projects and exchange experiences, thanks to exhibitions and posters, keynotes and virtual networking events.
