CORUS five exploratory research selected to deliver fifth version of U-space ConOps

The SESAR Joint Undertaking has announced the results of its most recent Exploratory Research call. Among the awarded projects is CORUS five, which will deliver the fifth version of the European U-space Concept of Operations.

Like its highly successful predecessors, CORUS and CORUS-XUAM, is a pan-European consortium led by Eurocontrol Innovation Hub. CORUS five will focus on the challenges of safely integrating Uncrewed Aerial Systems (UAS) into the same airspace as traditional aviation, addressing airspace that is not presently covered, e.g. above very low level and in the vicinity of controlled airports, with a particular focus on contingency management, risk quantification and flight rules.

The 13 project partners represent a range of U-space stakeholders and their suppliers, including ANSPs, drone operators, U-space service providers, future Common Information Service Providers, R&D and industry.

The project team will work for 24 months and then spend six additional months communicating and encouraging the exploitation of the work.
