The Department of Airspace Control (DECEA) is inviting manufacturers, companies and specialists working in the field of unmanned aircraft (UAS) to contribute, with information and suggestions, for the integration of this equipment into air operations . The objective is for participants to present their demands for future technologies and regulations, actively participating in the evolution of drone traffic management in Brazil.
Interested organizations should visit the Airspace Control Institute (ICEA) page for more information on requirements, deadlines and procedures. Memorandums of understanding and Confidentiality Agreements will be signed to ensure the protection of sensitive information provided by participants.
“These agreements aim to establish a secure environment for sharing knowledge, technologies and data, thus boosting effective collaboration between partners. This is an opportunity for companies and specialists to contribute to the advancement of technology and UAS regulation, positively impacting the aerospace industry and society as a whole,” said Major Rodrigo Gonzalez Martins de Magalhães, head of the Aircraft Section Unmanned by DECEA.
The project schedule foresees a development marathon, simulation meetings, prototyping and real tests in ICEA’s laboratories. These tests will be conducted at different stages based on the Technology Readiness Level– TRL), evaluation scale of a company’s processes and technologies, ranging from 3 to 6 points. This wide range of technological maturity will allow a comprehensive assessment of proposed solutions, ranging from initial prototypes to more advanced systems, ready for implementation.
The project’s technical manager, First Lieutenant André Luiz Elias Melo, from ICEA, believes that this integration will have a significant impact on the development of unmanned aircraft management in Brazilian airspace. “It is believed that collaboration between the public and private sectors, together with academia, will result in innovative, safe and efficient solutions for integrating UAS into air operations,” he said.
