Altitude Angel is to join the Swiss civil aviation authority (FOCA) development programme to establish a U-Space regulatory framework.
FOCA established the Swiss U-Space Implementation (SUSI) platform and invited businesses from across the globe to help advance its understanding and regulatory model around the integration of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the airspace. Skyguide, the Swiss ANSP, is commissioned to implement the applicable legislation and to develop and implement the FIMS (flight information management system). Skyguide will provide different FIMS functionalities and interfaces over time in accordance to the overall SUSI project.
Altitude Angel will participate in SUSI in three of the defined categories:
- U-Space Service Providers
- Supplemental Data Service Providers
- Technology Providers
SUSI is just one of a number of projects globally Altitude Angel is engaged with which look to address this subject, from leadership roles at EUROCAE within Working Group 105 and GUTMA, to active participation in ICAO RPAS Panel and S-UAS Advisory Groups, the European Commission, EASA, Eurocontrol, SESAR JU and national activities.
