The Air Mobility Initiative U-Space (AMIUS) project is establishing the first integrated Bavarian U-Space as its overarching goal. AMIUS is part of the Air Mobility Initiative (AMI), which is funded by the Free State of Bavaria and the Federal Republic of Germany and initiates a number of research projects.
AMIUS is investigating how a U-space based on digital services can integrate today’s air traffic, including its processes and technologies, with future deployment scenarios of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and eVTOLs (electric Vertical Take-Off and Landing aircraft) in a common airspace.
For this purpose, the necessary air traffic management functions for safe, integrated and efficient operation are provided and demonstrated by the U-space services – including network identification service, geo-awareness, UAS flight permit service and traffic information service – defined by EASA.
In order to guarantee the safe and efficient integrated operation of UAS, eVTOLs and general aviation in the future, new traffic concepts are required. The existing airspace management must be supplemented by an integrated UTM and thus expanded by the dimension of the previously uncontrolled airspace.
The AMIUS project is also investigating how the data flow between the airspace users involved and the storage of relevant data can be secured against unauthorized external interference by various measures.
The project started in January 2022 and is due to end in December 2024.
