The Enhanced Automation for U-space/ATM integration (EALU-AER) project has received a three-year grant from the European Commission’s Connecting Europe Facility as part of the SESAR 3 Joint Undertaking Digital Sky Demonstrator programme.
The ecosystem’s engineering work will be conducted in Ireland and France in conjunction with Future Mobility Campus Ireland, Avtrain, Irish Aviation Authority, Shannon Airport, Manna Drone Delivery and Deep Blue. These companies from France, Ireland and Italy have come together with Collins as the EALU-AER consortium to support unmanned aviation and U-Space capabilities to build the future of air-mobility. Those capabilities then will be delivered through SESAR 3 and further collaborative efforts in Europe.
Collins Aerospace will work to build an end-to-end ecosystem at a vertiport in Shannon that supports safe operations of unmanned flight. The new ecosystem will leverage a variety of products from across the Collins Aerospace portfolios to help both conventional and unmanned aircraft safely integrate their operations.
