U-space is the European Commission’s vision for the safe, secure and efficient handling of drone traffic and a key enabler for the growing drone market to generate economic and societal benefits. To create a situation awareness capability and to allow safe BVLOS (beyond visual line of sight) operation of drones, U-space systems will ingest data from a range of sensors, including a portable ground-based radar system such as Ctrl+Sky Radar.
At Advanced Protection System, we have solutions that will enable effective control of airspace, and complies with all regulatory standards. APS is able to offer Ctrl+Sky System for effective drone monitoring and tracking.
Legal regulations and U-space monitoring
The Federal Aviation Administration has announced new airspace restrictions effective July 11, 2019 on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) attempting to fly over national security sensitive locations.
On 24 May 2019, the European Commission adopted EU rules to ensure increasing drone traffic across Europe is safe and secure for people on the ground and in the air.
The new rule would eventually clear the way for drones flying over people and beyond the line-of-sight of their operators.
The Council of Ministers approved a Royal Decree regulating the civil use of drones.
In 2017 alone almost 700 thousand drones were registered in the United States. This year Americans will spend tens of millions of dollars on safety systems related to drone traffic.
APS has been invited to participate in tests under Emergency Operations Airspace Management System, a project of the Government of Canada.
Chinese civil aviation industry insiders have called for tighter regulation on illegal drone flights, as the country has become the world’s largest manufacturer of consumer drones.
