RPASInAir

Integrazione dei Sistemi Aeromobili a Pilotaggio Remoto nello spazio aereo non segregato per servizi civili innovativi

Sector

Aeronautics

Product/Objective

The RPASinAir project has the strategic objective of developing the use of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and innovative sensors connected to airborne, satellite or public archive systems, which are capable of reporting critical events and of helping to prevent and manage emergencies (floods, landslides, earthquakes, industrial accidents).

Project Summary

The project strengthens the mission of supporting the development of the aerospace industry entrusted to Taranto-Grottaglie airport in the National Airport Plan approved by the Italian Ministry of Transport in 2016.

Innovation

Development of advanced features of traffic control applications (ATC) for the integrated management of air traffic with and without pilot on board. Creation of a center for the collection, management and processing of Earth Observation data in an integrated logic with other data sources (satellites, ...) capable of processing the data acquired by the SAPR in real-time or near real-time and providing services monitoring of the territory, risk prevention and emergency management.
Development of new sensors designed to detect sources of risk for the territory: hydrogeological risk, cryospheric risk and risk related to the presence of dust (volcanic or from fires) in the atmosphere.
Testing and demonstration of the systems developed in the project (SE, ATM, applications, sensors) in laboratory and real environments with the execution of missions with RPAS to demonstrate the achievement of the expected performances.

ES Role

EnginSoft was involved in developing a methodology to manage the paths of Remote Piloted Aircraft Systems with respect to unforeseen events.
