Proving Operations of Drones with Initial UTM (PODIUM)

Charlotte

Integra Aerial Services has been selected for the Horizon 2020 SESAR PODIUM project aiming at developing cutting-edge technology that ensures safe, secure and efficient handling of drone traffic in the aviation environment.

PODIUM will perform four complementary large-scale demonstrations – with over 185 drone test flights and many more opportunity flights – at Odense in Denmark, Bretigny and Toulouse in France, and Eelde in the Netherlands. Unmanned traffic management solutions will be demonstrated for visual line of sight (VLOS) and beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) drone flights. The scope covers very low level operations in rural and urban areas, in the vicinity of airports, in uncontrolled and controlled airspace, and in mixed environments with manned aviation.
