Deployment Scenario Title

U-space U3 — advanced services

Deployment Scenario Description U-space U3 — advanced services: this deployment scenario will build on the experience gained in U2 and will unlock new and enhanced applications and mission types in high-density and high-complexity areas. New technologies, automated detect and avoid (DAA) functionalities and more reliable means of communication, including V2X ( ), will enable a significant increase in operations in all environments and will reinforce interfaces with ATM/ATC and manned aviation. This is where the most significant growth in drone operations is expected to occur, especially in urban areas, with the initiation of new types of operations, such as air urban mobility.
The U-space advanced services will include at minimum the following: dynamic geo-fencing, collaborative interface with ATC, tactical deconfliction and dynamic capacity management.
