On 2 September 2021, the 11th EASN International Conference hosted the virtual session “Remotely piloted aircraft systems: SESAR Joint Undertaking”, dedicated to INVIRCAT, URClearED, CORUS-XUAM, PJ13 ERICA and SAFELAND projects. The session consisted of presentations followed by a round table chaired by SESAR Joint Undertaking program manager, Ms. Nil Agacdiken.


Our colleague Florian Löhr from DLR presented our concept of operation for the efficient integration of IFR RPAS into the TMA. After a brief introduction to the INVIRCAT project and to its main objectives, the presentation focussed on:

  • the key assumptions for RPAS integrations

  • the interfaces taken into account by the project, with a special focus on communication and C2 link

  • description of the operations and of the operational challenges enviaged for the different roles and stakeholders in different nominla and non nominal conditions

  • the validation activities planned in the project


The INVIRCAT initial concept is released as a public deliverable and can be found here. The presentation given during the conference is also available and can be found here.
