SESAR calls for Remotely Piloted Air System demonstration activities

The SJU launched a Call for Proposal to select and co-finance around 10 projects offering SESAR integrated remotely piloted air system (RPAS) demonstration activities.
The purpose of this call for proposals is to select a number of ‘Demonstration Activities’ Projects, including integrated pre-operational flight trials activities, (the “Demonstration Projects”), which shall aim at:

  • demonstrating how to integrate RPAS into non-segregated airspace in a multi-aircraft and manned flight environment, in order to explore the feasibility of integration with the wider aviation community by 2016;
  • focusing on concrete results filling the operational and technical gaps identified for RPAS integration into non-segregated airspace; and
  • capitalising on the SESAR delivery approach by providing synergies, risk andopportunities, with the overall SESAR programme.

The Demonstration Activities shall:

  • be relevant at European scale;
  • be performed in European Union and/or Eurocontrol member States;
  • cover various types and sizes of RPAS, and
  • be performed between the third quarter 2013 and first quarter 2015
