"Unmanned Freight Operations" – Presented by Annette Temme, German Aerospace Center

As one of several activities within DLR dealing with unmanned aircraft, the internal DLR project Unmanned Freight Operations (UFO) addresses the future operation of unmanned freight aircraft as an addition to today’s transport system. Led by DLR’s Institute of Flight Guidance, the objective of the project is to develop and validate a concept for unmanned freight operations. In line with the “Concept of Operations for Drones” presented by EASA, the UFO project focusses on the proposed “certified” category of aircraft. Air space integration, roles and tasks of actors, communication requirements and support of actors are subject of the project.
