The EuroDRONE demonstration, along with several similar projects around the EU, aims to examine the applicability of different concepts, technologies and architectures, to promote the cooperation of the relevant stakeholders and to identify needs, problems, misconceptions that need to be addressed before U-Space can be successfully realised. The EuroDRONE UTM architecture is based on the DronSystems patent pending UTM system, called DroNav, which is made of cloud software (DroNav) and hardware Mission Director (DronAssistant) to be installed on the drones to be used. DroNaV is a Highly Automated Air Traffic Management (ATM) System for Small UAVs Operating at Low Altitudes. As required by the SESAR call, EuroDRONE, based on the DroNaV architecture and capabilities, is designed for the SESAR call/requirements as a universal platform, connecting various stakeholders (operators, regulators, law enforcement agencies, product developers) and providing interoperability of different systems in a unified environment. Based on the requirements set in the SESAR U-Space Call, EuroDRONE covers multiple aspects of the U-Space, including U1, U2 and U3. The EuroDRONE objective is to develop, mature and qualify U-Space functionalities as provided by SESAR JU/CFP and test them in Greece with the support of the Hellenic National Civil Aviation Authority (ΥΠΑ/CAA) the largest logistics industrial actor in the south east of Europe, Hellenic Post (ΕΛΤΑ), two leading UAV/UTM SMEs from the UK and Spain DronSystems and Aslogic and two academic institutions with significant experience in testing UAVs autonomously in UTM related practical experiments, Cranfield University and University of Patras.
