The INSuRE Project is one of nine integrated RPAS Demonstration projects that have been selected for co-financing by the SESAR Joint Undertaking (SESAR JU), which coordinates the SESAR (Single European Sky ATM Research) programme. SESAR in-flight demonstrations show, on a large scale, the benefits of the programme in day-to-day operations and build confidence in the SESAR solutions amongst the ATM community.
The purpose of INSuRE is to address and demonstrate the:
- operational management of one rotary wing RPA, piloted from a fixed station on the ground, evaluating its interaction with other vehicles in a non-segregated airspace;
- operational aspects in implementing nominal ATCO procedures;
- safety aspects to allow safe integration in controlled airspaces;
- human factor aspects addressing both the pilot’s and the ATCO’s workload and reactions.
The INSuRE Project encompasses a set of validation and demonstration activities addressing the integration of RPAS (Remotely Piloted Air Systems) into non-segregated airspace.
Ingegneria Dei Sistemi S.p.A. (IDS), Air Navigation Services of the Czech Republic (ANS CR) and Sistemi Dinamici S.p.A. (SD) are the members of the INSuRE Consortium which was awarded the co-financing of the INSuRE Project.
INSuRE has been running since its Kick Off, held in Rome on 16th October 2013.
