U-space Workshop

On November 7th, 2023, the BCN Drone Center hosted a ground-breaking event about one of the most awaited advancements in the UAS industry, the U-space. The event marked a significant milestone in our journey toward advancing UAS integration into a shared airspace, and we are thrilled to have had the opportunity to collaborate with industry experts and stakeholders from across Europe.

The workshop kicked off with an immersive session dedicated to understanding the U-Space concept, architecture, and environment. Attendees gained a comprehensive knowledge of the fundamental principles guiding the integration of unmanned aerial systems into our airspace, laying the groundwork for informed discussions and future initiatives. A detailed exploration of current regulations governing drone usage and their evolution set the stage for picturing a future where new technologies play a key role in airspace management.

EAVA, the Estonian Aviation Academy, shared their experience with air traffic services involving UAS in Estonia. Their insights provided a real-world perspective on the challenges and opportunities associated with UAS integration, offering valuable lessons for stakeholders across the region.

One of the highlights of the workshop was the live demonstration of UTM software and remote identification technology, conducted by our team of engineers. Attendees witnessed firsthand the capabilities of cutting-edge solutions aimed at enhancing airspace management and ensuring safe and efficient UAS operations.

Throughout the workshop, attendees had the opportunity to engage with stakeholders and industry professionals from diverse backgrounds, fostering meaningful collaborations and exchange of ideas. The gathering served as a platform for forging new partnerships and driving collective progress toward realizing the full potential of U-Space.
