ADACORSA is a European project (H2020-ECSEL-2019-2-RIA) that targets to strengthen the European drone industry and increase public and regulatory acceptance of BVLOS (beyond visual line-of-sight) drones, by demonstrating technologies for safe, reliable and secure drone operation in all situations and flight phases.
The project will drive research and development of components and systems for sensing, telecommunication and data processing along the electronics value-chain. Additionally, drone lead smart industries with high visibility and place for improvement will be developed which will pave the way for a higher public / industry acceptance of the drone technologies.
In particular, ADACORSA will deliver:
a) On the component level in order to reduce risk, time and costs, the project aims to adapt technologies from the automotive sector to the drone market.
b) On the system level, hardware and software for reliable sensor fusion and data analytics as well as technologies for secure and reliable drone communication.
c) On an architecture level, fail-operational drone control and investigation a pre-operational Flight Information Management System (FIMS).
Within the project, 35 physical as well as virtual demonstrators of BLVOS, long-range drone flight shall pave the way toward certifiable systems for future integration of drone operations.
CTG B.V. will develop an aerial unmanned vehicles identification and positioning system based on technologies for common aviation: ADS-B, Mode S transponder. In this way, this system will be compatible with current air traffic control systems providing accurate positioning and identification of the platform. Positioning will be based on signal correction by EGNOS and will allow all airspace users to know vehicle location, contributing to safety and serving as support for other on-board systems as Detect&Avoid equipment.
Project has started on the 01st of May 2020. The start was celebrated with a two day kick-of meeting taking place on June 3rd – 4th, 2020.
