10.20 – 10.40      
10.50 – 11.10 AZANS-EHang

Title: Next Generation UAV Operations in ATM

Speaker: Derrick Xiong

Abstract: AZANS together with EHang and ABRAHAM TECHNOLOGIES LTD joined to develop Next Generation UAV Control system which will merge UAV Command Control Centre and UAV Air Traffic Management integrated with ATC Automated System. New UAV Control Centre will implement various equipment to be hosted in ATM Artificial Intelligence at the Heydar Aliyev International Airport at Baku. The main objective of this project is collaboration in establishment of Command Control Centre at Heydar Aliyev International Airport to control flights of civil UAVs , automation of certification, permission and application for flight procedures. System will be fully integrated with live Airt Traffic Management system of Azerbaijan. State of Art 3D mapping functionality of EHang Drones to be integrated to AIM system of AZANS for generation of Digital Terrain Modules. Due to the frequent incidents of unauthorized flights of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) near the airports, an urgent need has arisen throughout the world to create an appropriate system for protecting these strategic facilities. Air traffic management (ATM) / unmanned aircraft system traffic management (UTM) solution enables a wide range of commercial and recreational drone operations to be safely integrated into everyday operations, including the runway of a major international airport.

13.50 – 14.10 DFS Aviation Services GmbH

Title: A Tool-based Evaluation of ED-87c Compliance

Speaker: Ashley Williams, DFS Aviation Services GmbH

Abstract: When implementing a new A-SMGCS or when renewing an existing system, one has to face the quality requirements specified by EUROCAE MASPS ED-87. Additionally, it is not uncommon that such verification has to be repeated several times during the implementation phase. It is also highly likely that system updates during the operational phase will require the repetition of the verification. Therefore, it becomes all the more important for customers and manufacturers of A-SMGCS to think about the verification of the compliance standards well in advance. Ashley Williams will speak about the new tool that DFS Aviation Services has developed and how it is applied in praxis to evaluate the compliance of an A-SMGCS with the ED-87c standards. 
14.20 – 15.10  ENAC

Title: The ENAC - Groupe ADP - Sopra Steria Research Chair on Drone Systems : A New Way to Explore Drone Iintegration into Airspace

Speaker: Yannick Jestin

Abstract: In the world of Unmanned Air Systems (UAS), the future is almost here; but it can, and must, be shaped still, by working on both the vehicles themselves and the organization of the airspace in which they will be deployed. Added to that, new trends keep emerging, pulling the future in different possible directions (Urban Air Mobility, driverless personal air vehicles, etc.). A study of ongoing efforts to shape the future of UAS shows that these efforts are almost always divided in two categories moving in parallel: work on the vehicle (trying to increase its Technology Readiness Level: its size, endurance, autonomy level, improve its software’s assurance level …); and work on the concept of operations (EASA, EUROCONTROL, SESAR, etc.). The Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (ENAC) – Groupe ADP – Sopra Steria Research Chair on Drone Systems is helping to bridge that gap, by providing inputs for both vehicle technology and the environment in which they operate. The Chair has a three-year-old background in Detect And Avoid and fault detection and management. Embedded in the ENAC’s Research Lab on Small UAS, it benefits from an environment rich in skill and testing facilities, providing research on topics such as Vertical Take Off and Landing fixed wing aircraft. Added to that, the Chair works on the development of UAS operations within the airport environment, for example for the inspection of radio navigation systems. As a result of this approach mixing both vehicle and environment, the Chair contributes to building some of the blocks of U-space.
15.20 – 15.40 DFS Aviation Services GmbH / Air Navigation Solutions Ltd.

Title: Safeguarding Aspects of UAV/RPAS Mitigations in ATM Environments

Speaker: Sarah Webb, Air Navigation Solutions Ltd.

Abstract: When Gatwick Airport was presented with multiple UAS infringements in December 2018, various detection equipment was brought on site. Sarah Webb will present on the complexity of the integration of such tools in a live ATM Operational Environment, the tailored application of safeguarding principles and the learnings of introducing systems into airfield environments with limited previous exposure to aviation related applications.
15.50 – 16.10 Rheinmetall Air Defence AG

Title: Drone Defence in the Airport Environment - Enabling Secure Airport Operations  

Speaker: Beat Benz

Recent incidents involving drones interrupting flight operations of airports Gatwick in the UK and Newark Liberty in the United States have caused significant discomfiture for passengers and financial damage for airlines and airport operators. These incidents have shown that in today’s world where drones are more and more present in various applications inside the private and economic domain, the management of airspace and in the last resort also drone defence must be regulated, sanctioned and finally executed. Providing a complete local air picture and classification of cooperative and non-cooperative drones is no longer a desirable capability, it has become an absolute must in order to secure and sustain daily airport operations. Concept of Operations which can address the needs of multiple agencies will drive the future developments of system architecture. Rheinmetall Air Defence and Radar System has developed drone defence capabilities for the civilian environment. Our goal is to contribute with our long lasting expertise in dealing with small and smallest aerial vehicles to provide a drone defence in the airport environment, enabling secure airport operations.

 11.20 – 11.40 DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH

Title: The Emerging UTM System at DFS

Speaker: Ralf Heidger, DFS 

Over the course of the last year, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung and Deutsche Telekom have been working on prototyping UTM in Germany by using UAS detection with “Hook-on devices” and other means of surveillance. A cloud-based environment has been set up using a UTM framework, a staged cloud infrastructure, the DFS multisensor fusion tracker PHOENIX and a number of mobile telecommunication devices. The setup allows cooperative UAS surveillance all over the country, in combination with the surveillance of manned aviation. This functionality is combined with workflows of mission definition, validation, flight permission processing, and post-flight functions like logbook maintenance. Currently the cooperation between UTM systems and drone detection systems (DDS) for uncooperative UAS are being tested. Ralf Heidger will present the architecture, use cases and trial results of this project, and outline the future roadmap in Germany.
 11.50 – 12.10 ENAIRE

Title: Standardisation of Fast Time Simulation Models for ATC Capacity Determination

Speaker: Manuel Dorado

ENAIRE uses Fast Time Simulation models (FTS) to study ATC capacity since 1992. Hundreds of studies were carried out to support decision making on new ATC sectors, runways, concepts, enablers which may affect ATC capacity. In 2012 FTS met a breaking point: FTS methodologies for capacity determination were fixed, presented to AESA (Spanish Aviation Safety Agency) and settled as standards. From that moment on, any ATC enhancement dealing with capacity is assessed within a standard procedure using both experts boards and standardized FTS methodologies, such as SCOPE and PICAP.
