The European Solution for E-GNSS U-Space Service (SUGUS) project is inviting respondents to participate in a survey to identify and analyse needs to achieve safe drone integration. The survey is available until 15 May 2020 at: https://projectsugus.eu/survey/
Results of the survey will help to define a new EGNSS-based Application Programming Interface (API) and contribute to the development of drone standardisation and regulation.
SUGUS is an 18-month EUR485,000 European Commission project to promote European GNSS services (EGNOS and Galileo) for the effective and safe integration of drones in the airspace. Among objectives, SUGUS aims to demonstrate the benefits for drone operations of measures implemented at service-provision level, and the new EGNSS API to be implemented in the project. These benefits will include the mitigation of operating risks, improvement of preparation processes and clearance of the operator’s mission. The measures are expected to ease future urban aerial mobility (UAM) operations, such as aero taxis or parcel delivery. As the first step in this endeavour, SUGUS is carrying out the present survey to identify, capture and understand the U-space stakeholders’ needs and improve the user experience of E-GNSS in complex operations and built-up areas.
