SESAR U-space webinar sessions

SESAR JU members and partners recently brought to a close two years of research and development (R&D) on how to integrate safely and securely drones across Europe, within the framework of U-space, an initiative by the European Commission. Organised within the framework of the SESAR Digital Academy, these sessions will present the work of some of these projects addressing the concept of operations for U-space, critical communications, surveillance and tracking, information management and exchange, detect and avoid, and CNS technologies.
