U-Space: The drone map of the future


The FOCA is currently working on the implementation of the U-Space (UTM) programme, which aims to integrate drones safely into the airspace and allow manned and unmanned aviation to coexist. A number of different digital services form the basis of U-Space. A service which provides real-time information about current area restrictions will also likely be a component of U-Space in the future.
