Aerobits Miniature ADS-B Technology Developed for U-Space Integration

Published: 09 Apr 2018

Aerobits, a developer of miniature ADS-B technology for small UAS, has been working in cooperation with DroneRadar and Flytech-UAV to create and test the necessary infrastructure to make drone use safe and secure in the urban airspace (U-Space).

The European Commission has committed to develop a new generation European air traffic management system that integrates drone use in low-level airspace. One requirement of this, is that the U-Space should be automated – the system will provide information for highly automated or autonomous drones to fly safely and avoid obstacles or collisions. The newly-created service will be used for autonomous infrastructure monitoring and safe integration of drone flights with airliners and helicopters.

Aerobits’ miniature ADS-B technology is integral to the safe integration of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in civilian airspace; ADS-B In provides collision avoidance capabilities, with ADS-B Out for emergencies only.
