AMU-LED’s Concept of Operations (ConOps) targets a transitional mid-term (2025-2030), when the first piloted air-taxis will start operating in cities within U-space airspaces with most U1-U2 services deployed. AMU-LED assumes that current U-space responsibilities and services will have to be extended to cope with the particularities of the missions and business cases that are specific Read more about AMU-LED UAM Concept of Operations[…]
Research into Urban Air Mobility is accelerating its uptake in Europe. AMU-LED for instance is looking into the capabilities of U-space to enable Urban Air Mobility – answering questions related to the maturity of concepts and technology, what are the challenges, and what needs to be done to implement this new form of mobility. One Read more about Smart cities – the biggest allies (or antagonists) of UAM[…]
U-space is a set of new services relying on a high level of digitalisation and automation of functions and specific procedures designed to support safe, efficient and secure access to airspace for large numbers of drones. UAM refers to an ecosystem that enables on-demand, highly automated, passenger or cargo-carrying air transport services with particular reference Read more about Looking for medium density in UAM operations[…]

Air taxis, cargo delivery drones or unmanned systems for emergencies are just some of the services on the horizon with the advent of urban air mobility (UAM). AMU-LED, a newly started SESAR U-space demonstration project aims to trial a range of these mobility services over the next two years in a number of cities across Read more about SESAR U-space partners launch smart city air mobility trials[…]
