Partners: NLR


One of the main use cases of the work performed in the ADACORSA project is the ability to perform Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) flight operations by using Detect and Avoid (DAA) system solutions developed in this project. Using the NLR Detect and Avoid flying testbed, selected components developed in SC3 and SC5 will be integrated into the flying testbed to perform a verification test flight campaign. The requirements and flight test cards will be drafted in close cooperation with the development partners of the selected components (NXP and TTTech). The operational scenarios will be chosen taking into account the different available U-space concept of operations (ConOps) results as produced by the SESAR CORUS project and other entities working on these drone ConOps. In preparation of the flight test campaign a Specific Operational Risk Analysis (SORA) will be performed. The goal of the test flight campaign is to: 1. verify the correct functioning of the developed selected components (from SC3 and SC5); 2. identify necessary and/or desired improvements for these components and/or the system (architecture); 3. evaluate functional, technical and certification requirements and identify possible issues; 4. demonstrate safe navigation through airspace with this system while encountering other (manned) aircraft. The flight tests will be performed at the Netherlands RPAS Test Centre (NRTC) operated by NLR at its Marknesse facilities. The activities will be concluded by an end demonstration flight with the tested system for the Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) use case substantiation.
