Objectives

The EUREKA project aims at enabling the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) accommodation (SESAR3 R&I need: Enabling UAM) in all types of airspace (R&I need: support the development of the U-space regulatory framework and required standards) with a focus on the vertiports operations.
Main airports players and U-space/UAM developers team up under the leadership of EUROCONTROL to move the lines and develop the enabling vertiport solutions. The project outcomes will trigger a major update of the U-space/UAM operational concept with new procedures and tools dedicated to vertiport integration into the airspace.
The EUREKA project will develop the complete arrival, departure and turnaround process for vertiports. The proposed four (4) SESAR Solutions at TRL7. These solutions are essential elements of a process required for integration of vertiports operations into the airspace:
• Solution 1: Arrival/ departure to/ from vertiport including route and trajectory
• Solution 2: Vertiport collaborative traffic management
• Solution 3: Vertiport disruption and emergency management
• Solution 4: Vertiport Network Flow, Capacity & Operational Management
The EUREKA project will enable widely accepted solutions that relate to operational procedures and tools usable as a deployable blueprint in all EASA Members States (and possibly beyond) by the end of the project.
The proposed solutions will develop procedures and systems consistent with the regulation when possible and that go even beyond as these solutions will be for manned and unmanned VTOL aircraft, and not only for UAV.
The ultimate objective is to deliver EUREKA outcomes in a way Europe can (re)use its operational procedures, performance and safety requirements, validation results, recommendations for regulation/standardisation and any information that will accelerate and harmonize the development of UAM, VTOL operations and vertiport development across Europe.
