objectives of the project
Objectives of the Project

“The overall objectives of MIDCAS are to demonstrate the technology for a Sense & Avoid system for UAS to be able to fulfill the requirements for traffic separation and mid-air collision avoidance in non segregated airspace and, in close cooperation with European organizations, e.g. Eurocontrol, EUROCAE (European Organisation for Civil Aviation Equipment) and EASA (European Aviation Safety Agency), to provide the technical background for them to establish a Sense & Avoid standard. Transatlantic coordination will be conducted throughout the project with organizations such as the RTCA (Radio Technical Commission for Aeronautics) and FAA (the Federal Aviation Authority).”

(Press Release – 17th of June 2009)

objectives of the project1
Objectives of the Project

The project will deliver:

  • Support for progress on standards based on European knowledge coordinated with European stakeholders
  • A mid-air collision avoidance system functional design
  • Safety assessment based on extensive simulations supported by flight test validations
  • A Detect & Avoid system demonstrator for use in flight demonstrations
  • In-flight demonstration starting with manned aircraft followed by real UA flights during a total of four flight test campaigns with the intention to achieve final UA flights in non-segregated airspace
