TindAIR: Bringing Urban Air Mobility to Europe

TindAIRLaunched today, TindAIR is a new consortium funded by the European Union ́s Horizon 2020 research and innovation program tasked with working on wide scale demonstrations of urban air mobility applications.

TindAIR, which stands for Tactical INstrumental Deconfliction And in flight Resolution, falls under SESAR’s U-Space efforts, developing unmanned traffic management systems for integration of drones into the airspace.   The consortium is among the first dedicated to looking at the integration of passenger drones into the airspace – a step forward for the hot urban air mobility (UAM) sector.
