Austria Integrates Drones and Air Taxis GOF 2.0
Project GOF 2.0 Integrated Urban Airspace is designed to demonstrate how drone traffic and air taxis can be succesfully integrated with manned aircraft in Europe. A series of test flights in Austria last month marked a milestone for the project, highlighting the need for integration between drone traffic control systems and air traffic control.
The project involves 15 partners from the research community and the drone and manned aviation industries, working to ensure interoperability and enable secure (data) communication between airborne and ground-based systems. “This creates a “system of systems” that combines classic air traffic management and new and improved drone-specific services,” says the press release.
