As George Bernard Shaw once said “Both the optimists and the pessimists contribute to the society. The optimist invents the aeroplane, and the pessimist the parachute”. All over the world, numerous initiatives and demonstrations have shown the multiple benefits of drone operations, that is the optimists’ work. Now the pessimists are also at work to prevent malicious use of drones.
MM Sharples and Jestin held a conference in ENAC Toulouse premises to give an overview on the Chair activities and ongoing projects. This event gathered students, ENAC staff, researchers, professionnals, and we’ve had the opportunity to host members from SESAR-JU and the Japan UAS Industrial Developement Association.

Inserting UAVs in non segregated airspace: review, ongoing projects and perspectives
The French Civil Aviation University (ENAC) invite you to attend to a conference taking place during the International Paris Air Show 2017 taking place in Le Bourget.
date of the conference: thursday june the 22th 2017, from 16:00 to 17:00 (Forum Avion des métiers).
Founded in june 2015, the « ENGIE Ineo – Groupe ADP – SAFRAN RPAS Chair », it the first of its kind to tackle the drones insertion in airspace challenges, aiming at the development of procedures and standards allowing the operation of drone systems, and paving the way to novel civil uses of drones in a national and international context.
M. Yannick Jestin, holder of the Chair and ENAC’s drone research program manager will describe the progress of the projects. This conference will be an opportunity to foster exchanges between players of this emerging sector.
This conference is open to all, and will be held in french. If you wish to attend, please notify firstname.lastname@example.org – 06 51 53 57 21 before june the 21st
The integration of large drones flying under Instrument Fllight Rules in controlled airspaces is a complex task, yet a desirable objective. However, to benefit from the ATC, the Remote Pilote needs to communicate properly with the ATCOs. And that is where latency messes everything up.
Unlike other ACASs (ACAS II, ACAS X), ACAS Xu can provide both vertical and horizontal resolutions. The challenge is: how to choose between vertical and horizontal maneuvers? The choice is done by a module called Nucleus. However, little information on what Nucleus might be was publicly available until last September.
