A Key Enabler for Opening Airspace to Emerging Low-Altitude Operations
This work presents the U-space concept of operations (ConOps) based on three new types of airspace volume, called X, Y, and Z, and the relevant U-space services required for each. Additionally, the paper outlines the high-level U-space architecture using the European air traffic management architecture methodology, and proposes aircraft separation standards applicable to each volume to be used by the conflict detection and resolution services of U-space.
