Starting ICARUS Concept definition
The first phase is dedicated to the definition of Concept: State-of-art analysis, GNSS Navigation Requirements, currently available digital Terrain Model, Ground obstacles data bases, coordination with other SESAR JU relevant projects.
Output: Definition of Concept through 5 relevant use cases, identification of gaps
We will propose a web survey as a tool to engage the community and understand users’ requirements. The community acceptance of a GNSS based altimetry measurement system will be the main aspect.

Output: survey results.
Prototype Service Design
The architecture of the prototype service will be defined, considering the Concept definition and the gaps identified. A prototype service will be implemented in the form of an Application Program Interface for two EU U-space service providers.
Output: Design and implementation of a Prototype service for the validation phase.
Some elements of the selected use cases will be simulated through the involvement of simulation platforms and digital tools. This is a testing phase dedicated to upgrade the available simulation platforms and interface ICARUS prototype service (U-space service providers, Tablet App, General Aviation Cockpit simulator)
Output: Integrated simulation SW environment
Some elements of the selected use cases will be moved from the simulation environment to a real operation scenario. In particular drones using the new GNSS geodetic altitude datum will be used to validate the concept and verify the navigation requirements identified.
Output: GNSS based altimetry validation report
End of project
Finalization of the CONOPS proposed with reference to the UAS-UAS navigation requirements, Ground obstacles clearance and UAS-Manned Aircrafts operational procedures. Proposal of a new U3 U-space service aimed at altitude translation.
Output: Final CONOPS, Proposal for standardization of the Common Altitude Reference System

European vision for the U-space aims to enable complex drone operations with a high degree of automation to happen in all types of operational environments, particularly in an urban context. When fully deployed, a wide range of drone missions that are currently being restricted will be possible thanks to a sustainable and robust European ecosystem that is globally interoperable.
