The first Pilot exercises will be performed to evaluate and demonstrate the first release of the ALADDIN platform (beta release). As representative of ‘open-field’ use case, these experiments will take place in ATLAS test centre, in Villacarrillo, Jaen, Spain.
The ATLAS airport and test flight centre, operated by FADA-CATEC, is specially designed for light and small UAS/RPAS operations. It counts around 1000 square kilometers of segregated airspace until 5000 ft. available jointly with a main runaway of 600 m and auxiliary one of 400 m. Telemetry and primary surveillance radar are available along with additional facilities and full support to operations, including management of flight permits for the coordination of flight operations, and interactions with Civil Aviation Authorities in Spain. With a suited orography and climatology enabling more than 300 days a year for operations, this is an ideal location for technology validation and experimental testing in ALADDIN project.
As representative of ‘urban’ use case a second test site may be selected in an urban environment close to the ATLAS centre.
In Pilot 2 you find a description of the second Pilot exercises to evaluate and demonstrate the final release of the ALADDIN platform.
