Future Air Mobility, CIRA awarded at Enav Thinking Cup 2022<img alt="" src="" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />à-aerea-del-futuro-il-cira-premiato-all’enav-thinking-cup-2022/Future Air Mobility, CIRA awarded at Enav Thinking Cup 2022Future Air Mobility, CIRA awarded at Enav Thinking Cup 2022<p></p><p style="text-align:justify;">The project proposed by CIRA and the Parthenope University of Naples has got important awards at the national competition Thinking Cup 2022, the first initiative organized by ENAV (National Agency for Flight Assistance) with the aim of identifying innovative ideas and solutions for the future air mobility and promoting cooperation between all companies in the Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) fields.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">Matured as part of a joint PhD thesis, developed by Aniello Menichino of the Air Traffic Efficiency Unit of CIRA and Gennaro Ariante of the Parthenope University, under the supervision of their tutors Vittorio Di Vito (CIRA) and Giuseppe del Core (Parthenope University), the proposed project, "Onboard and onground obstacle detection system for UAS operations", got third place in the individual competition and second place in the team competition. A positive result, the latter, that the ARGO "ARea Guidance Optimization" team, composed of CIRA, Parthenope University, Zephyraerospace, ENAV and Arcan has achieved in the Forlì Challenge Days held on 23 and 24 September 2022.</p><p style="text-align:justify;">The important contribution provided by CIRA has been developed in synergy with the activities carried out within the projects EATS (Efficient Air Transport System) and ASSURED UAM (Acceptance, Safety and Sustainability Recommendations for Efficient Deployment of UAM). The sinergy with these projects has made it possible to address the development of an Obstacle Detection system, based on the use of LIDAR, SONAR and Radar OnChip sensors, in a targeted and well contextualized way in the framework of Urban Air Mobility (UAM). At the same time, the integration of the PhD activities within the aforementioned projects makes it possible to ensure the consistency of the concept of operations and system architecture with respect to the requirements applicable in future UAM scenarios and with respect to the design methodologies of Detect and Avoid technologies (DAA).</p><p><br></p>2022-09-26T22:00:00Z
