Abstract

This paper presents results of real flight evaluation of integrated communication, navigation and surveillance solution equipment for both manned and unmanned aerial vehicles aiming to share the same airspace. An equipment set, consisting of an experimental CNS device connected to Internet over an LTE modem with a proper antenna, and own battery is developed and installed on an aircraft, a rotorcraft and two drones. The usability of this equipment is evaluated from both technical and operational point of view in the UTM and ATM reflexes exhibited in the cases of area violation and route deviation of manned / unmanned aerial vehicles in controlled and uncontrolled airspace.
