Challenges for SAFIR-Med are to manage the high density of UAS traffic with safety, ensuring priority to drones, supporting medical operations, when needed. This will be accomplished by providing flight authorisations and ensuring deconfliction between drones at strategic, pre-tactical and tactical level. This includes allocation of areas of operations and validation of “free” trajectories requested by UAS operators. Then, to ensure medical drones’ priority it will be required to enable the usage of pre-defined corridors, activated when needed, for the benefit of UAS operating in emergency as well as for inter UAM connections.

This concept is a first step that will evolve based on experience acquired during this demonstration and emerging capabilities.
