As part of the AQUAS project, Integrasys is developing an unmanned air traffic management demonstrator based on the Intel® Aero platform for UAVs. The UTM use case focuses on very low level UAV operations, where a clear need is arising for the improvement of situation awareness capabilities.

Together with AbsInt, All4Tec, Austrian Institute of Technology, Brno University of Technology, City University of London, INTECS SpA, KPIT Medini Technologies, RheinMain University, SYSGO, TrustPort and the University of L’Aquila, novel security-performance co-engineering methods and tools will be applied to optimise communication throughput and reduce battery consumption while keeping the high security and safety levels demanded in these scenarios.
