Abstract


The aim of this paper is to determine the role of Common Information Service (CIS) in the U-space environment. Ensuring the correct role of the CIS and all high-level connections is the first step to implementing U-space in specific airspace and as such needs to be finished as soon as possible. The paper is based on the current state-of-the-art in the field of drones and the development of the integration of drones’ operation into airspace. Options considered are based on analysing existing solutions in Europe and in the world, and the development of regulations leading to the current draft of U-space legislation. The paper presents two main possibilities of connections between U-space stakeholders and sets out eight criteria according to which both options are compared. This comparison results in considering feasibility for both options, but the one where the CIS plays a central role through which all information flows is evaluated as better.
