National overview for a sustainable future within air mobility seminar

The Swedish Air Navigation Services Provider (LFV), Linköping University (LiU) and Independent Business Group (IBG) will plan and conduct a flight with a larger drone that will carry 10 kg of cargo and transport it at least 50 km.

As part of the demonstration days, we organize a seminar with concluded panel discussion with experts from the industry.

IBG, LFV and Linköping University invite you to a webinar during the afternoon of 6/10 where you will have the opportunity to hear people from the aviation and air mobility industry talk about how we can solve the question:

How can more people and packages move in and around cities – through point-to-point flights, bypassing ground congestion and with shorter journey times, while meeting the goal of decarbonizing cities and offering smart and sustainable mobility solution? As well as how the role of airports is changing and how they are changing to a more sustainable future in aviation and airports.

Program:

13:00 Intro – Welcome

CORUS path the way forward for UAM in Sweden
Billy Josefsson, Swedish ANSP – Luftfartsverket (LFV)

The journey of the Swedish CORUS XUAM project has taught us a lot; it has impacted the way we work forward within UAM but also given us mutual learnings.
The mutual learning from the dialogue with the municipalities and regions has been an eyeopener and help to set priorities in order to get the UAM services in place.

ConOps in practice: translating vision to reality
Valentin Polishchuck, Linköping University

CORUS-XUAM, along with other EU-funded projects and support from the Swedish Transport Agency, allowed LiU and LFV become the academically strongest ATM/UTM research group in the Nordic countries, working on both single drone missions and AAM at scale; last research results, obtained in collaboration with world leading institutions, will be shown.

Advanced Air Mobility – impact on the city, residents and businesses
Kim Silander, Independent Business Group (IBG)

For society, much is at stake and there is much to be gained. Expanding airspace is both the greenest and cheapest way to create mobility. Airspace is incredibly green to build and much cheaper, society can thus reduce costs and environmental impact by supplementing ground infrastructure with air routes. Municipalities will also be able to offer community services over longer distances by giving AAM 15 minutes to grow the city.

The societal benefit with a hub for the aviation of the future
Jonas Nilson, Norrköping Science Park

A Swedish base for a EDIH hub in aviation with aim to promoting the transition to sustainable aviation in the future will be placed in Norrköping. The hub will give access to test facilities, training, and investor network which in turn create growth, increased competitiveness among the companies, environmental benefit, and positive social development in the region, in Sweden and in Europe.

The airports of the future
Svante Rudström, Norrköping Airport

The airport can create benefits regarding new environmentally friendly means of transport for people and goods and can contribute to the entire climate transition by producing/storing self-produced green electricity etc. There is an incredible amount going on right now in the aviation industry and Norrköping is becoming an important player for the whole of Sweden this.

Climate-smart fossil-free airports
John Nilson, Swedavia

Swedavia is restructuring its own operations but also with initiatives that will drive the development of fossil-free aviation. Through biofuel, electricity and eventually hydrogen, the aviation industry is converting to fossil-free aviation.

The implementation of U-space in Sweden
Christoffer Massinger, Swedish Transport agency

The development in drones is going fast and must be integrated into the airspace in a safe, efficient and environmentally friendly way – it must happen through U-space. U-space is a concept of digital services and systems that will eventually enable tomorrow’s transport.

Link to the seminar will be shared on October 6 at IBG and LFV’s social channels.
