Airspace Integration Week Madrid will be held in two complementary venues – IFEMA and Cuatro Vientos Airport – where there will be two exhibition areas as well as several theatres – ENAIRE ATM Integration Theatre; Space Theatre; Expodrónica U-space / Civil UAVs Initiative Theatre and Spotlight Arena- which will host more than 50 round tables.
The event discusses the interrelation of ATM, UTM and STM concepts, the theatres will include panels and presentations on the three main areas in the event: traditional air traffic management, UAS and space operations, and, finally, a transversal area of civil-military cooperation.
Within traditional airspace the topics to be discussed include the necessary evolution of systems, procedures and infrastructures to integrate new players, automation and artificial intelligence, cybersecurity and civil-military cooperation in crisis management, among many others.
The program will bring together leading experts in the European Strategy 2.0 for the development of the drone industry, as well as the growing relevance of vertiports and infrastructures for the deployment of U-space and the integration of the new UAVs in the urban environment.
The theatres will also include topics on security, such as Counter-UAS operations and systems. And finally, the Spotlight Arena will be for topics on industry to include new technology developments, best practices, and shared solutions.
Finally, the great growth and popularization of space activity makes it necessary to talk about different concepts related to it, by addressing the opportunities and risks of space exploration and its consequences in relation to aspects such as control, security, and defense, sustainability, governance and legislation.
At the event, the third Congress on Space Legislation will be held. Space Legislation is a demand driven strategy responding to the different initiatives of the United Nations and the European Union to establish an international regulation for outer space.
Drone Film Festival & Integration Awards
In addition, Airspace Integration Week will host the ATM, STM and UTM Integration Awards as well as the Civil-Military Cooperation Awards and the first Drone Film Festival to be held in Europe.
