WHY DO YOU NEED A GROUND-BASED AIR TRAFFIC SURVEILLANCE SYSTEM?
TO GET YOUR OPERATIONAL AUTHORIZATION
TO GET YOUR LOW-ALTITUDE AIRSPACE MANAGEMENT CERTIFICATE/USSP CERTIFICATE
MAKE YOUR AIRSPACE COMPLIANT WITH iCONSPICUITY REGULATION AND LOCATE ALL AIRCRAFTS CROSSING YOUR AIRSPACE
INVOLI ground-based surveillance system can enable USSPs and FIS providers to comply with the incoming iConspicuity / E-conspicuity regulation.
Expected to enter into force in January 2023. Closely following the regulatory developments, INVOLI has developed the G-1090 air traffic receivers to be able to detect electronically conspicuous aircraft in U-space Airspaces and Transponder Mandatory Zones (TMZ) in non-controlled airspace.
In addition, to locate ADS-B signals, the G-1090 and INVOLI platforms are ready to welcome the new ADS-L surveillance technology defined in the coming AMC/GM of EASA application rule SERA.6005(c).

Operational Authorisations in the Specific Category remain difficult to obtain from Civil Aviation Authorities. This is especially true for BVLOS and Automated flights due to the high risk of UAS encounter with manned (or crewed) aviation.
Drone (or UAS) Operators can provide evidence of robust tactical mitigation means by using reliable surveillance systems able to detect all kinds of aircraft.
By using the INVOLI solution, UAS Operators can meet the Tactical Mitigation Performance Requirements (TMPR) necessary to increase their chances to obtain an Operational Authorisation to conduct BVLOS and Automated operations.
For a long time, the lack of a proper regulatory framework prevented open drone operations from reaching their full potential. Now, regulators around the world are finally agreeing on a common approach to enable safety for the users of the skies.
Private entities can now become a U-space / UTM airspace manager, as certified by their local aviation authorities. They can thus ensure the orderly coexistence between drones, manned aviation and air traffic control. The certified entities will manage flight operations of large numbers of simultaneous drone operations.
U-space airspace managers will need to present a solid risk assessment to their aviation authorities in order to get certified. Both precise risk analysis and a reliable live air traffic detection system maximize the chances to obtain this certification.
Carried out in different environments and airspaces, the same type of drone operations entail a different level of mid-air collision risk. Therefore, it may be hard to obtain flight authorizations from the aviation authorities as the risk will be different for every situation.
Drone operators must offer proper mitigation measures to reduce the risk of their operations. A professional, mobile air traffic detection system that can be integrated with operators’ control stations will provide such a solution.
By using this solution, drone operators have much more chances to get their authorizations issued by the authorities and to further conduct safe operations in multiple different locations.
Only a few categories of airspace are currently monitored with professional equipment, mostly around international airports. However, a lot more areas are yet to be equipped to face the rising number of anticipated aircraft flights and drone operations.
Airspace managers can deploy a scalable and affordable ground-based network of air traffic receivers in the most remote areas using the existing professional infrastructure. This comprehensive cooperative airspace surveillance solution provides flight information service and allows the detection of electronic conspicuity devices in uncontrolled areas.
Airspace managers will have in hand the necessary safety-critical data to reduce the risk of accidents in previously uncontrolled airspaces. This visibility will positively impact several airspace users, for instance, regional airports, emergency services, drone operators, or infrastructure owners.
High infrastructure, such as wind farms or electric lines, is dangerous for aircraft during nighttime. To remedy that problem, such infrastructure is equipped with powerful obstacle avoidance lights to be visible by air traffic. However, those constantly on lights create light pollution for both nature and people.
To reduce this light pollution and increase public acceptance of wind farms or other high infrastructure, an air traffic detection system allows to switch on those obstacle lights only when an aircraft passes by and keep those lights switched off the rest of the time.
To switch off obstacle lights as often as possible during nighttime is becoming mandatory in more and more countries. An adequate air traffic detection system is an efficient solution to prevent light pollution and improve air traffic safety.
In case of incidents, rescue teams must arrive on-site as fast as possible. Having to act quickly, rescue helicopters, airplanes, and drones risk creating air traffic conflicts within the intervention area or surrounding medical facilities.
To avoid such accidents and to notify other users of ongoing operations, a reliable live air traffic visualization tool should be used by an emergency operation center in order to manage the deconfliction challenge in such hazardous situations.
Such instantaneous, precise, and reliable air traffic data reduces the risks of accidents and enables rescue teams to continue saving lives without putting others at risk.
INTEGRATE DRONE TRAFFIC INFORMATION
WHAT ABOUT NON-COOPERATIVE TRAFFIC?
INVOLI is specialized in Cooperative Air Traffic Detection, however, we have developed strategic partnerships with non-cooperative air traffic detection solution providers to help you integrate with our INVOLI Traffic Information Server and provide a single source of information.
DO YOU HAVE CUSTOM NEEDS?
INVOLI can provide custom-built solutions for your particular needs, whether you would like to integrate existing sensors or build your own infrastructure.
