Project FALKE: Successful interception of illegally flying drones at Hamburg Airport (VIDEO)

On 22 September 2021, the interception of a non-cooperative drone was successfully demonstrated for the first time in a field test at Hamburg Airport as part of the FALKE project, funded by the BMVI (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure) - for interesting insights, watch the VIDEO.

FALKE provides an automated and standardised solution that can also be used at other German airports, considering all areas of competence and responsibility. In addition to the Frequentis Group, the German Federal Police, DFS, Lufthansa, Hamburg Airport, the Hensoldt Group, and the Professorship for Electrical Measurement Technology at the Helmut Schmidt University (HSU) Hamburg are involved in the project.

FREQUENTIS Orthogon supports the Airport Operations Plan with its Demand Capacity Balancer solution

The Demand Capacity Balancer (DCB) extends the airport operations planning horizon by accurately forecasting demand, capacity and performance metrics. It bridges the gap between strategic, pre-tactical and tactical planning by replacing the conventional scheduled-based planning with a rolling Airport Operations Plan (AOP).

DCB enables information sharing and integration with the Network Operations Plan (NOP), for example through its unique capability to calculate and automatically propose Target Times of Arrival (TTA).

Drei partners with Dimetor to enable advanced UAV services, first virtual test with FREQUENTIS

Drei, the leading 5G network service provider in Austria, and Dimetor have partnered to enable the safe operation of drones in the airspace. A first virtual test was done together with market leader of airspace management software Frequentis and other consortium members of the SESAR JU GOF 2.0 project this week in Austria.

“In the GOF2.0 project, Frequentis, together with 14 partners, wants to demonstrate the operational validity of combining Air Traffic Management and U-space services and systems and create a shared interoperable infrastructure for both manned and unmanned aviation, especially in dense urban environments. The provision of timely, relevant, and accurate digital information to all airspace users on a system-wide basis will enable safe and secure management of unified airspace”, explains Günter Graf, Vice President New Business Development at Frequentis. “On 5 October we were able to successfully demonstrate the first live end-to-end telecom-aviation data integration in Austria, together with the Austrian mobile network operator Drei and Dimetor, in the context of a simulated trial of the GOF 2.0 project.”

Project FALKE: successful “dogfight” at Hamburg Airport

On 22 September, the interception of a non-cooperative drone was successfully demonstrated for the first time in a field test at Hamburg Airport as part of the FALKE project, funded by the BMVI (Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure).

The unauthorised intrusion of drones or Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) into control zones means an increasing threat to the operation of commercial airports. The responsible parties at the airport are faced with the challenge of quickly detecting and reacting to the illegal entry of these small and agile flying objects in order to minimise any impact to airport operations.

Using the example of Hamburg Airport, the consortium partners of the “FALKE” project are developing and demonstrating their overall technical and organisational concept for the defence against illegally operating drones. FALKE provides an automated and standardised solution that can also be used at other German airports, considering all areas of competence and responsibility. In addition to the Frequentis Group, the German Federal Police, DFS, Lufthansa, Hamburg Airport, the Hensoldt Group, and the Professorship for Electrical Measurement Technology at the Helmut Schmidt University (HSU) Hamburg are involved in the project.
