The challenges and expectations of UAS traffic management for airspace integration in Brazil

Abstract : The safe and efficient integration of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS) and manned aircraft into Air Traffic Management (ATM) is one of today's biggest challenges in aviation. When we talk about Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM), besides Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), Brazil as an aircraft manufacturing state cannot forget to include in the planning the urban air mobility systems that are closer and closer to become a reality. In the 400 feet range we can have flying "drones", in the most diverse urban activities, whose developing companies will have to break paradigms and prove that their aircraft are reliable from the standpoint of airworthiness, detect and avoid, but also prove that the pilots will be aware of what it is required to fly in an area that eventually will have manned aircraft controlled by ATC agencies. Therefore, it is possible to affirm that the flow of air traffic will intensify, which can generate air traffic conflicts both between UA and UA and eventually between manned aircraft and UAs. This work intends to show how Brazil deals with the regulation of UAs with their respective aviation authorities in the country (ANAC and DECEA), as well as to show a possible proposal that seeks to facilitate the integration of ATM airspace through an interdisciplinary study group involving both authorities. This research team will have the mission to develop guidelines for a technical proposal so that both stakeholders in civil aviation regulation can jointly develop the requirements for the integration of the airspace.
