The Project

The AirBEAM project proposes a situation awareness toolbox for the management of crisis over wide area taking benefit of an optimised set of aerial (unmanned) platforms, including satellites. The number of unmanned air- and space-borne platform available and their associated sensors present a new set of challenges to end users involved in the effective management of emergencies and actions of law enforcement. Within the scope of crisis management, the project intends to provide official public users from each Member States with the means to specify their own needs and to assess the technical solutions provided by unmanned aerial platforms.

Radiolabs activities

The RadioLabs activity consists in the simulation and performance assessment of A/G Payload Datalinks PHY layers in a “single domain” and “single UAV” configuration.
