Demand and Capacity Optimisation for U-Space

Keep the Balance In Drone Traffic

Unmanned aerial vehicles are on the verge of disrupting urban traffic as we know it. For safe and efficient operations on a daily basis, future drone ecosystems will need mechanisms to level demand and capacity. That’s why we explore next generation balancing processes for the very low level airspace.

Our Activities

The DCB Process

DACUS aims at the development of a service-oriented Demand and Capacity Balancing (DCB) process for drone traffic management.


To share our progress we continuously publish project reports and scientific work. Visit our download section!


To realize our mission, we organize and host events to foster exchange with internal and external partners. Find out where to join us!

News & Media Appearances

Municipality Survey on URBAN DRONE OPERATIONS


Today we launched our first exploratory survey. The goal is to incorporate the views and expactations of city authorities on regulations and constraints for drone operations. Therefore, the questionnaire is provided to the members of the EIP-SCC. You are welcome to join the survey.

Exchange of IDeas with the Consortium of Metropolis II


These days our sibling project Metropolis 2 has its official kick-off. They focus on the design of urban airspace and separation management. Happily, we had the opportunity for a bilateral meeting to exchange ideas and agree on a future coordination of efforts.

1st WorkShop On Influence Factors


Over 20 experts discussed the impact of selected factors on the UAV demand and capacity volumes in U-Space in our first workshop. More on LinkedIn
