Abstract
Systematic integration of Remotely Piloted Aircraft System (RPAS) in non-segregated airspace is one of the major challenges that Air Traffic Management (ATM) must tackle. This integration is extremely complex and has to be done methodologically taking into account the different stakeholders to ensure safety. Thus, this paper focus on the development and validation of conflict-resolution algorithms between RPAS and conventional aircraft in a non-segregated airspace. The basis of these algorithms is to calculate the minimum distance of protection. This minimum distance of protection determines the last position in which a RPAS must climb to avoid a separation minima infringement. Consequently, the distance of protection depends on the rate of climb, RPAS and conventional aircraft velocity and intersecting angles among others. This paper presents three different scenarios or ?Conflict-geometry', which depends on the intersecting angle of both aircraft trajectories. Results confirm that RPAS flying in opposition to a conventional aircraft is the worst scenario. On the other hand, the reduction of the crossing angle between paths means a reduction in the minimum distance of protection. Moreover, the more the rate of climb, the less separation is required to avoid a conflict. However, this relationship is not proportional. This relationship means that it could exist a standard minimum distance of protection for every RPAS requiring only a specified ROCD.
