The work is executed by a multidisciplinary team of scientists, public administrations and SMEs spread across Europe.
The project is divided into eight work packages (WPs) forming three main work package groups. Scientific and practical work packages 2–6 will interact in a variety of project phases. Support work packages, namely WP1 and WP8, provide the associated dissemination, exploitation and management support. Finally, the practical work package 7 covers validates the AiRMOUR solutions in real life settings and via simulations of scenarios.
WP1 Project management and coordination
The first work package is fully dedicated to carry out management, coordination and reporting activities of the project.
WP2 Emergency medical services UAM concept descriptions, foresight and functional requirements
The objective of the second work package is to describe the functional requirements for the selected manned and unmanned UAM emergency medical service missions. This includes, for example, defining suitable landing locations, air routes and 112-integration.
WP3 Safety, cybersecurity and regulatory review
The overall objective is to capture the legal framework and related guidelines for the emergency medical service scenarios. It delivers preliminary results and recommendations to the planning of the AiRMOUR real-life demonstrations and simulations. After demonstrations, a full report with recommendations will be delivered.
WP4 Acceptance, public interest and socio-economic impacts
The fourth work package investigates present public acceptance in Europe with specific focus on the UAM urban and peri-urban areas, such as in the AiRMOUR UAM validation sites in Norway, Finland and Germany. Furthermore, the work package aims to understand how public acceptance evolves over time when brought into contact with drones and air taxis during the live demonstrations.
WP5 Sustainability, operational and environmental attractiveness
Objective of this work package is the estimation of CO2 life cycle emission for selected emergency medical service UAM concepts, compared to other modalities. These estimations are validated during real-life demonstrations. Also, WP5 assesses the attractiveness of emergency medical service UAM business models as well as provides new, co-created business models.
WP6 Creating a UAM toolbox: City planning tools and UAM guidebook
The objective of the AiRMOUR UAM toolbox is to create a long-lived impact, helping bridge professionals from aviation and cities. The UAM toolbox will include visualisation tools, such as configurable maps, a curated overview of the different aspects to Urban Air Mobility in the form of an UAM guidebook for Cities as well as a structured and modular UAM training scheme.
WP7 Validation and verification via simulations and demonstrations
The main objective is to validate and demonstrate UAM emergency medical service concepts developed in WP2. A framework for validation and demonstration will be set up and tested during the real-life demonstrations in Stavanger, Helsinki and Kassel. Simulations will take place in Luxembourg and Dubai.
WP8 Dissemination, communication and exploitation
The work package aims to maximise the impact and promote the AiRMOUR project and its results, creating awareness among the stakeholders. Effective communication actions will be planned and executed during each phase of the project lifecycle. It includes a close cooperation with the External Advisory Board, Replicator Cities and other important third parties.
