Internship: Drone flight mission planner for U-space

By 18 novembre 2022 No Comments


In the framework of MISTRAL group internal roadmap, you will take part in the definition and development of a Drone flight mission planner tool for a drone operator such as BOREAL with emphasis on data exchanges with future USSP & CISP (U-space service Provider & Common Information Service Provider).

The BOREAL UAS is a fixed wing, long-range unmanned aircraft system designed for ISR missions, reaching up to 8h of endurance.


Supervised by expert in ATM/UTM and UAS systems and operations at M3 Systems Belgium, you will analyse, define and develop a drone flight mission planner tool focusing on future integration and data exchange with Common Information Service Provider and U-space Service Provider. The objectives will be to consolidate drone operator needs in terms of mission preparation and information, conduct a state of the art analysis, describe future system capabilities and potential architecture as well as select useful information and already available dataset to develop a prototype for BOREAL UAS operator.


  • Conduct state of the art and future trends analysis.
  • Consolidate end-users needs and document user requirements
  • Describe operational concept from UAS operator perspective and describe future potential scenario / interfaces and architectures.
  • Description and documentation of both operational and system description should be done using CAPELLA tool and methodology.
  • Together with M3 Systems and BOREAL teams select key requirements and define the scope for developing prototype.
  • Develop and integrate Common Information data samples on selected datasets (e.g. population density, obstacles, weather product) into BOREAL GCS flight planning tool.


  • Recently graduates/Master students
  • Studies in engineering (aerospace, telecommunications, industrial, mechanical…)
  • English: negotiation level
  • Team spirit and great collaboration skills
  • Ability to work in autonomy
