Description

Drones have captured the imagination in a big way. Ever more use cases are popping up, with drones playing vital roles in a range of different industries.

Drones offer alternative solutions to industrial and commercial activities such as the delivery of medical and consumer goods, infrastructure inspection, crop inspection, etc. They allow for a more streamlined and cost-efficient process, simplifying many of its aspects.

However, the economic fulfilment of drones’ potential hinges on their safe integration in the airspace.

On September 26th, the SAFIR consortium will bring drone traffic one step closer to reality. During the Open Day at the Port of Antwerp, the SAFIR project partners will showcase the economic viability of drones in an industrial environment.

Three U-space service providers (USSP) and one Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) collaborate to control the airspace together. Parcel delivery drone flights, inspection flights and emergency changes including medical transport feature in the test scenario.
