Droneports have a key role to speed up & facilitate the regulatory adoption of drone operations, as well as the advent of full automatization, by enhancing their security and structural organization.
More specifically, our D-LOG One Unmanned drone Ground handling Station (UGHS) provides:
1) defined & secured areas to automate VTOL operations.
2) defined aerial roads (”corridors”) with the stations working as pit-stops (in the same way as train stations define pathways).
3) a reliable & complete communication system between drones and their ground & air monitoring.
Moreover, we would like to underline the great work done by the following ecosystems and organizations to push our industry forward:
- In Switzerland, SUSI (Swiss U-Space Implementation), a public-private partnership between Federal Office of Civil Aviation Switzerland (FOCA), the air navigation provider Skyguide and a varied range of industry stakeholders, with the overarching goal to integrate drones into the airspace in a safe and secure way, enforcing collaboration, pushing progress, quality and innovation.
- At the European level, the EASA - European Union Aviation Safety Agency, an agency of the European Union with specific regulatory responsibilities and executive tasks in the area of aviation safety, and the Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR), a collaborative project to completely overhaul European airspace and its air traffic management (ATM). Also, the Alliance for New Mobility Europe (AME), which bring new markets & business opportunities, with a focus on integrating UAVs and VTOLs into aviation and other ecosystems, by developing all necessary rulemaking and standards.
- In the United States, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), an operating administration within the U.S. Department of Transportation, with the mission to serve its country by ensuring a fast, safe, efficient, accessible and convenient transportation system, building the next generation (NextGen) of satellite-based navigation systems, and fostering the safe integration of unmanned aerial systems into the airspace.
