UCA around the corner? – Presented by Hans Heerkens, Assistant Professor, University of Twente / Chairman, Platform Unmanned Cargo Aircraft, at Online Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, which will take place on December 8, 2020.
For years, UCA have been in silent development. Now, the first operational UCA services are about to start. But while small companies often initiate innovations, large organizations are needed to spread them. UCA infrastructure is a public good, and the recognition of this will help to determine the competitive power of operators and of countries and regions.

presentated by Jeroen Wink, CEO, Dawn Aerospace, at ONLINE Unmanned Aircraft Conference, 8 December 2020, 16:30 – 20:30 CET. REGISTER HERE to attend.
Dawn Aerospace, founded in 2016 by graduates from Delft University’s ‘record-breaking Stratos II sounding rocket’ design team, is developing a radically different small launch vehicle, a rocket powered UAV, to cater for the high frequency, dedicated, low-cost needs of the emerging small satellite market. Is Dawn’s rapidly reusable ‘gas and go’ spaceplane the answer?

We have heard a lot about drone deliveries, especially about how companies get permits to fly, several videos of deliveries being done to selected end customers and all that. We have also seen forecasts that says the drone delivery industry will be worth $XYZ Billions. What we have not seen is adequate explanation of the underlying business models, if there is any. This presentation will cover some details about the business models, and showcase the difference between reality and fantasy of inflated values.

This JakajimaTV interview with Ed de Reyes is a follow up on the previous interview with Ed de Reyes about unmanned cargo aircraft, runways, large drones with high payload, about Sabrewing’s own VTOL cargo aircraft, the Rhaegel, Certification, and more, hosted by Pieter Hermans.

There’s an idea called the adjacent possible — the concept that at any moment in time there is a unique frontier of inventions that are now enabled by the current state of everything else. Early powered flight needed an engine that could deliver enough thrust, and that was light enough to be carried aloft — it was a critical enabling technology that made flight an adjacent possible.

These days, people refer to them as “drones”. But drones are not Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and UAM isn’t an Unmanned Air Vehicle. So why all the fuss about names? We’ll to begin with, one segment of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) has been around for over 100 years. This presentation will explain the differences – and why such differences “make a difference” thank just a name.

The talk will include considerations to safely and efficiently integrate unmanned cargo operations of all sizes into the national airspace system. The talk will focus on specific concepts, technologies, and procedures related to aircraft, network operations center, communication/navigation/surveillance needs, and air traffic management. The talk will address interesting considerations within nominal and off-nominal scenarios.
