UCA around the corner? – Presented by Hans Heerkens, Assistant Professor, University of Twente / Chairman, Platform Unmanned Cargo Aircraft, at  Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, which will take place on November 28, 2018, at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

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.

Silverwing: Building Future Cargo Drones – Presented by Bernd Rietberg, Silverwing

Silverwing envisions a future where personal mobility is unlimited in three dimensions. To do this, we plan to build a machine that takes currently available technology and pushes it beyond its limits. In line with Silverwing’s forward-thinking philosophy, our design is fully electric and capable of autonomous flight. The VTOL aircraft is ultracompact, silent, emission-free and capable of heavy payloads. We will unveil our new design and vision on Unmanned Cargo Airial Transportation.

Opportunities for Cargo Drones in Africa and Lake Victoria Challenge – Presented by Caroline Gevaert, The World Bank, at the Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, on November 28, 2018, at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

The people of Lake Victoria need to be connected. According to World Bank estimates, Africa needs to spend $38 billion more each year on transport infrastructure, plus a further $37 billion on operations and maintenance — that’s just to sustain its current level of development.

Leap-frog technologies such as cargo drones can be used to overcome this infrastructure gap, providing rural towns and villages with access to services like emergency aid, commercial goods, medical supplies and wider economic opportunities.

Key learnings of Cargo Drone mission for UN in Dominican Republic – Presented by Barry Koperberg, Wings for Aid, at Unmanned Cargo Aircraft Conference, which will take place on November 28, 2018, at RAI Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Together with DLR, Wings for Aid has run a 2-week Cargo Drone mission program for the World Food Program in the Dominican Republic. During the mission, we have simulated ‘last-mile’ delivery problems and have bridged them by the use of a 20kg delivery box and an unmanned helicopter. During the presentation, we will share key learnings on logistics, flight permits, stakeholder reactions and the like. We look forward to an interactive session to gain new insights ourselves and decide on new pilot projects with partners.
