Digital Tower – The future is already here

Per Ahl

by Per Ahl, CEO, Saab Digital Air Traffic Solutions, SDATS

One of the last industries to be “digitalized” is Air Traffic Control, ATC, and Airport Tower operation. What will be the impact of introducing a new disruptive technology in a very conservative branch? Will there be any more brick and concrete towers constructed in the world? What have been the biggest hurdles to first in the world to introduce this type of solution? How will the integration of drone operation look like?

Scaling Drone Delivery In Southeast Asia

Michael Currie

by Michael Currie, Fling

Drone delivery is scaling rapidly in the large cities of Southeast Asia. In this presentation Michael Currie discusses Fling’s cargo delivery missions for medical and e-commerce within Thailand, as well as the platform for tracking and placing orders that Fling has specifically developed for aerial deliveries, that is available for use by other drone delivery service providers. For drone delivery providers just starting out, Fling’s built-out drone infrastructure makes it fast for a startup to go from buying a delivery drone to flying real missions with real, paying, customers.

Aspects of UTM systems & U-Space services to consider when rolling-out Cargo Drone operations

Tim McCarthy

by Dr. Tim McCarthy, Senior Lecturer, Maynooth University

Unmanned Cargo flight operations present various challenges in terms of their design, construction and management – all of which will need to be investigated, developed and adapted for long-haul, short-haul, regional and urban operational environments.

Various topics need to be considered including; automation, aircraft platform performance, airspace structure, routing, de-confliction, optimisation, emergency event handling and ground infrastructure. These topics are underpinned by regulatory (legislation, protocols, certification), technology (aerospace, sensors, connectivity, computation) and operational (UTM/U-Space services, business models, Societal) aspects.
