Safir Open Day

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

On September 5th, the SAFIR consortium will bring drone traffic one step closer to reality. During the first Open Day at DronePort in Sint-Truiden, the SAFIR project partners will showcase how technology supports the safe deployment of a multitude of drones (you can register here).

European Commissioner for Transport Violeta Bulc will be joining us to witness the drone flights and technologies.

This U-Space project has received funding from the SESAR Joint Undertaking under the European Union’s Connection Europe Facility (CEF) programme under grant agreement SJU/LC/344-CTR.
