EDIS - Electric Flights and Drones in Community Service

Published: 17 August 2020

Drone technology, remote control, automation and autonomous vehicles are areas with a growing interest globally. LFV FoI has already successfully completed a number of projects in areas such as sustainability, safety and reduction of running costs for airports. This project aims at moving new technology from the framework of the airport out into practical use for the community. The project focus lies on the use of electric drones / eVTOL (Electric Vertical Take-off and Landing) with range and speed capabilities by far exceeding the standard today. These capacities open up for new application areas within emergency / rescue operations as well as long range scheduled missions to watch for forest fires and inventory of forest status for the industry.
