UAV at airports - a twofold challenge
For many people, the idea of drones at airports is ominous. However, although drones do pose a risk to air traffic and large-scale infrastructure, this technology also offers opportunities for innovative areas of business.
Both aspects of the use of drones present challenges that need to be considered.
The “FraDrones” programme established in 2014 by Fraport AG consists of various projects on the use of and protection against drones at airports. Both areas of application are associated with different kinds of challenges.
What are these challenges from a technical, operational and regulatory perspective? And where are the innovations as such taking place?
What are the potential uses of drones at airports and what special aspects need to be considered? Is there an effective means of protection against third-party drones?
