Drones have the potential to change the way teams and entire organizations operate but what does it mean to enable such revolutionary changes in small and large ways? What has the attempt to do so meant to the people that are working to define the value of the technology in the present and future? Hear from experts from across the world that are working to enable and support this revolution in more ways than one.
The Drone Revolution in Europe
The EU is at the forefront of attempting to classify and regulate drones depending on the risks associated with their flight operations, with three main categories put into use: Open, Specific and Certified. Most Open and Specific Category drones, which tend to be smaller and operate with less risk than those in the Certified Category, will soon require CE marking to enter the EU market. This CE marking process is dictated by Delegated Regulation (EU) 2019/945, which classifies UAS into 7 classes (CO-C6) and stipulates the test requirements for each. Applus+ Laboratories was the very first company to be accredited to perform the conformity assessment for all the drones and drone accessory kits covered by (EU) 2019/945. In this presentation, their representative Jim Warden will explain this new certification process as well as the ways that test labs are shaping the development of the eVTOL aircraft of the Certified Category.
