PODIUM

Drones have many possible uses. They have the potential bring enormous added value to our daily lives in many areas, such as agriculture, the media, maintenance, deliveries, surveillance and inspection. However they are small and difficult to detect.Left unmanaged, the increasing drone traffic can easily pose a threat to bystanders and manned aviation.

PODIUM is a SESAR Horizon 2020 project supporting U-space, the European vision for the safe, secure and efficient handling of drone traffic and a key enabler for the growing drone market to generate economic and societal benefits.
