– The European Commission (EC) has initiated a series of Digital Sky Demonstrator (DSD) projects to advance its Sustainable and Smart Mobility Strategy.
– These projects aim to speed up the incorporation of U-space and urban air mobility (UAM) services into the market.
– The DSDs will also enhance the “Action plan on synergies between civil, defence and space industries” adopted in February 2020.
– One of the key components of the action plan is the “EU Drone Technologies Flagship” project.
European Commission Pushes for Advancement with Digital Sky Demonstrator Projects
Accelerating U-space and Urban Air Mobility Services
The European Commission(EC) initiatives bring together U-space and urban air mobility services under the Digital Sky Demonstrator projects. These projects serve dual purposes: propulsion of the sustainable and smart mobility strategy, and amplification of the “Action plan on synergies between civil, defence and space industries”.
EU Drone Technologies Flagship Project
One major component of the action plan is the “EU Drone Technologies Flagship” project, foreshadowing a future where drones play a more crucial role in civil, defence and space industries across Europe.
From a broad perspective, the initiation of the Digital Sky Demonstrator projects highlights the EC’s commitment to promoting sustainable and smart mobility. It’s exciting to see the potential promotion and incorporation of drones into daily urban life, fostering a more efficient and interconnected city ecosystem. Also, the emphasis on synergy between civil, defence and space industries underscores its vision of multifaceted drone integration. This not only adds a new dimension to mobility but also signals a paradigm shift in how defence and space technologies can be leveraged. This European endeavour certainly places a keen eye on the future of drones, their capabilities, and their transformative potential.
