Eurocontrol’s Innovation Hub at Brétigny, near Paris, inaugurated its Paris Region Drone Centre of Excellence and opened a drone corridor operations room in cooperation with Hub Drones Systematic and Thales on 1 December 2021
The newly formed centre aims to support the promotion, validation and industrialisation of drone-related activities by bringing on board the different stakeholders of the drone ecosystem. It will feature a 40km long drone corridor located over cities, rail and road infrastructure south of Paris in order to test drone use cases in the real-life environment and to validate U-Space services.
Eurocontrol Innovation Hub is hosting the operation room for this activity which will in the near future include a simulation platform.
The centre intends to network this local initiative with other European drone validation centres with the objective to share the results and lessons learned and to facilitate and accelerate the U-space service validation and implementation at European level.
