Germany’s Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI) issued a funding certificate to the Uncrewed Traffic Management (UTM) joint venture Droniq, formed by German air navigation services provider DFS and Deutsche Telekom. Droniq is taking part in a project with Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft für Verkehrs- und Infrastruktursysteme (IVI) concerned with the automated risk assessment of planned drone flights (especially in the special category) and thus to be able to better integrate drones into everyday life in the future. The AuRa project is addressing automation of the risk assessment process for flights of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).
Both partners attended the event hosted by the German Minister of Transport, Dr. Volker Wissing. A short presentation was delivered by Droniq CEO Jan-Eric Putze and Susanne Günter from Fraunhofer IVI.
AuRa associated partners include: Regierungspräsidium Stuttgart (Referat 46.2 – Luftverkehr und Luftsicherheit), Freie Hansestadt Bremen, Die Senatorin für Wissenschaft andd Häfen, Luftfahrtbehörde.
