European SAFIR-Med research project announces first demonstration flights in Belgium on 7 April 2022

The SESAR SAFIR-Med research project plans the first demonstration flights and Conference will take place on the 7th of April 2022 at DronePort in Sint-Truiden in Belgium. The event is organised by Future Needs.

The event agenda includes:

  • Flight demonstrations and the scenarios and supporting technologies;
  • Presentation of UAM indicators that help cities evaluate and monitor the impact of U-space application; and
  • The opportunity to network with project partners by visiting their booths.

The aim of the event is to demonstrate how the SAFIR-Med project advances the state-of-the-art in European U-space achieving safe, sustainable, socially accepted and socially beneficial urban air mobility. With the impulse from COVID-19 and EU drone legislation, the landscape is changing in favour of medical drones. This will showcase how is society is getting closer to bringing medical UAM to cities and their citizens. The event will present and demonstrate various medical use cases, as well as a set of UAM indicators we developed that enable UAM impact assessment and finally several new technologies developed in the project. The trial flights will demonstrate the transport of human tissue and/or biological lab samples and medicine, an operation with a drone carrying an automated external defibrillator, and a patient transport operation.
