UNMANNED SYSTEMS: HOW DRONES CAN IMPROVE OUR LIVES
Unmanned aviation has unleashed a revolution in aviation. The question is: How can the private sector truly benefit from drones? When will we be able to hail an air taxi? How can these be safely integrated in the airspace? And how can these new forms of mobility be deployed sustainably? In the ILA exhibition area “UAS Innovation Hub” you can meet the key players in unmanned aviation to discuss these questions – and many more.

A RANGE OF POSSIBILITIES
Entire new business models are now possible thanks to drones. They can boost service, comfort and safety in a variety of areas, and even save lives by transporting blood bottles for transfusion.
Drones can inspect wind power stations, bridges or dams. They can detect defects that previously could only be found with the laborious efforts of industrial climbers. They can be deployed in a fast, safe and inexpensive manner.
Critical goods like medicine require fast, flexible delivery. Drones offer a way to bypass traffic, especially in densely populated urban areas.
Drones open up a world of new possibilities in the agricultural sector with precision farming. Now, the efficient use of machines for seeding and harvesting will be easier than ever before.
It is expected that about 60 percent of the world’s population will live in conurbations by 2030. In a few years, UAVs are likely to improve mobility for millions of these city dwellers. The five German Air-Mobility-Regions will put this aspect in the spotlight at the Federal Ministry for Transport and digital Infrastructure (BMVI in German) booth in Mai.
Without any doubt drones have multiple and highly practical applications, as they are also used for important services to the society in general. But the number of incidents is growing: drones are increasingly invading no-fly-zones such as those around airports or events, e.g. in stadiums. An improper –or even a terrorist- use of drones poses a serious threat for people. Being able to detect them in the air space and to counter them in case of emergency is a duty shared by national security agencies and the industry alike, in order to maintain existing high security standards in aerospace.
THE ENTIRE SECTOR IN ONE SINGLE LOCATION
At ILA Berlin, the entire exhibition area "UAS Innovation Hub" will be dedicated to the full spectrum of unmanned aviation. Exhibitors from around the world will be there – ranging from manufacturers to research institutes, and from established system suppliers to up-and-coming startups.
Here you will find our offer.
Unmanned aviation will also be a focus of ILA’s prestigious conference program, where experts from industry, research and government will engage in focused, friendly dialogue – on issues like future UAS regulations, for example.
USES FOR COMMERCIAL DRONES
Drones already offer a wide range of potential applications. For example, the charity Doctors without Borders are conducting tests to determine how drones could improve access to medical supplies in isolated areas, while in South Africa they are being deployed to detect poachers. Experts also predict that unmanned aircraft will revolutionize processes in the logistics industry. These five sectors are expected to see the most important applications by 2020:
