European UAV firms have been heading to a new Denmark-based drone testing facility.
Next week, A-techSyn, together with UK-based collaboration partners Cobham and Inmarsat, will travel to the test centre.
They are expected to use the new facility to perform a BVLOS flight and showcase their technology at the annual International Drone Show.
Due to a special setup with fixed daily flight times, the facility allows companies to reduce time spent on red tape and enables them to test tech easier and faster.
Adnan Cetinkaya, head of sales and operations at A-techSYN, an Ireland-based drone manufacturer, commented: “The facilities are second to none in at the UAS Denmark test center. We’ve scouted the global market for drone testing and I’ve not seen anything that can beat what’s on offer in Denmark.”
Adding: “Here we can conduct BVLOS flights in a great testing environment that covers urban, rural and coastal areas. It’s without doubt one of the best places for our company to test our technology.”
One of the few drone test centers in Europe, the UAS Denmark test center is located at HCA Airport in Odense, Denmark.
It offers 867 square km of drone airspace and is one of the few in the world that offers BVLOS flights in urban, rural and coastal areas.
Teit Silberling, business manager at UAS Denmark, said: “We’re experiencing an unprecedented demand from companies worldwide to access the test facilities – interest from global players has never been higher.”
“Our test center offers companies the opportunity to perform BVLOS flights in urban, rural and coastal areas – a service many companies struggle to find elsewhere. In fact, we only know of one other place in the world where this is possible. We’re excited about the increasing interest and look forward to helping even more companies evolve their technologies.”
