Drone strategy 2.0

DronePort Rotterdam is focused on creating societal impact. The alignment with important international strategies is therefore essential. How do we align our ambition with the Drone Strategy 2.0 from the European Commission?

  1. We align with the European Unions ambition to lead the transition to a healthy planet and a new digital world. The EU's objective of achieving climate neutrality by 2050 and the digitalization of the economy resonate with DronePort's mission. We focus on creating digital services in an integrated system while using uncrewed assets that are based on alternative energy sources.
  2. We contribute to the development of the European Unions drone service market by fostering innovations in airspace capabilities, especially in U-space development and integration with Air Traffic Management. The vision emphasizes the seamless operation of all airspace users, including drones, in a safe and efficient manner.
  3. We support the strengthening of the Union’s civil, security, and defense industry capabilities. By focusing on critical technology building blocks, such as AI, robotics, (cyber) security, and advanced communication systems, DronePort ensures that European know-how remains at the forefront of drone technology. The defense capabilities come together in on of our projects where we focus on Counter-UAS.
  4. We recognize the importance of flight testing and demonstrations, DronePort Rotterdam provides an environment where new drone prototypes can move from concept to deployment. The facility acts as a hub for demonstrating technical capabilities and securing support from local and national authorities and where other stakeholders can test their own use cases/demonstrators in a safe and secure environment.
  5. We commit to ensure the safety and security of drone operations. By aligning with the European Drone Strategy 2.0, DronePort emphasizes the importance of a comprehensive EU policy in the field of drones, ensuring that operations are carried out in a safe, secure, and sustainable manner.
