Finnish UAV Ecosystem

Project: Academy of Finland project

Project Details


Exploitation of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is increasing at an enormous rate. The fundamental objective of the multidisciplinary FUAVE consortium is to establish a new research, development and innovation partnership network/ecosystem to support development of Finnish knowledge base, competence spearheads and business related to the future unmanned aviation and its applications. Our core vision is that controlled test areas are the fundamental facilitator for this development. Such test areas should act as city or rural area living labs providing a single entry point and one-stop service point for any matters associated with research and business activities within the U-Space as well as applications of UAVs. These test areas can be utilized for testing, research and demonstration to develop safe, secure and all-weather resilient UAS technologies and promote scalable Urban/Rural Air Mobility solutions. The FUAVE will implement and experiment this vision with its collaborators.
