ADACORSA - Airborne data collection on resilient system architectures

Through the years, the drone market has extended from remotely operated flying devices to Uncrewed Aircraft Systems (UAS) that can operate autonomously Beyond Visible Line of Sight (BVLOS), introducing capabilities such as environmental sensing and independent decision making and enabling highly reliable and secure air to ground communication. ADACORSA targets to strengthen the European drone industry and increase public and regulatory acceptance of BVLOS (beyond visual line-of-sight) drones, by demonstrating technologies for safe, reliable and secure drone operation in all situations and flight phases.
