Unmanned air freight - a cost-effective alternative?
This year about 120 guests from the aviation community in Niedersachsen attended the annual network event on december, 12th.
Our annual network event once a year brings together all partners from the aerospace industry at the location Niedersachsen. Representatives from companies, associations and science discuss about a chosen topic in a relaxed atmosphere at the HDI-Arena in Hannover. Of course, the event also provides the opportunity for exchange and contact establishment.
A special highlight was the speech of the new Minister of Economic Affairs of Niedersachsen Dr. Bernd Althusmann as it was highly anticipated. He emphasized the importance of the aviation industry in Niedersachsen and gave an overview about the strategies from the state government to maintain and strengthen the competitiveness of Niedersachsen as a location and its companies.
One main topic was air freight. The speakers talked about the latest developments and challenges for the general aviation as well as innovative approaches for new possibilities in the air freight. Another special focus was on innovative fields of application for aircrafts. Diverse purposes for gyrocopters were a subject of discussion just as Lighter-than-Air-Technology and UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle).
In addition numerous companies and research institutes presented themselves in an accompanying exhibition.
