The third edition of the event took place at the ICAO Headquarters in Montreal, Canada from 12 to 14 November 2019.
The Symposium was sponsored by ICAO and dedicated to UAS - Unmanned Aircraft Systems - industrial technologies.
In the spirit of DRONE ENABLE, the symposium featured a new initiative to enable the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) Member States to highlight the regulatory developments and technological advancements of the unmanned aircraft system (UAS) and UAS traffic management (UTM) industry in their respective States and to showcase them on the world stage.
D-Flight’s participation in the international Event provided the opportunity to generate cost-effective networking opportunities and dissemination of information on the company and its strategic and operational objectives to the symposium attendees. The Company attended the Symposium with its own exhibiting space, hosting both ENAC and the Italian Air Force partner logos.
D-Flight’s CEO, Cristiano Baldoni, presented a paper to the Symposium assembly, jointly developed with ENAC with the title “ITALY submission on ICAO Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) - Request for Information (Drone Enable 3).
D-Flight is the public-private company created by ENAV - the Italian Air Navigation service provider - in November 2018 to develop the U-space platform for the provision of services for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), commonly called "drones". The Company is controlled by ENAV, with a 60% stake, with the remainder of the share capital held by a group of leading Italian technological partners.
D-Flight is the Italian industry's response to the challenge launched by the European Union. The U-space platform - developed by D-Flight - will allow the timely development and deployment of U-space, in order to safely and seamlessly integrate complex drones’ operations within the civil aviation airspace.
