DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung and Unifly NV Sign Cooperation Agreement to Jointly Develop and Market DFS Drone App

DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung and Unifly NV have signed a cooperation agreement at the World ATM Congress 2017 in Madrid to jointly develop and market a DFS drone app to be released on the German market later in 2017. This app will allow operators of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) to determine where they can operate without posing a threat to manned aviation. The cooperation between DFS and Unifly to develop this app is the gateway to finding an effective technological solution with a broad range of applications that will enable UAS pilots to operate more safely in uncontrolled airspace. A crucial component of the DFS drone app will be Unifly's cloud-based software platform. This platform allows drone operators constant access to an interactive map where they can easily and reliably obtain information about areas where drones can be used safely and legally as well as areas where their use is restricted or prohibited. The drone app should be available in Germany in the second quarter of 2017. Remote pilots who use the app to register with DFS may use the basic version without charge.

Aireon Signs Memorandum of Agreement with Deutsche Flugsicherung to Evaluate the Safety, Efficiency and Cost Benefits

Aireon announced that it has signed a Memorandum of Agreement with Deutsche Flugsicherung to evaluate the safety, efficiency and cost benefits of space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) in their airspace. The MoA will allow Deutsche Flugsicherung to evaluate options for potentially optimizing the replacement of some legacy equipment that requires expensive upkeep. In addition, they will investigate the establishment of an independent contingency service for enhanced redundancy, which can be used to have a consistent air traffic surveillance feed.
