Safety Management Systems for a safe and sustainable growth in the drone and Advanced Air Mobility sector
Over 100 years, the civil aviation industry has advanced to become one of the safest and most reliable modes of transportation. The aviation landscape continues to evolve as new technologies, such as automation and Artificial Intelligence, enable more flexible, environmental, and cost-effective innovative solutions for operations within the existing ecosystem.
There is a drive amongst the UK drone industry to open more use cases and deliver increased benefits to stakeholders and the public. Often this requires that drone operations are conducted Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) of the drone operator, are closer to people, are covering larger distance by larger equipment, and/or carrying payload.
In collaboration with Cranfield Airport Operations Limited, Project BLUEPRINT has been selected to take part in the UK (United Kingdom) Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) Temporary Reserved Area (TRA) Regulatory Sandbox, which will allow us to work closely with the subject matter experts within the CAA to progress towards our objectives of successfully trialling integrated BVLOS (Beyond Visual Line Of Sight) drone operations within UK airspace.
Future air mobility organisations are developing innovative and disruptive technologies and services, at a pace and magnitude not experienced since the beginning of aviation. These transformations are happening against a backdrop of social empowerment through the use of social media, Big Data and continuous 24-hour news cycles.
The introduction of drones and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) is rapidly changing the aviation ecosystem and has led to the development of many use cases that can bring huge benefits to society such as: medical deliveries, infrastructure inspections, logistics and search & rescue.
The skies are no longer just the domain of conventional fixed-wing aircraft and helicopters. With the rapid advancement of technology, drones and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) aircraft are shaping up to become an integral part of our modern sky.
PwC in its July 2022 report on Drones estimated that drones would save businesses an estimated £22bn by 2030 and contribute £45bn to the UK economy, not to mention carbon footprint reduction and job creation.
Ebeni’s success and growth over the last few years have been made possible thanks to the quality of its experienced safety engineers, and a very high level of customer satisfaction.
Secure by Design (SbD) is bringing widespread changes to how Information Security is done within MoD and one of the biggest impacts will be on In-Service Capabilities.
