Complex system integration
The number of people travelling internationally has seen exponential growth in the last fifty years (notwithstanding COVID-19), which has resulted in increased congestion in airports, and more importantly, airspace. With the advent of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS), this is only going to increase. By 2030, it is estimated that drone ownership in the UK will exceed 100,000 systems, with a significant number operating alongside their manned equivalent (outside the visual range of their pilot), which will only exacerbate the congestion problem. Whilst some technological advances offer interim solutions, nothing currently offers a safe solution for complimentary systems delivering passenger and freight movement. Modini works with airspace regulators, Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and global delivery organisations to understand, design, implement and test procedures and solutions in response to the world’s most current and complex airspace constraints.
