ILA 2022 - Review

From June 22 to 26, 2022, the ILA took place in Berlin. At the joint booth of the states of Berlin-Brandenburg, the CURPAS network was represented with a booth on the topic of the use of unmanned aerial systems. With the support of TITUS Research GmbH, a workshop on "Drones (UAS) part of the airspace" and a meeting of the European Drones Cooperation were organized.

It was three very successful trade visitor days (Wednesday to Friday) and two eventful visitor days (Saturday and Sunday) for the CURPAS network. Although the main focus of the ILA is on manned aviation, the interest in the topic of unmanned aerial systems was clearly noticeable.
