Dutch drone manufacturer Acecore Technologies was invited to demonstrate their drone delivery solution at the Netherlands’ largest airport, Schiphol Amsterdam. The Dutch ASNP (LVNL) saw the opportunity to test several innovative drone applications after air traffic was greatly reduced as a result of the ongoing CoVID-19 crisis.
Working together with Dutch Drone Delta, Schiphol aimed to test the technical as well as the social aspect of drones flying at an active airport. Under the temporary exemption and in close contact with the ASNP, drones were allowed to fly in the CTR to test applications such as runway inspection and delivery of airplane parts across the airport.
Acecore demonstrated their tried-and-true Neo octocopter that offers a 25 minute flight time with added motor and critical component redundancy, as well as AES256 encryption. The drone was fitted with Acecore’s maglock cargo module.
