Drones protecting the grid – UAS Norway Fagdag
The future of aviation is unmanned. But unmanned aerial vehicles – or drones – are not just of interest to the aviation industry. Nearly every industrial and commercial sector has been experimenting with drone technology over the past 5 years, and now drones are steadily being introduced to replace less efficient practices. This is no more true than for the energy sector, where day-to-day operations centre around inspection, monitoring, and maintenance of extensive infrastructure networks – from platforms to pipelines to powerlines – that are often difficult and/or costly to access.
New allergy test promises safer antibiotic use
Allergies to antibiotics are the commonest form of medication allergies and, in the worst cases, can result in anaphylaxis and death. SINTEF is participating in the development of a new allergy test that will make it easier to provide patients with safe and correct treatments.

European aircraft to use satellite communication
The European aviation sector is planning to introduce satellite communication between aircraft and the ground, resulting in fewer zig-zag flight paths, reductions in CO2 emissions, and saved time and money. Norwegian researchers are looking into data security risks.
Norwegian researchers make European air traffic more efficient
Many major European airports are unable to expand. This means that aircraft departures, arrivals and surface movements will have to be speeded up. A Norwegian system designed to make all airport movements more efficient is tested in Hamburg, and at Arlanda in Stockholm and Charles de Gaulle in Paris.
