Save the date for SINTEFs annual event in Aviation Research.
The RIMA network has in total 8 mill EUR to support European companies in developing and demonstrating new robotics (and drone) technologies within inspection and maintenance. SINTEF arranges a webinar the to present how Norwegian businesses can benefit from the up-to 150 kEUR per consortium opportunity offered by RIMA in a second call for proposals which opens in December 2020.
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.
The project is articulated around two SESAR Solutions, emphasising all of the key airport processes. Integration of airports into the ATM network will be addressed through sharing information in a timely manner between the network operations plan and the individual AOPs using SWIM technology.
Aircraft noise unquestionably causes annoyance, but reactions to a given noise exposure vary wildly. The Norwegian Defence Estates Agency and SINTEF ICT Acoustics have teamed up to strengthen the connection between the aircraft noise situation and the annoyance response of airport neighbours.
