e2E gather experts to plan the future for SATCOM and small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS)

Satellite

After the recent successful launch and “Over-the-Air” trial of e2Eaccess UAS-I with Callen-Lenz, e2E are readying themselves to roll-out large scale Beyond Visual Line-ofSight(BVLOS) trials in 2019.

e2E held their inaugural BVLOS Workshop focused on the integration of SatCom within current and future sUAS to an invite-only group of stakeholders, including British Telecom, Deutsche Telekom, Inmarsat and several UAS manufacturers and operators.

The Workshop, hosted by our Sales Team at the e2E Headquarters in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, and introduced by Justin Pringle, Innovation and Development Lead for UAS Solutions has raised significant interest.

One of the attendees, David Guerin from the Lake Victoria Challenge was at hand to offer his educated insight into his concerns regarding safe flight management for BVLOS missions in areas with limited terrestrial communications. As an advocate for safe drone use David added: “I found the Workshop particularly worthwhile from the perspective of a practitioner attempting to solve challenges”.

Our BVLOS Workshop was created to bring together representatives of the UAS industry; manufacturers, regulators and end-users. This was the first of its kind where attendees shared their unique perspective and took part in opendiscussion about the future, concerns, and needs of a safer UAS industry.

Our next BVLOS Workshop will be hosted by Inmarsat, the global satcom service operator, our key technology partner, on Wednesday 27th February 2019 at their HQ in London. If you would like to attend the workshop, please contact bvlos@e2egroup.co.uk
