At the AUS&R Unmanned Systems and Robotics conference and exhibition that will be held on July 5, 2021, at Expo Tel Aviv, the Israel national drone project will be publicly exposed for the first time, a whole session will be dedicated to autonomous mobility at the urban airspace, with this project and live demonstrations in particular.

At the conference, we will elaborate on technological and regulatory developments in this field, which is expected to revolutionize the urban way of life in the following years.

The session will include, among others, live demonstrations that will be performed by the companies that take part in the project.

The national drone project for drone delivery in Israel is run by Israel Innovation Authority, Israel’s Ministry of Transport (MoT), Ayalon Highways, the Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI), and the Smart Transportation Administration.

The drones in the project are designed for various missions, including the delivery of food, medication, and medical supply, as well as agricultural services. The project will advance drone operation capabilities for public use, and decrease traffic congestion on the roads in a secure, managed way.

The first demonstrations were held last March, as part of an eight-show series to be held in 2021-2022. During the last demonstration, a large number of drones were showcased, operated by several companies flown over the city of Hadera, managed by one centralized, autonomous Unmanned Aircraft System Traffic Management (UTM) located in the traffic and air traffic control center of the Ayalon Highway Company. The exercise was designed to test the establishment of a country-wide drone network that will enable the transportation of cargo in the urban metropolitan airspace through smart, innovative airspace traffic management. 

AUS&R conference and exhibition organized by iHLS in collaboration with AEAI and AUVSI Israel is a business and academic meetup designed to discuss the most updated technologies in the unmanned systems field in Israel and abroad.

Conference Chairman – Col. (res.) Ofer Haruvi, an expert active in the remotely manned systems field for over 30 years.

This year’s conference will focus on:  

  • Autonomous mobility in the urban environment
  • Autonomous systems in the modern battlefield
  • End technologies in the service of autonomous systems
