The MyGalileoDrone Competition is centered on stimulating drone application developers and service providers to learn about the Galileo potential and create new tools that could be exploited also in future projects.
For emerging winners, the contest will allow contestants to have innovative applications and services based on drones and powered by Galileo, out in the market and being used in the real world, hence showcasing Galileo performance and benefits, fostering its introduction into this new market.
The goal of the competition is to foster the understanding of the use of Galileo in a broad sense.
The competition is open to integration of Galileo in any of the drone components or other equipment supporting the operations, that is, the flying platform (autopilot or other payload), the ground control station, or any other devices supporting the implementation of the application, such as smartphones, as well as external ones, such as U-Space services.
Applications targeting any of the following development areas are expected:
Personal transportation services in urban areas, in the longer term
Drones supporting package delivery, as support to post services or transport of goods, from warehouses to dedicated landing sites, or to customer’s home in urban environment in the longer term.
Infrastructure, Inspection Power grid, transport network energy distribution, solar panels inspection, offshore platforms, wind farms, etc.
Toys, aero-modelling, self-tracking/filming drones (first person view), drone racing, etc.
Provision of a situational awareness in maritime areas through long-endurance drones.
Precision agriculture, crop/field/soil monitoring, variable rate applications, livestock tracking, insurance, forest monitoring & management, etc.
Cadastral surveying, mining, marine surveying, GIS, photogrammetry, etc.
Support to SAR (Search and Rescue) operations, firefighting, other natural disaster monitoring (e.g. floods, forest fires, earthquakes, etc), patrol, security, etc.
Meteorological monitoring, atmospheric measurements, swarm techniques, general R&D, etc.
Flight planning, tracking, assistance to deconfliction, separation, surveillance, traffic information, capacity management, interface with ATC and manned aviation
Applications supporting e-identification, geoawareness, geofencing, operation planning, detect and avoid, incident reporting as well as other supporting future drone operations.
Calibration of aviation nav-aids, asset management, advertisement, marketing, entertainment, etc.
The following criteria will be considered for the assessment of the projects along the three steps of the contest:
The proposals will be evaluated by the GSA evaluation board composed by GSA experts of the main innovation areas who will choose a maximum of thirty (30) projects to proceed to the second step: development phase M1.
Selected teams will be announced on the official contest site and promoted in other official channels.
Opt-out at any time. No strings attached.
