Linkoping university (LiU)

Linköping University is Sweden’s fifth largest university. The work in the project will be performed at the division of Communications and Transport Systems. Graduates from the division’s Air Transport and Logistics program work in various establishments within air transportation, providing close connections to the industry. The tasks will be run within Academic Excellence in ATM Research (AEAR) group (reads “air” group) operating under strategic cooperation agreement between LiU and LFV (Swedish Air Navigation Service Provider). AEAR is the academically strongest ATM and UTM research group in the Nordic countries (group members are among SESAR Young Scientist Award recipients in 2019 and 2020), with proven record and established international recognition in both ATM-and UTM-related research.

The Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre

The Royal Netherlands Aerospace Centre (NLR) is the national research centre in the Netherlands for identifying, developing and applying advanced technological knowledge in the area of aerospace. NLR activities are relevant to society, market-oriented, and they are carried out on a non-profit basis. NLR strengthens the innovativeness, competitiveness and effectiveness of governments and businesses. The mission of NLR is to increase the sustainability, safety, efficiency and effectiveness aerospace, and in particular air transport. NLR is renowned for its leading expertise, professional approach and independent consultancy. The activities of NLR span the full spectrum of Research, Development, Test and Evaluation (RDT&E). These activities are supported by NLR’s impressive array of facilities, including numerous aircraft, RPAS and ATC simulators; Drone Test Center with dedicated RPAS testing airspace; research aircraft; composite material laboratories; and a wide range of wind tunnels. NLR bridges the gap between research and practical applications and it aims to link science, industry and government. NLR was founded in 1919 and currently employs about 650 people, ranging from aircraft engineers to psychologists.


Unifly is the global leading provider of Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) technology. Unifly’s award winning UTM platform is already in use all over the world. Unifly’s digital platform provides national and local authorities with the platform needed to identify and manage drone traffic in their area. Authorities can monitor and manage drone traffic in their airspace. Drone pilots can plan, get approval and check the legal status of their flight. To guarantee safe drone traffic, it is vital to know the exact position of drones. Unifly’s Blip is an electronic device that acts as a license plate for drones. This way drones integrate safely into the airspace. Unifly’s step-by-step approach to the implementation of UTM offers results quickly in an environment that can grow in scale and in functionality.
