HHLA Sky Showcases Advanced Drone Solutions At DronePORT Opening


As part of the dronePORT opening in Hamburg, HHLA Sky, a subsidiary of Hamburger Hafen und Logistik AG (HHLA), presented its cutting-edge solutions for efficient drone operations. The dronePORT Hamburg, Europe’s first ground infrastructure for unmanned aviation and mobile sensor technology, was inaugurated by the Hamburg Port Authority (HPA), the Hamburg Police, and Hamburg Aviation.

Advanced Drone Operations for Port Inspection

HHLA Sky is providing drones for inspecting the Port of Hamburg and its shipping lanes, along with the technology needed for automated drone control and management. Their Integrated Control Center enables safe and scalable drone operations, making flights beyond visual range (BVLOS) possible. This technology enhances efficiency and cybersecurity in drone operations.

Integrated Control Center: Automation at Its Best

The Integrated Control Center, a Mobile Robot Management system, allows highly automated and monitored drone flights over long distances without visual contact with the pilot. This system is crucial for inspecting infrastructure such as bridges, roads, and large areas. It enables one operator to oversee multiple drone flights simultaneously, with a capacity of more than 100 BVLOS-automated flights at once.

Collaborative Efforts for Innovation

Alongside HHLA Sky, other notable partners like HPA, Hamburg Police, Hamburg’s State Agency for Roads, Bridges and Waterways (LSBG), Beagle Systems, Flynex, ZAL Center of Applied Aeronautical Research, HAW Hamburg, and EmQopter showcased their projects and products at the dronePORT opening. These collaborations highlight the region’s commitment to advancing unmanned aviation and sensor technology through initiatives like CITYAM and BLU-Space.
