Just as U-space has specifically been designed as an enabling framework to facilitate scalable VLOS and BVLOS drone operations in even the most congested airspaces and over all types of environments, the BURDI project has been specifically designed to enable a speedy yet all-encompassing real live reference implementation of this U-space framework in Belgium, endorsed by one of its neighboring countries. The project will be implemented mainly around the three main civil controlled airports in Belgium: Brussels, Antwerp and Liège, complemented with a zone East of Antwerp currently tagged as Helicopter Training Area.

Viticulture worldwide faces a dual challenge: the effects of the Climate Change (CC) and the preparation of vine growers to employ new technological solutions to face the upcoming changes and emerging needs. Interactions between plant resistance traits and abiotic stress tolerance may represent the most substantial impact of climate change on plant productivity. Furthermore a study of Eurostat reveals that 67% of the pesticides in Europe are used in viticulture. This is where SmartVitiNet comes in, to offer solutions for precision viticulture that can be an alternative, ensuring continued crop health monitoring, timely and targeted interventions. SmartVitiNet stands for Smart and Sustainable Drone-assisted Viticulture Excellence Network.
