NEDO Holds "DRESS Project Forum" at "Japan Drone 2018" Event

March 23, 2018

On March 22, NEDO held a "DRESS Project Forum" as part of the "Japan Drone 2018" event at Makuhari Messe. DRESS stands for "Drones and Robots for Ecologically Sustainable Societies".

This is a project that NEDO and several companies are conducting with the aim of creating opportunities in the drone business. At the forum, they presented the latest research results from the project, which are expected to accelerate the practical use of drones. These included advanced drones that can fly for long periods of time or fly continuously in special environments; operation control system in the fields of logistics, disaster response and security services; weather information systems and geographic information systems for flying drones safely; and a quasi-zenith satellite system for determining a drone's current location. Approximately 430 people visited the forum and expressed great interest.
