Droniq CEO Jan-Eric Putze on Making a UAV Ecosystem


Droniq CEO Jan-Eric PutzeAt Amsterdam Drone Week, DRONELIFE had the chance for an unique interview with Jan-Eric Putze, CEO of German UTM firm Droniq.  Began in 2016 as Related Drones, a analysis venture of Deutsche Telecom and DFS, Germany’s air navigation service supplier, Droniq affords a mixture of {hardware} and software program options designed to assist combine business drones into the airspace.

Droniq CEO Putze has a background in manned aviation which has fed his ardour for the unmanned business.  “I’ve been a pilot since 1995 – I’m a business pilot and a flight teacher,” says Putze.  “I see the necessity to combine drones within the airspace: and to have the chance to do this in a brand new market is a as soon as in a lifetime alternative.”

Putze can be the President of the Alliance for New Mobility Europe (AME): shaped simply final month to deliver collectively stakeholders within the European UAV and eVTOL market to drive work on standardization and integration ahead.

Whereas international airspace authorities have made vital progress on U-House and UTM tasks, requirements nonetheless lag – and regulation nonetheless has an extended solution to go.  That’s simply the character of the enterprise, says Putze, however stakeholders can collaborate to maneuver the method ahead.

“Now we have a extremely regulated air surroundings and a extremely unregulated drone world,” Putze feedback.  “We’re attempting to come back collectively.”

“The drone economic system innovates utilizing trial and error – and that’s why it develops so quick, however manned aviation doens’t work that means.  Manned aviation has a confirmed strategy: you don’t get security totally free.  We can not make manned aviation insecure, and it may be arduous to mix these approaches.”

“The drone business and manned aviation can be taught from one another, by beginning at smaller airports: coaching and constructing knowledge, to grasp the deconfliction points.  That is one thing that we should always undoubtedly do.  [Commercial drone operation] has a threat, and we now have to just accept that we now have a threat.”

Droniq CEODroniq and DFS developed Germany’s first drone site visitors system in testing U-House areas on the Port of Hamburg in 2021.  As a U-House Service Supplier (USSP) Droniq acts because the coordinator for drone site visitors in U-House areas, the contact particular person for drone pilots.  DFS acts because the Widespread Data Service Supplier (CISP): sending Droniq related airspace and air site visitors knowledge.  Droniq’s drone-agnostic tracker {hardware} sends info from the drone sensors into the ANSP, offering a unified view of air site visitors.

Whereas Germany’s U-House system is already in testing, different European member states could take longer than the required January 2023 deadline for implenting U-House areas.  That’s an issue for the European drone business, says the Droniq CEO.

“If we need to make drones a viable product, we now have to ascertain requirements and make them protected,” he says.

“Laws can not preserve tempo with the know-how.  I don’t know after we’ll see the primary U-House, however we now have to start out studying now.  We can not miss collaborating within the business.”  Till rules are shifted to accommodate drone know-how, says Putze, the European drone business could also be held again as industrial prospects anticipate clarification.

“Why ought to business make investments in the event that they don’t know what they’re going to must do to adjust to rules?” he says.  “Now we have a confirmed means of inspecting a pipeline: rules presently specify use of a helicopter.  That sort of regulation might want to change.”

As U-House is below improvement, Droniq works with business drone corporations to assist them perceive present rules and discover new alternatives.   Their efforts to combine unmanned techniques into the airspace have given the corporate an inside view on the way to negotiate the quickly shifting panorama of business drone operations in Europe.

“Now we have a mixed view of manned and unmanned aviation – we now have the whole image,” says Putze.  “That is fairly distinctive.  We don’t concern the problem of getting any drone into the air.  We all know what it takes to satisfy concepts within the business drone business.”
