Consortium

The 5G!Drones consortium has been formed having in mind the complete ecosystem of UAV and 5G (Verticals, Providers, Manufacturers and complementary industries), and is composed of a number of partners able to tackle the challenges related with the execution of trials of UAV use cases on top of 5G infrastructures. Due to the multidisciplinary nature of the project, e.g. UAV, trial deployments, results analysis, virtualisation capabilities of network functions on 5G networks, and provision and operation of dedicated slices, the consortium is well-balanced in order to guarantee the successful achievement of the proposed project objectives. The composition of the consortium has been decided considering partners with different backgrounds and interests that can cover all the required technical expertise in the fields addressed by the project, including validation from the perspective of real users. Specially, the project and its use cases have been defined by Verticals and they will be executed in close collaboration with the 5G and UAV industries, along with the help of the academia. As a result, the 5G!DRONES consortium represents an excellent mixture of industrial and academic profiles from all over Europe, covering Verticals (Airbus, Thales, Hepta Airborne, CAFA Tech, Alerion, UMS, INVOLI, Frequentis), commercial network Operators (Orange France, Orange Poland, COSMOTE), Networking industry (NOKIA), SMEs (INFOLYSiS, Robots.Experts, DroneRadar), outstanding EU Research Centres (EURECOM, DEMOKRITOS) and renowned Universities (UO and AU). The consortium also includes 5 partners operating an ICT-17 site (EURECOM, ORANGE, COSMOTE, Municipality of Egaleo and DEMOKRITOS).
