We’ll show how drones can be used to help assess damage and maintenance needs for critical national infrastructure, such as power lines, railway tracks and cell towers.
Project XCelerate is part of a Future Flight Challenge Fund, backed by the Government’s Industrial Strategy. We’re bringing together a number of UK tech start-ups to establish the UK’s first commercial drone zone.
