Drones Solution lands in Lisbon to take-off the use of drones in engineering
Aerial robots, popularly known as DRONES, are one of the disruptive technologies enabling the Fourth Industrial Revolution. It is the new civil aviation for the benefit of society, revolutionizing areas such as diagnostic and inspection engineering, geotechnology, agriculture, delivery and soon the transport of people through eVTOL, which is urban mobility through electric take-off aircraft. and vertical landing.
Drones Solution (DS) is a company that combines a strong aeronautical culture with an extensive background in engineering, a pioneer in the use of DRONE technology, being founded 7 years ago in Brazil. It starts its activities in Portuguese lands, incubated at TECLABS. This relationship with TECLABS is ideal to fulfill the purpose of contributing to the training of future professionals for a market that demands new knowledge and skills, aligned with the new challenges that arise.
