・ Hitachi, Ltd.: R&D of functional expansion of flight status management
・ Weathernews Inc.: R&D of functional expansion of weather information provision
Contract Type Entrustment


① Development of flight planning to integrated flight control function and simple registration function of dynamic information

② Development of response in the occurrence of server failure
・ Monitoring server programs, etc.
・ Consider of recovery methods and development of functions in the event of a disaster

③ Development of processing distributed technology for integrated flight control function

④ Development of technology to utilize map information and weather information nationwide
・ Development of technologies to provide information necessary for the safe operation of unmanned aircrafts using map information and weather observers that have been developed nationwide



In order to implement services using unmanned aircrafts in social, R&D was carried out to solve a variety of issues, including the extension of integrated flight control function developed in the previous "R&D of flight control systems and collision avoidance technologies for unmanned aircrafts (FY2017-2019)", deployment to a large number of regions, identification of problems in each region, and consider of solutions. Demonstrate results at the Fukushima RTF in 2021.
