According to market studies, the global commercial drone market size, which includes BVLOS drones, is expected to exceed USD 129.23 billion by 2025. BVLOS drones are expected to contribute significantly to this growth due to their extended operational capabilities. Major driving factors for the market growth include technological advancements in drone technologies, relaxed regulations in certain countries, and an increasing number of use-cases where BVLOS operations provide superior efficiency and effectiveness. Industries such as agriculture, oil and gas, power and utilities are extensively adopting BVLOS drone technology for functions like precision agriculture, infrastructure inspection, surveillance, and mapping. Despite its potential, the BVLOS drone market also faces challenges, including stringent regulatory standards, need for advanced sense-and-avoid systems, and concerns over data privacy and security.

ADACORSA, an ambitious project spanning 42 months from 1/05/2020 to 1/11/2023, involves 49 partners from 12 countries, making up 8 Work Packages (WPs) and 10 Supply Chains (SCs).

Led by the Infineon Technologies AG, the project encompasses total costs of up to 42 million Euros, with an approximate European Union contribution of 12 million Euros.




Leverage European technology, innovating the way drones serve as an efficient and secure part of the mobility mix. We aim to establish drones as reliable vehicles with specialized capabilities, particularly in extended Beyond Visual Line Of Sight (BVLOS) operations.


Unleash the immense potential that BVLOS drone operations hold, propelling the regulatory acceptance of drone use to new heights. We aspire to bridge the gap between the automotive and drone industries, thereby reducing deployment costs through the use of automotive sensing technology, commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) communication technologies, and services. By integrating AI and data analytics, we aim to revolutionize future air mobility, embracing the efficiency of automotive-style production for components and subsystems.

Join us on this exciting journey, where we push boundaries, challenge conventions, and pave the way for a future where drones become a staple part of our mobility landscape. Stay tuned for the latest updates on our progress, key findings, and much more!
