Constance, June 09, 2021 - The Constance-based startup Unisphere wins the German Mobility Award 2021 in the Best Practice category. Experts from business, science, society, and politics selected the winners of this year's competition from over 300 submissions. With its innovative technology automating drone and air taxi flights, Unisphere convinced the jury and is thus among the winners of the German Mobility Award 2021.

Unisphere develops a digital platform that transfers pilot know-how and decision-making mechanisms into software. This allows to increase automation across all phases of drone and air taxi operations and is a key technology to make flights of unmanned aircraft safe and efficient. A digital twin of a flight combines a 4D trajectory with high-resolution weather data, aircraft performance models and operational limitation creating an accurate representation of the actual flight conditions. This data set is the baseline for automated decision-making replacing pilot activities with technology to enable autonomous flight operations of the future.

“We are very proud to have won the German Mobility Award 2021.” said Christoph Schlettig, CEO of Unisphere. “Our digital platform enables industries without aviation expertise to integrate unmanned aviation into their value chain. The award is a strong confirmation of our work and a motivator for the whole team”.
