Societal challenges

With the Xpedition New Horizons project, Antea Group wants to draw attention to the challenges we face as a society when it comes to sustainability. The idea is to show how drones can be used for safety in the near future and what valuable information this can provide for making our living environment more sustainable. Antea Group is also using the drone flight to celebrate the company’s 70th anniversary.

For the execution of the record flight, Antea Group has entered into a partnership with AirHub and DroneQ Robotics.
