About SDU UAS Center

SDU UAS Center is located at SDU Campus in Odense and at the nearby HCA Airport, where we run SDU UAS Test Center with laboratories and test facilities for drones.

The center was established in 2015 as part of SDU’s strategic research focus areas, which implies drones.


We conduct research in drone technologies and future drone applications within areas such as inspection, energy, healthcare, agriculture, and emergency management.

We are an interdisciplinary team of researches with specializations within e.g. design and construction, robotics, computer vision, software and embedded systems. Together we create drone solutions to the benefit of society.


The center offers the MSc in Engineering in Robot Systems with specialization in Drones and Autonomous Systems.


We cooperate with the established industry as well as start-up companies in our research projects, student projects, and in the SDU UAS Test Center.
