The UAS Test Center is located at HCA Airport near Odense. In 2016 SDU purchased the large airport hangar-building and began a total renovation of the premises to house the state-of-the-art laboratories and test center facilities that we find today.
SDU UAS Test Center is supported by the Danish government as part of the UAS-ability project. UAS ability is a collaboration between Danish universities, with the aim to ensure a national research infrastructure for drones.
Part of UAS Denmark
SDU UAS Center is a partner of UAS Denmark, which is a national network organisation for over 150 drone companies. The other partners of UAS Denmark are; Erhvervshus Fyn (Business Funen), Odense Municipality, and HCA Airport.
The Danish National Drone Strategy
SDU UAS Test Center, UAS ability and UAS Denmark is a result of the Danish National Drone Strategy that was launched in September 2016.
