The National Department of Traffic in Spain (DGT) has awarded Star Defense Logistics & Engineering (SDLE) the contract for the supply of 28 multicopters. The remotely piloted aircrafts will be used for highway traffic surveillance and regulation.
The Spanish DGT began using drones to improve air traffic management in 2019, and is going to expand its fleet of unmanned aircraft to cover regulatory needs, especially on road sections where there is greatest risk of accidents.
The drones will reinforce the monitoring that is already done from DGT helicopters, especially during operations with more roadtraffic and in areas where more security is required due to the concentration of cyclists, motorcyclists and pedestrians.
