Small drones - great impact. Flying mini robots become increasingly important for industrial applications, fire brigades and rescue services as well as for sports, entertainment and education.

Fire brigades and rescue services are increasingly working with small drones to obtain relevant information quickly and easily during operations - without putting their own teams at risk. As industrial equipment is maintained, the smaller sensors provide useful data for inspecting pipes, shafts and storage facilities. The mini drones began their success story in sports. The DroneMasters Academy uses them to develop a variety of learning formats to make digitalization comprehensible. For the first time, the DroneMasters Mini Summit puts the great benefits of these small systems at the centre of a global conference.

The DroneMasters Mini Summit dedicates an entire day to small drones. The Summit will be opened by Thomas Jarzombek, the Federal Government Coordinator for Aerospace, Digital Economy and Start-ups of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. The programme offers impulses from experts and open workshops. Speakers include Franz Petter, Operations Department of the Hamburg Fire Department and Professor Christian Janke, Program Chair for Unmanned Systems at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University. A particular focus is on the role of artificial intelligence and 5G for system automation.

In preparation for a 24-hour challenge, the performance of small drones will be tested for the first time in continuous operation.
