Airbus Group and Local Motors announced the Phase II partnership, focusing on building the Airbus Drone Services Platform (ADSP).

The ADSP is a digital distribution platform for drone-based apps and services. The development of the ADSP began with a Rapid Co-creation Initiative at the InterDrone 2016 International Drone Conference and Exhibition held in Las Vegas, September 7-9.

Phase II is a continuation of the companies’ cooperation, which commenced in April 2016 and resulted in the highly successful “Airbus Cargo Drone Challenge”, a co-creation competition for the next generation of commercial drones.
