Welcome to the ZIM – Innovation Network „Omniborne Systems - New opportunities for drones“

Managed by T+I Consult

About us

The internationally oriented ZIM Innovation Network “Omniborne Systems – New opportunities for drones” aims to create the necessary technical – technological basis for the demand-oriented expansion of the use and application possibilities of drones, especially in the sectors of agriculture and forestry, environment as well as the stable energy supply of drones/ aviation systems.
As a result of the planned R&D projects, the network partners aim to achieve significant unique selling points and competitive advantages on the international market as well as technological leadership. The cooperation of highly innovative SMEs as well as scientific institutions from 3 continents and 4 countries ensures comprehensive access to the latest technologies.

Several projects in preparation

The aim of the network is to expand and improve drone systems, especially for agriculture and forestry, but also for other areas of application, such as industry, transport or environmental monitoring. In addition to improving drone technology through new manufacturing processes and optimized lightweight construction as well as the development of new drone systems, such as amphibian drones, the fields of application are also to be expanded through new and optimized sensor technology and the infrastructure for safe operation.
