Industry information

Owing to its rapid development, the Polish unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV, drone) market has become increasingly popular over the last years. The drone sector was named as “forward-looking” in one of the recent government strategies for the development of Polish economy. This will further enhance the expansion of the sector and the advancement of technologies used by local manufacturers.

Around 300 companies were present in Polish done market in 2019. According to experts’ estimates, in 2019 Polish manufacturers produced drones worth 39.5 mln USD. The sector is projected to furtherly expand by showing a yearly growth rate of around 10% during the next 10 years.

The drone production sector in Poland is divided into drone manufacturers (with or without their own research facilities), start-ups, creative companies which design platforms for new applications or components, spin-offs of companies developing technologies or integrating solutions for their own needs, component manufacturers (e.g. microprocessors, sensors), software producers and scientific institutes or university spin-offs developing platforms and components as a part of grant funded initiatives.

Polish manufacturers provide a wide range of drone models in various sizes, weights and payload carrying capabilities which support a broad range of commercial applications, public order services and offer military solutions. Drones produced by Polish companies are being used in various sectors – agriculture, entertainment, infrastructure, logistics, security, tourism and transport among others.

It is noteworthy that Poland was the first country in Europe to introduce operational infrastructure supporting drone traffic management – the PANSA UTM system. The main task of the system is to manage drone flights in Polish airspace and provide their safe separation from conventional air traffic. The functionality of the system has already been confirmed. In 2020 locally manufactured drones were used by Polish institutions to support the fight against COVID-19 pandemic.

Camfly

Camfly

CamFLY was founded in 2018 as a training centre for future drone pilots. From the beginning of our activity, we are focused on quality and professionalism, which is why our trainings are conducted by instructors-practitioners actively operating in the drone industry.

The Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) sector is becoming the most dynamic sector of the global aviation industry. Drone technologies and their use belong to one of the twelve flagship projects of the Strategy for Responsible Development (SRD). The choice of this innovation market as one of the priorities is not surprising if we take into account its size in financial terms.

In addition to training, under which our students are authorized to legally perform aviation operations, we also conduct specialist training, during which we teach the practical use of drones in such industries as construction, energy, photovoltaics, geodesy, and agriculture.

We are also providing additional services such as:

  • Assessment of the state of plant vegetation for the agricultural industry - for this purpose we are using drones with multispectral cameras
  • Thermal imaging inspection using a drone - we can quickly and accurately inspect the surface of the roofs or the side surfaces and diagnose the loss of heat. We are using thermal imaging cameras to inspect photovoltaic installations.

Camfly's mission is to popularize the use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles, in particular in the agricultural industry, which translates directly into increasing environmental protection. In addition, we have the TGLSQA quality certificate which confirms the quality of provided services. We are also certified in the Civil Aviation Authority as a drone training centre.

Spectre Solutions

Spectre Solutions

The Spectre Solutions team consists of constructors, specialists, programmers and managers with long market experience. In 2015. started investment and research activities. Soon after, conceptual work on own UAV started, which was reflected in the first VTOL drone model: SPECTRE-1. Against the background of competitors operating on the Polish market, Spectre Solutions is distinguished by the fact that it maintains an ultra-light cost model, allowing almost the entire current financial result to be allocated to R&D works. The current owners of the company with their own extensive experience and knowledge, both technical and managerial, guarantee a rational approach to the challenges posed to oneself and bring them to the end in time and quality. Currently, as part of another research project, measuring equipment dedicated to SPECTRE-1 is being developed for monitoring public roads (including automatic measurement of speed and distance between vehicles). Spectre Solutions cooperates with CEDD (Central European Drone Demonstrator), and in the implementation of R&D works it cooperates with the Warsaw University of Technology (Faculty of MEiL and Physics), Warsaw University of Life Sciences and the National Institute of Telecommunications.
