Aviation Innovation Development Association (AIDA)
The Japan Aviation Innovation Development Association (AIDA) started activities in October 2018 with the aim of promoting aviation innovations covering all aspects of air activities such as aviation technology, policies and industries. It is led by Prof Suzuki (University of Tokyo). Today, it brings together all major players in Japan, including 27 world-leading companies and organisations.
This Committee was launched as a working group at AIDA on April 2020 with ANA, JAL, HAPS Mobile, KHI, Tokyo R&D, Aerodyne, Aero Asahi, Deloitte Tohmatsu Consulting, MRI, ENRI, JAXA, NICT, JCAB, JCG, MIAC, METI, Fukushima RTF and other very motivated participants and observers for roadmapping the future with RPAS. (Chairperson: Shinji Suzuki, University of Tokyo. Secretary-General: Hiroko Nakamura, the University of Tokyo )
Reduce the work load of pilots is one of motivations behind RPAS development. UAS performance growth extend the imagination of use of airspace (low and high altitude) such as disaster prevention, long range delivery/monitoring service and so on.
