The DRONTEX conference is a professional platform for sharing of experience and information among experts in unmanned technologies and representatives of state institutions and non-profit organisations from the V4 countries aiming to support drone economy development.
Konferencia DRONTEX má ambíciu vytvoriť odbornú platformu pre zdieľanie skúseností a informácií medzi odborníkmi pre bezpilotné technológie, predstaviteľmi štátnych a neziskových inštitúcií s cieľom podporiť rozvoj dronovej ekonomiky na Slovensku
V Asociácii Mám Dron vnímame obrovský potenciál bezpilotných technológií a ich využitia v rôznych druhoch priemyslu a služieb. V zahraničí táto téma rezonuje čoraz intenzívnejšie na odborných medzinárodných a lokálnych konferenciách a veľtrhoch. Aj to je znakom rozvoja, ktorý tento segment v dnešných časoch zažíva.
Keďže na Slovensku chýba podujatie podobného typu, veríme, že konferencia DRONTEX túto medzeru zaplní a ponúkne priestor pre komunikáciu a spoluprácu odborníkov z oblasti výroby, distribúcie a služieb spojených s UAV.
Konferenciu Drontex sme navrhli ako jednodňovú akciu, ktorá bude rozdelená do troch tematických blokov. V rámci nich na pódiu vystúpia odborníci z oblasti vývoja bezpilotných technológií, manažmentu bezpilotnej prevádzky a predstavitelia firiem ponúkajúcich UAV aplikácie pre geodéziu, kartografiu, energetiku a služby. V prípade úspechu nultého ročníka konferencie máme ambíciu pokračovať v nastavenej línii a vytvoriť tak na Slovensku tradíciu podujatia s vysokou pridanou hodnotou pre celú dronovú komunitu.

Mário Malatinec from the Flight Safety Department of the Air Force Headquarters will explain the rules for flying unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in the vicinity of military airports as stated in the amendment to the Act on the Armed Forces of the Slovak Republic no. 321/2002 Z. z.. Moreover, as drones become more and more affordable, he will talk about the increase in the number of UAS flights without a permit, the inability of the Slovak Republic to respond flexibly due to current legislation, and the impact of such UAS flights on air traffic safety.
Vladimír Kulpa and Matúš Grega from AOS SR will introduce the Training Organization for Unmanned Aircraft Systems operators, its position and operations, and its incorporation into the structure of AOS. They will also talk about the contents and designation of the certified course for members of the Department of Defense in BUQ I and BUQ II, the authorization and competences of a UAS operator within Armed Forces, and the potential for a training organization for BUQ III and BUQ IV and the expansion of its capacity by implementing synthetic training environment for both fixed and rotary wings.
The CAMCOPTER® S-100 is the most advanced tactical rotary wing Unmanned Air System available on the market.

Ákos Haramia from the company Aliter Technologies will introduce methods of using drones in supervision of large events using traditional and tethered drones, in securing connections in densely populated places or in places with no signal.
Since flying drones nowadays is affordable for almost everyone, a lot of misuses is detected by e.g. critical infrastructure operators, due to clueless, careless, but also criminal drone operators. Reliable UAV detection and smart countering, but also the capability to distinguish between approved and unauthorized flights are key to success. Heiko Nissen from Rohde & Schwarz will tell the conference participants more about this topic.

(title of the presentation will be added later)
The development of drone technology is changing our world every day, it can be described as affecting us in the same way that the Internet has affected us. Unfortunately, the technology also has two faces, a light and a dark one. The presentation of Robert Fintak will be about showing the different types of dangers, accidents, incidents and attacks using drones and how to counter these threats.
13:40 DRONES AND SECURITY – BLOCK 2
Tomáš Schóber included in his presentation information on ways to integrate drone management in crisis and special operations.
In his presentation, Olivér Takács will talk about security risks, cybersecurity, safe operations and airspace in the Hungarian drone industry. He will also present Széchenyi István University’s dual-use drone projects and the role of the Hungarian Drone Coalition and future plans for safer and better drone operations.
The implementation of Regulation (EU) 945/2019 and (EU) 947/2019 in Slovakia will bring a number of changes to the flying rules, especially for commercial drone operators. For flights in EASA special (specific) category, it will be mandatory to assess the risks associated with the flight. EUSPA, in cooperation with Egis and FlyingBasket, is looking at ways in which data from the European Copernicus system can speed up this process. More about this topic will cover Ján Čerňan in his presentation.
The deployment of drones in government and critical infrastructure protection can have a number of specifics, where are the weak and strong points? What is the practical experience and where is the development heading? Jaroslav Řešátko will offer answers to these questions in his presentation.
Documenting the scene of a traffic accident immediately after its occurrence is a non-repeatable task, the quality of which has a significant impact on the accuracy, precision and conclusions of the technical analysis of the course of a traffic accident. Expertise in the analysis of the course of a traffic accident is mainly used in criminal and administrative proceedings of the parties involved. Ing. Tomáš Korbel, PhD. from Automotive Solution4u, s. r. o. in his presentation will point out the effectiveness of drones in collecting data necessary for a thorough and modern technical analysis of the accident process in road traffic.
