Guests enjoyed a number of scientific presentations showing the extent to which drones have been used in research. The drone at right will now go on missions at the Villum Research Station.
The missions will take place approximately 900 kilometres from the North Pole, and this is the first large polar research drone of its type. The wingspan is 3.3 metres and the drone has a length of 2.3 metres altogether. 
Michael Thorsen, Integra Aerial Services, hands over the keys to Professor Henrik Skov.
Danish Minister for Energy, Utilities and Climate Lars Christian Lilleholt shows a keen interest in the drone’s future missions when he arrives at the ceremony.
