The ideal place for start-ups, scale-ups, established companies, knowledge institutions and governments to research, develop and test technologies and applications.
To develop into the hotspot for sensor-related activity.
Unmanned Valley aims to bring together know-how from across the chain and help innovations in unmanned technology, autonomous systems and sensors to accelerate, grow and lead the European industry.
Unmanned Valley is unique. The airspace can be used continuously and flexibly and a corridor to the sea will soon make BVLOS-flying possible (over land and sea).
Unmanned Valley, located on the former naval airbase of Valkenburg, is in the heart of the area for the companies and knowledge institutions that together form the UAV industry and offers the space it seeks.
With Schiphol Airport and Rotterdam The Hague Airport around the corner, Unmanned Valley is easily accessible to international parties.
“A condition for innovation is collaboration. That’s possible at Unmanned Valley; a place where entrepreneurs and researchers can meet, develop and test innovations. A great addition to our region, where there is already a lot of knowledge and experience with robotics, drones and other unmanned systems.”Meindert Stolk Provincial Executive member for Economy and Innovation, Agriculture and Horticulture, Health and Safety (environment, soil, climate adaptation) in the Province of Zuid-Holland.
“As government, we need to encourage and facilitate economic development. Unmanned Valley should help companies develop sensor technologies for a variety of applications and grow into a place of international attractiveness.”Gerard Mostert Councillor for Urban Development and Housing, Municipality of Katwijk
“Delft University of Technology is going to use Unmanned Valley for scientific research and a fly-out programme for start-ups. For this it is crucial that in the middle of the Randstad area there is now a good test location for intelligent and unmanned systems.”Henri Werij Dean of the Faculty of Aerospace Engineering at Delft University of Technology
“Being part of Unamanned Valley is a very exciting prospect for our business and ambition. It’s an ideal location, providing space for technology-driven companies like us to innovate.”Alex de Looze Aerialtronics DV
