The manned, fully electric technology system demonstrator “ELIAS” with a current maximum take-off mass of 350kg and an engine output of 18kW is to be used as a basis. Furthermore, the technologies developed within the framework of the Bavarian research project EUROPAS are to be used as a basis to further develop the optional ELIAS flight system with automatic take-off and landing capability in combination with an applicable standardised ground control station. An extra challenge is the management of small drones by means of air-supported relay stations (demonstration with ELIAS) to extend the area of application and the autonomous creation of 3D maps.
