The three companies have formed a consortium and with their unique qualities the objective is to carry out the prototype tests and bring the SCODEV to the world market.

The consortium has obtained a Horizon 2020 Grant of the European Commission under the framework of “Fast Track to Innovation” with an amount of EURO 2.7 million to transform the designed scooping device into a working prototype and to obtain the EASA airworthiness certificate. Once the EASA Certificate is obtained the SCODEV is ready for market-introduction.
