Frequentis offers unmanned traffic management solution for airspace management, flight approval, and operator and drone registry, AviationPros report.

WASHINGTON - As low flying traffic over urban cities prepares to increase, Frequentis, a global control center communication provider, and Unmanned Experts, a world-leading autonomous robotics specialist, are joining the NASA Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) project. The two companies will add their unique expertise to this mission, which aims to support the emerging unmanned aviation markets to continue working towards integrating air taxis, which require electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL), cargo delivery aircraft and other new air vehicle concepts into the US national airspace system, AviationPros report. Continue reading original article.

The Intelligent Aerospace take:

October 27, 2021 - The NASA AAM project will support the safe development of an air transportation system that will move people and cargo between places previously unserved or underserved by aviation, using revolutionary unmanned and autonomous eVTOL aircraft that are just realizing their potential. The project includes work on Urban Air Mobility (UAM) and will provide substantial benefits to U.S. industry and the public.

“The safe integration of eVTOL into the airspace presents a great challenge and Frequentis is actively involved in projects (e.g. GOF2.0) that are addressing this challenge. We are pleased that Unmanned Experts has selected us to join this NASA project. Frequentis will play a key role by deploying the MosaiX SWIM digital platform to connect all partner systems to the NASA system. Our platform also has the ability to convert all data from partner systems into the format required by NASA, ensuring streamlined data sharing, says John Fort, Managing Director Frequentis California.
