Four new organisations have signed agreements to join NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) National Campaign, which aims to integrate air taxis, cargo delivery and other advanced aircraft concepts into the US National Airspace System.
Under the new agreements, Electra Aero, OverAir, Supernal and Ellis & Associates will exchange information related to the development and testing of vehicles, systems and technology. The new partners join more than 30 vehicle developers, infrastructure providers and airspace managers already participating in the National Campaign.
Over the last few years, NASA’s National Campaign has been working with partners from across industry, government and academia to establish flight test infrastructure, explore future flight path designs and advance the certification of technologies such as electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) vehicles.
“The National Campaign team is making strides in understanding how the vehicles, infrastructure and airspace will operate in urban, suburban, rural, and intraregional environments, and we are excited to welcome these new partners to the research ecosystem. Each additional research partner and operational flight demonstration helps inform approaches by our partners at the FAA and the future concept of operations.”
The new agreements were made under the National Campaign’s Information Exchange Annex, which is focused on demonstrating integrated automation capabilities and architectures to support safe and scalable AAM operations. The partners will therefore share information about their vehicles, processes, traffic management systems, infrastructure and capabilities.
