Vienna / Austria, Colorado / USA (pta014/27.10.2021/09:00 UTC+2) * NASA and its partners to increase maturity of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) ecosystem
* Frequentis offers Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) solution for airspace management, flight approval, and operator and drone registry
* Unmanned Experts are specialists in autonomous robotics, swarms, UTM, and mass data

As low flying traffic over urban cities prepares to increase, Frequentis, a global control centre 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.

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 realising 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. GOF 2.0) 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.

The AAM project is primarily focused on helping the UAM ecosystem to achieve a maturity level and to provide collaborative and responsive automation.

"We have put together an incredible team to help NASA with its AAM National Campaign and the US Air Force with its parallel Agility Prime program. In a scant year we plan to have live flights and in representative airspace under realistic scenarios. This is incredibly exciting and futuristic, but essential to propel the USA back to the forefront of these technologies and capabilities," proffered Keven Gambold, CEO of Unmanned Experts Inc.

Frequentis, with almost 75 years of safety-critical communications experience, offers a comprehensive UTM solution that includes airspace management, automatic and manual flight approval, operator and drone registry, as well as other altitude, capacity and surveillance management, and integration with ATM-grade sensor fusion and multilateration capabilities. Unmanned Experts Inc. is a world-leading expert in the emerging fields of autonomous robotics, swarms, UTM and mass data, as well as having overwhelming experience in the traditional unmanned aircraft systems domains.
