Urban Air Mobility Project

Currently a global effort is being made in order to offer taxi services with autonomous aircrafts – so-called air taxis. These aircraft will primarily operate in the lower, unmonitored, airspace. In order to ensure smooth and safe traffic, cooperative control among air traffic is required and “sense and avoid” functionalities are indispensable to be able to react to uncooperative traffic.

Several concepts for the design of these air taxis as well as for their operation and control are currently being discussed and developed. With its outstanding aviation expertise, etamax space supports an international consortium with the collecting of requirements for air taxis, their operation and their integration into airspace, based on a highly representative use case scenario. This includes, among other things, the gathering, elicitation and negotiation of technical requirements as well as requirements for personnel training and the future infrastructure to operate air taxis efficiently. These requirements serve as a basis for the later detailed specification of e.g. tenders that will be issued by corresponding transportation authorities.
