Together with Boeing, we’re releasing a roadmap for transitioning to a future where automated and uncrewed aircraft can safely carry passengers and cargo in urban and suburban areas. Our concept of operations lays out the technology, regulatory and social recommendations needed to deploy Urban Air Mobility (UAM) in the United States and integrate it into the national airspace system.
Earlier this month, we were honored to attend the first Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) summit held by The White House. This historic event brought together government, industry, and academic experts in an effort to usher in a new era in aviation. Learn more about the progress being made to ensure that the U.S. maintains its global leadership in aviation, and the important role autonomy plays in this effort.
