NFT displays first demonstrator model of the ASKA™
Viable eVTOL vehicle that can drive on the road and fly autonomously
By: NFT Inc.
ASKA means flying bird in Japanese. ASKA whisks people safely and affordably on their daily journeys. Not just for the economic elite, ASKA has tremendous mass-market potential.
ASKA started as a dream – a dream of a future where people spend less time in traffic and more time with their loved ones. Where people can live in affordable communities and commute quickly and safely to urban centers. Where people have a better quality of life and local businesses and communities thrive.
ASKA is now a viable reality, developed with a team of experts with vast experience in aeronautical and autonomous AI systems, including the development of the most advanced unmanned air vehicles in Israel and the US. Our team shares our dream of reshaping the future of transportation with a real autonomous flying car.
We set our goals high for ASKA – and achieved them:
● The size of an SUV with a UAM range of up to 350 miles: ASKA accommodates up to three people and runs on rechargeable batteries with a range extender (hybrid) propulsion system.
● Autonomous flying: ASKA flies autonomously with its unique Sense & Avoid system. Sophisticated AI for detection & collision avoidance in the air, dealing with air challenges by sensing, building an awareness picture and choosing the best safety action in the flight path. ASKA has a unique IP for autonomous systems that validates and verifies these capabilities.
● Subscription model – ASKA is available as a subscription-
● Market demand for door to door travel: ASKA offers the comfort of all-in-one, door to door transportation, enabling you to drive, fly and drive till your final destination, without the need to change from a car, to an air taxi, and then a car again. ASKA's affordability, combined with the advantage of door-to-door travel, will trigger extraordinary consumer demand.
