eVertiSKY Corp Completes NASA Commercial License for UAM Airspace Structures
Chicago Company Building Urban Air Mobility Solutions Leveraging NASA's UTM Technologies.
By: eVertiSKY Corp.
As part of the royalty-sharing agreement, the collaboration will leverage the NASA UAS Traffic Management (UTM) project to deploy the eVertiSKY Software Defined Airspace Platform comprised of:
4D Trajectory-Based Reference Blocks (4DTRB) provide waypoints and flight lanes carefully designed to align with existing civil airspace
Digital Flight Rules (DFRs) enable real-time publishing, coordination, situational awareness, and operational compliance monitoring
Ground-Based Public Sensing Nodes (GBPSNs) collect information about UAM vehicles' position, speed, and planned/current trajectories
eVertiSKY will deliver the platform over three core phases:
"The next generation of urban air mobility requires ground and air infrastructure. Our proximity to the NASA UTM supports our ability to deliver both assets at the levels of operational and innovative excellence required to catalyze safety, operations, and service standards for the emerging Advanced Air Mobility industry." - Sandra Formenton, CEO eVertiSKY Corp.
The UAM Software Defined Airspace platform will afford cities and large-land owners, and metroplex managers the ability to re-imagine, simulate, and ultimately activate their visions of UAM-enabled ecosystems in a scalable and intuitive manner. Under terms of the agreement, the eVertiSKY SDA will be available to a limited beta group in 2026 with general market viability in 2027.
The company intends to begin testing corridor simulations of a limited number of U.S. city locations in 2024 in collaborates with various stakeholders, including government agencies, industry partners, and academia, to accelerate the safe and efficient adoption of UAS technology for commercial and public use.
About eVertiSKY Corp:
By designing and planning Vertiports and airspace infrastructure, eVertiSKY provides the necessary infrastructure for UAM operations to take place.
About NASA UTM:
The NASA UTM (Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management) is a research initiative by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) focused on developing and testing an airspace management system for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS), commonly known as drones. The goal of NASA UTM is to establish a safe and efficient system that allows for the integration of UAS operations into the low-altitude airspace, particularly in urban and suburban areas.
