The alliance will provide both Airware and NASA the ability to test and validate a wide range of scenarios to enable the development of the UTM system.

Under this partnership, both companies will test and operate diverse set of aircraft, sensors, and custom software, such as aircraft spacing, 4D trajectory modelling, collision avoidance with required level of safety and reliability essential for commercial use of UAS.

Jesse Kallman, Airware’s Head of Business Development and Regulatory Affairs said, “Our technology will allow us both to work towards a common goal of enabling safe and efficient commercial UAS operations, in addition to supplementing the work we are already conducting in the areas of collision avoidance and GPS denied flight, among others.”
