Technology can solve institutional UAM challenges
For CIVATAglobal and other organisations seeking to build bridges between local communities and the aviation industry one of the major challenges is to gain clarity around where the rights and responsibilities of cities start and end and where the rights and responsibilities of national aviation safety organisations and UAM/AAM operators start and end. It looks like a political, legal and institutional minefield.
But is it?
There are information hub technologies entering the market which will allow for suitably trained local authority officers to simply input city-derived aeronautical
data – such as dynamic no-go zones and areas which will incur overflight charges - into a single system developed and managed by appropriately certified bodies, with the airspace operational data then shared between drone/UAM operators, public safety agencies and cities. Fees for commercial operations will be based on the complexity of the mission and collected and distributed automatically. The hub will manage flight plan approvals and deconfliction – strategic and tactical. The concept is hardly new but what makes it compelling is the amount of automation which can now be built in to make the input/output work/benefit aspects of cities so simple. Simplicity will be the key to UAM success.
