Eve Air Mobility and Moviation, South Korea’s first Urban Air Mobility (UAM) service provider, announced the signature of a Letter of Intent to purchase Eve’s Urban ATM solution.
The agreement comes as Eve’s Urban ATM (Air Traffic Management) concept has been adopted as part of Korea’s K-UAM Grand Challenge. The Challenge is a phased demonstration program in which Urban Air Mobility (UAM) vehicle safety and traffic management solutions are tested in urban conditions and environments for suitability to support the commercialization of UAM in 2025.
“Eve’s Urban ATM solution, based on existing air traffic control software for piloted, passenger carrying aircraft, provides services for air navigation service providers, urban authorities, fleet operators, vertiport operators and other UAM stakeholders”, said David Rottblatt, vice president of sales and government affairs at Eve Air Mobility.
“Both companies will be committed to contributing to the global advancement of the UAM industry through the UATM systematic accumulation and dissemination of data,” said Min Shin, CEO at Moviation.
From before take-off to after landing, the urban air environment will count on integrated systems, services and technologies being developed by Eve to enable the safe launch of an efficient and predictable ecosystem to support eVTOL operations alongside many other airspace users. In the future, the advancement of infrastructure and regulation will rely on these network management services to enable autonomous flight.
Eve has engaged Atech, Embraer’s Air Traffic Control technology and system integrator company, to support the development of the Urban ATM software solution. Eve is leveraging Atech’s experience in developing aviation-grade products from the ATM systems in Brazil.
