NASA partners with five states to support drone taxis and drone delivery in the US

| | ,

NASA recently announced partnerships with five different states to help make drone taxis and cargo drone delivery a reality.

The partnerships will focus on testing and sharing best practices with state and local governments for implementing the use of big drones as air taxis and as cargo delivery vehicles. The five states NASA has partnered with are Florida, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Ohio, and Texas.

As a core part of that effort, NASA AAM plans to host a series of workshops for each partner. The workshops will include other stakeholders in AAM implementation, such as drone taxi manufacturers, airport authorities, and infrastructure providers.

The workshops will not only have the aim of providing information to local authorities but also of helping them create policies and approaches for incorporating AAM.

At least four of these workshops are already scheduled for the summer of 2022.
