NASA will fund a multi-university team to develop and test safety systems for advanced air mobility (AAM) vehicles.
The team includes researchers from George Washington University, the University of Texas-Austin, MTI’s Lincoln Lab and Vanderbilt University.
The team will receive $2.5 million to develop and create the safe management for AAM in a three-year project.
The poject aims to tackle three types of hazards:
- adverse convective weather (winds and fog),
- corridor incursion by non-cooperative aircrafts,
- vehicle and component level degradation.
