Integration of eVTOLs into existing manned air transport.

The Air Mobility Initiative - Positioning & Guidance Systems (AMI-PGS) funding project is a research project within the Air Mobility Initiative (AMI) that focuses on the requirements of eVTOLs (electrically powered vertical take-off and landing aircraft). At its core, the project is concerned with novel take-off and landing procedures, GNSS-independent positioning, and connections and information flow to an Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) system.

how eVTOLs can be connected to a country system as well as Droniq's UTM system

Project duration

Project start: January 2023 Project end: December 2025

The goal

The goal is to enable the integration of eVTOLs into existing air traffic and increase the safety and efficiency of aircraft movements.

AMI-PGS is part of the AMI initiative (Air Mobility Initiative).

The implementation

The AMI-PGS project is being implemented in several steps: First, requirements for takeoff and landing procedures for eVTOLs are analyzed and defined. Legal and regulatory framework conditions are also taken into account. Subsequently, the project partners will design and test various concepts for the positioning and guidance of eVTOLs. Among other things, the connection to a UTM system that enables the flow of information between the eVTOLs and other air traffic participants will be investigated.

Our contribution

As part of the AMI-PGS project, Droniq is enabling and testing the connection of the eVTOLs or landing system to its own UAS Traffic Management System (UTM). For this purpose, Droniq uses its products and solutions for drone traffic integration, such as antenna sensing and UTM environment.

With these technologies, Droniq supports the positioning and guidance of eVTOLs and ensures the flow of information between eVTOLs and other air traffic participants within the UTM.
