The Urban Air Mobility Division of Hyundai Motor Group and ANRA Technologies, an end-to-end drone operations and traffic management solutions provider, are working together to develop an operating environment for advanced air mobility (AAM).
Through the partnership, ANRA will provide strategic insight on Hyundai’s concept of operations (ConOps) for AAM airspace management and ground mobility integration, according to a news release. The companies will also identify research opportunities to help inform regulatory decisions and advance infrastructure projects.
“ANRA’s SmartSkies family of airspace management solutions have been proven worldwide and provide the critical support required for complex AAM operations at scale,” ANRA Technologies Founder and CEO Amit Ganjoo said, according to the release. “We take a long-term view in everything we do as a company and are looking forward to integrating our advanced technologies with the Urban Air Mobility Division of Hyundai Motor Group’s AAM ecosystem and sharing our knowledge and experience to ensure the success of our partnership and help move our industry safely forward.”
The SmartSkies microservices architecture enables AAM airspace management for urban air mobility aircraft to scale and adapt to any region. The platform includes mission planning, strategic deconfliction, tracking and monitoring, constraints management, authorization and registration.
“As an emerging mobility solution, it is critical diverse parties work together to co-create the AAM ecosystem, including its necessary digital and physical infrastructure,” said Pamela Cohn, chief operating officer, Urban Air Mobility Division of Hyundai Motor Group, according to the release. “ANRA brings a unique background of operational history in the drone services sector that will help define the operating environment for all AAM vehicles.”
