Urban Air Mobility is a safe and efficient system for passenger and cargo transportation by air in an urban environment, including small package delivery and other services of urban unmanned aerial systems.
The use of small aircraft transporting passengers in cities and between airports indicates the demand for such services, however, its extensive use is hindered by costly flights, maintenance and construction of a complex infrastructure. Besides, there is currently not enough air traffic controllers to cope with the influx of flights.
Urban Air Mobility (UAM) will transform urban transport as we know it. UAM is a safe and efficient air transport system that will use unmanned air traffic management systems along with highly automated aircraft capable of transporting passengers or cargo at low altitudes in urban and suburban areas.
Our ABR Ecosystem for unmanned aviation is built in strict compliance with aviation safety standards and meets all the UAM principles. Integration of ABR AirChannel UTM with the existing air traffic control (ATC) systems along with process and infrastructure solutions of
ABR Ecosystem will help make create urban unmanned cargo and people transportation happen.
One of the most promising applications of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) is using them to deliver various types of cargo: online store orders, mail, food from supermarkets and restaurants, medicines.
ABR AirChannel UTM will help create safe and cost-effective UAV routes in an urban environment, while the ABR Droneport autonomous land-based UAV homing and service stations will make it possible to receive and send packages automatically. Based on a mobile platform for public roads, they will be able to quickly change logistics networks depending on the cost effectiveness of rendering services in a specific location.
ABR AIRCHANNEL UTM ENABLES TO PERFORM SAFE AUTOMATED BVLOS FLIGHTS (BEYOND VISUAL LINE OF SIGHT) AND FULLY REVEALS THE POTENTIAL OF USING UNMANNED AVIATION
THE MOST PROMISING APPLICATION TODAY IS EXPRESS DELIVERY OF INDIVIDUAL PACKAGES
As reported by Ernst & Young in UAV Market Development. May 2020 is 37 % better than land transport in terms of cost and 60 % better in terms of time for single package delivery. A premium for delivery within an hour from 180 %.
Today, regular autonomous passenger transportation in an urban environment is not a question of if but when. Unmanned electric vertical take-off and landing (eVTOL) aircraft that are being actively developed by many companies are designed to decrease the existing high road traffic density. They include unconventional electric or hybrid engines for manned or automated operations. Electric engines and simplified electronic control can improve complex transmission gear, flight-critical components and mechanical reliability, as well as cut production and operation costs dramatically. Due to its small size, it is not required to build complex infrastructure. Meanwhile, the use of electric engines reduces the noise level and makes maintenance easier. However, the main issues include safety and flight control.
Abraham Technology is committed to make such transportation possible and available in the near future. Our process solutions within ABR Ecosystem can become the starting point for development of this promising industry.
