Urban Air Mobility Subject Of NASA Media Day

Event Gets Underway Thursday In Seattle

NASA has invited representatives of the media to attend a two-day Urban Air Mobility Grand Challenge Industry Day beginning at 8 a.m. PDT Thursday, Nov. 1, at the Seattle Marriott Waterfront. The event is sponsored by NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate’s (ARMD).

Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is defined as a safe and efficient system for passenger and cargo air transportation in and around an urban area. Several companies currently are working to develop vehicles and the infrastructure necessary to make UAM a reality.

Building on its decades of successful research improving the aviation sector, NASA is partnering with industry, academia and the Federal Aviation Administration to test the concepts and technologies necessary to help move this industry forward. Among other things, new standards are needed to ensure concepts such as autonomous vehicles, electric propulsion, and high density airspace operations in and around the urban environment can be implemented safely and efficiently.

During the event, media will hear about NASA’s UAM vision and how it will revolutionize mobility within metropolitan areas, followed by a discussion of several ecosystem-wide grand challenges that ARMD will sponsor in the coming years to promote public confidence in UAM safety and facilitate community-wide learning. Reporters also will have the opportunity to talk with NASA’s UAM project team.

Urban Air Mobility is emerging as one of the most exciting frontiers in aviation history, and the UAM ecosystem and its associated technologies are likely to be the most complex aviation has ever seen. NASA is committed to working with the UAM community to identify and address the key challenges ahead.
