NASA’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) is seeking AAM partners that will focus on demonstrating integrated AAM operations in flight and simulation activities to be conducted as part of the first AAM National Campaign (NC-1), which is planned for 2021 and 2022. NASA is currently seeking AAM vehicle developers that propose to fly as part of NC-1 flight activities in 2022, AAM operations infrastructure providers that propose to test and evaluate their infrastructure technologies and solutions as part of NC-1, and AAM airspace entities that propose to participate in an integrated AAM airspace simulation activity in 2021.
Proposals submitted under this Announcement from AAM vehicle developers for participation in NC-1 flight activities in 2022 may be submitted by both United States and international AAM vehicle developers. Proposals submitted under this Announcement from AAM operations infrastructure providers and airspace entities may be submitted only by United States companies and entities.
NASA Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate (ARMD) plans to host an Advanced Air Mobility National Campaign series with a goal to promote public confidence and accelerate the realization of emerging aviation markets for passenger and cargo transportation in urban, suburban, rural and regional environments. NASA plans to host the first AAM National Campaign (NC-1) in Calendar Year (CY) 2022 that will enable participants to demonstrate integrated operations in relevant scenarios that include: two-way network flight plan communications; beyond visual line of sight operations; real and simulated vehicle and operations contingencies; dynamic traffic avoidance and trajectory management; and approach and landing in the presence of real structures (e.g., buildings in an urban environment) and associated mechanical turbulence
