Supernal and Inmarsat have announced a partnership to define the application of satellite connectivity in Advanced Air Mobility (AAM).
“Together, the companies will conduct testing and data sharing to optimise hardware and network systems, which will lead to the safe and efficient integration of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles into the airspace,” said a company press statement. “During vehicle testing, Supernal will connect its eVTOL to Inmarsat’s Velaris SATCOM service to assess capabilities such as aircraft state and telemetry monitoring. Velaris builds on Inmarsat’s vast three-decade experience in air traffic management communications and is powered by its high resilience ELERA global satellite communications network.
“Supernal, which is part of Hyundai Motor Group, will work with Inmarsat as part of its “open ecosystem” approach to addressing emerging technology needs of AAM.”
