SkyGrid and NASA collaborate on AAM integration, safety and standards

The initiative is led by NASA’s System-Wide Safety Project, which is innovating how risks in aviation are predicted, analysed, and mitigated as the airspace becomes more complex and integrated with advanced systems.

SkyGrid and NASA Langley will collaborate on two principal components. The first involves integrating SkyGrid’s traffic surveillance software to support distributed cooperative airspace management systems such as uncrewed traffic management and uncrewed aerial mobility services. This initiative will culminate in comprehensive flight demonstrations.

The second component focuses on specific use cases that aim to optimise uncrewed aerial systems operations in diverse environments within the national airspace while also making essential safety considerations. In urban settings, example operations may include critical public services and efficient cargo delivery. This component will help calibrate and validate developed models, methods, tools, and techniques to improve operational safety and efficiency.

SkyGrid’s collaboration with NASA will also contribute to developing new standards and procedures that ensure the safe operation of autonomous aircraft systems. This includes sharing critical data, experiences, and insights that will help formulate safety cases, risk assessments, and safety management systems tailored to the demands of emerging aviation technologies.
