NASA publishes concept of operations for high density vertiport operations

The document serves as a basis to develop vertiport automation prototype requirements, specifications, data interface requirements, system performance criteria, and regulatory needs.

The concept of operations includes vertiports of varying sizes, configurations, service offerings, and locations. UAM air vehicles include conventional rotorcraft, unmanned VTOL aircraft, and novel piloted VTOL aircraft.  It focuses on operations at a high-density vertiport, supported by a Vertiport Automation System (VAS) with high-throughput operation capabilities under conditions defined as NASA’s Urban Air Mobility Maturity Level Four (UML-4).
