AeroX contracts TruWeather to assess weather in North Carolina

AeroX has contracted with low-altitude weather specialist TruWeather Solutions to assess weather conditions across North Carolina and engage the community in planning how to build the weather infrastructure required to expand existing and future drone and air taxi service.

AeroX, is a nonprofit organisation focused on facilitating the safe and efficient commercialisation of advanced air mobility, including unmanned aircraft systems technologies, in North Carolina.

AeroX says it was awarded funding by the North Carolina General Assembly to build an urban advanced air mobility system, with an understanding that these services will help carry cargo and, ultimately, people across the region and state. AeroX identified weather as a critical component when building this system.

According to the press release “Weather conditions such as wind, rain, fog and storms significantly impact a drone’s ability to operate and function in low-altitude airspace, whether that is within densely developed urban areas or in rural, coastal and mountainous terrains. Knowing where weather hazards exist and where to deploy sensors that can provide critical weather data are key steps in enabling broad and routine drone use.

“TruWeather Solutions will assess the weather conditions and potential hazards in the state that can make drone operations challenging. It will then convene drone manufacturers, uncrewed air traffic management service providers, weather partners and others to understand their particular needs for weather data, report on the study’s findings about low-altitude weather conditions in the state and determine where to begin locating weather infrastructure to support AAM operations.”
