South of the Clouds
The economic, environmental, health, societal and safety benefits associated with the application of drone technologies are starting to be experienced in the UK, but the full potential of their use is yet to be realised. Flying uncrewed aircraft - ‘drones’ - beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) of their pilots, creates advantage in numerous applications including health care delivery, search and rescue, connection of remote communities, Infrastructure inspection, removal of people from safety risk in industrial settings, and environmental monitoring.

Connecting the Skies

whitePaper | November 8, 2019

The use cases for Inflight Connectivity are manifold. Market research suggests that 90% of passengers would like to connect, but less than 10% do so, as fees are high, and performance is poor. In the cabin, online credit card verification would eliminate fraud, and qualified medical assistance from the ground would avoid unnecessary diversions. Flight crews could optimize their flight path based on real time weather updates. Aircraft systems could report the need for maintenance and trigger ground crews accordingly, so that ground times can be minimized, and resources be used most efficiently. The ever-increasing demand for Inflight Connectivity is driven by several factors: the continued growth of airline passenger traffic, which is expected to double by 2035; 5-10 times higher passenger take rates of cabin Wi-Fi services than today; the amount of data generated by modern aircraft systems, which has already surpassed 1 Terabyte per flight just for the engines; other aerial vehicles that require connectivity for mission accomplishment, for example, police and rescue helicopters; and finally manned and unmanned drones (eVTOLs), which are expected to proliferate in the next decade.

A ROADMAP FOR FLIGHT AUTOMATION IN ADVANCED AIR MOBILITY

whitePaper | January 31, 2022

Skyroads AG, Munich, Germany is developing, testing and implementing an Automated Airspace Management and Vehicle Guidance System (AAVS). It is abundantly clear that a system which helps guide complex, three-dimensional traffic in congested airspace will be needed soon. Legacy ATC systems are not able to support the urban transport mode. Legislators and regulators are expecting the industry to supply solutions. Skyroads is the first company world-wide to make a comprehensive proposal. Fundamental considerations for this solution are found in our previous White Paper “Air Traffic Control for Urban Air Mobility”. The operational tasks to be solved are widely acknowledged within the current deliberations by the industry and the rulemaking bodies.

From Aircraft Health Monitoring to Aircraft Health ManagementWhite Paper on AHM

whitePaper | February 15, 2022

The perspective of a “self-healing” aircraft is still a distant one even if some of the edge research in self-diagnostics and self-repair of complex structures is bringing such aircraft of the future out of the Science Fiction realm and closer to aviation attainable goals. In this context, the first step to ensure the desired technical availability of the aircraft is to set-up an appropriate maintenance activity, which is focused on and supports the airworthiness, technical capability and performance of each aircraft, as demanded by the airline’s operation schedule.
