ANRA Technologies Suports FAA’s Urban Air Mobility Demonstrations: Live Flights of Optionally Piloted Centaur
ANRA Technologies (ANRA) Powers FAA UAM Live Flight Tests
The FAA and stakeholders are moving full speed ahead on urban air mobility (UAM). The US has committed to advanced air mobility operations by the Los Angeles Olympic games in 2028. One of the projects established to help move the industry forward is the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) Airspace Management Demonstration (UAMD.)
How Will Deconfliction Work When Multiple Unmanned Aircraft Share Routes?
The UAMD has been in process for the last year. The project is designed to test concepts of airspace management and demonstrate how UAM corridors might work. The work culminated in live flights of Aurora Flight Science’s optionally piloted Centaur aircraft, with ANRA providing airspace management services. The Centaur flew the 20-mile corridor between St. Martin and Hollister Airports in central California.
In the test, the corridor included multiple entry points (CEPs): points the aircraft used to…
