Operating the Navigation Database Server from Ground Station

2022-05-26
2022-26-0028
The main aim of operating the navigation database server from ground station (Web/cloud) is to operate a single navigation database server across all aircrafts and navigation database updates can be performed at one place. which will be effective and quick, thus no need to update the navigation database in each flight for every 28 days. UAM refers to a safe and efficient air transportation system that uses transformative new airborne technology, manned and unmanned, to move people and goods in a metropolitan area, operating the navigation data base server from ground station might be the first step towards including the FMS system in urban air mobility (UAM). the proposed system can run as standalone application and provides serveries to all aircrafts from single resource; thus, the system will provide services with low cost. ...UAM refers to a safe and efficient air transportation system that uses transformative new airborne technology, manned and unmanned, to move people and goods in a metropolitan area, operating the navigation data base server from ground station might be the first step towards including the FMS system in urban air mobility (UAM). the proposed system can run as standalone application and provides serveries to all aircrafts from single resource; thus, the system will provide services with low cost.

A New Safety-Oriented Multi-State Joint Estimation Framework for High-Power Electric Flying Car Batteries

2023-04-11
2023-01-0511
Battery states such as state of charge (SOC), state of temperature (SOT), and state of power (SOP) are of particular interest for urban air mobility (UAM) applications. This article proposes a new safety-oriented multi-state estimation framework for collaboratively updating the SOC, SOT, and SOP of lithium-ion batteries under typical UAM mission profiles, which explicitly incorporates the underlying interplay among these three states. ...This article proposes a new safety-oriented multi-state estimation framework for collaboratively updating the SOC, SOT, and SOP of lithium-ion batteries under typical UAM mission profiles, which explicitly incorporates the underlying interplay among these three states.
