Established on July 1, the ECLAIR consortium will focus on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and other negative environmental impacts of the aerospace industry by developing innovative electric technologies.
The Raytheon Company is testing a new artificial intelligence (AI) tool developed to help determine when the multi-mode radar installed on U.S. Air Force CV-22 tiltrotor aircraft is in need of service.
Tactile Mobility specializes in tactile sensing, which the company argues is required to meet and even surpass human driving capabilities. The company's software collects "first order" data using a vehicle's embedded, non-visual sensors for data like wheel speed, wheel angle, engine revolutions per minute, and gear position.
The rapid shift of commercial focus toward LEO has resulted in thousands of new satellites. An expected growth in satellite constellations requires space-faring nations such as New Zealand to engage in monitoring and regulating satellite activity.
Dragonfly, which might be called a rotorcraft lander, is under development by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory and has the appearance of an Earth-bound vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) unmanned aircraft system (UAS) or drone.
Argus, a global leader in automotive cybersecurity, has upgraded its stand-alone Fleet Protection backend platform and is now providing continuous live monitoring of both automotive and commercial aircraft fleets.
United Launch Alliance (ULA) will supply launch vehicles for the Dream Chaser Cargo System. Starting in 2021, Dream Chaser – Sierra Nevada Corporation (SNC) Space Systems’ reusable spaceplane – will launch aboard ULA's Vulcan Centaur rockets for six NASA cargo resupply and return services to the International Space Station (ISS).
Human Horizons of Shanghai, China has debuted a premium all-electric smart brand, HiPhi, with a production-ready prototype vehicle, HiPhi 1 – a premium supercar-inspired electric SUV and the first production vehicle equipped with 5G-V2X, or Vehicle-to-Everything connectivity.
As part of the acquisition, BendixKing will continue to drive the successful adoption of TruTrak's autopilots in the experimental and certified aircraft markets, keeping TruTrak's engineers and CEO, Andrew Barker, to maintain the brand’s integrity and the affordability.
The solutions – which have already received nationwide approval from multiple UAM operators – provide scalable and secure end-to-end infrastructure and applications to help organizations and governments manage data and capitalize on the UAM economy.
Designing for safety in automated vehicles has complex requirements – many of which are surrounded with misconceptions. As the leader for training mobility engineers, SAE is providing a two-day classroom seminar: Introduction to Automated Vehicle Safety: Multi-Agent, Functional Safety, and SOTIF.
The Lockheed C-130H Hercules fleet operated by the Air National Guard and U.S. Air Force Reserve is getting new Collins Aerospace Systems avionics that will help extend the life of the legacy aircraft by 20 years.
Four companies – Blue Origin, Northrop Grumman Innovation Systems, SpaceX, and United Launch Alliance (ULA) – recently submitted proposals for the U.S. Air Force's Phase 2 Launch Services Procurement (LSP) competition. Two of those companies will be awarded with up to 34 launches over a five-year period under the National Security Space Launch (NSSL) program.
The yet-to-be-named modular system prototype will feature an updated proprietary control system, triple redundancy capabilities, improved flight time, increases speed and payload capacity, and a new battery management system.
TIoTA, an open software consortium of over 50 members organized to support the creation of a secure, scalable, interoperable, and trusted IoT ecosystem, began the E-Mobility Challenge to link IoT devices with consumers and stakeholder companies such as operators and service, communication, and payment providers within the preexisting European electric vehicle ecosystem.
The partnership marks a major milestone for both companies – the purchase will dramatically increase BlackBird’s air transportation network while solidifying Bye Aerospace as a manufacturer of the world’s first all-electric aircraft that meets United States FAA FAR Part 23 airworthiness standards for normal, utility, acrobatic, and commuter aircraft.
According to Airbus, the CityAirbus UAM vehicle – or “air taxi” – will initially be operated by a pilot for certification and market entry purposes; however, the aircraft is designed for fully autonomous flight once regulations are established.
Agencies involved in the operation obtained a special exemption from the Federal Aviation Administration’s national security flight restrictions over the airspace above the event, for purposes of keeping the crowds, drivers, and race personnel safe.
