Korean drone operator Pablo Air, a member of the Born2Global Centre, is to participate in a project to improve urban airspace safety hosted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. This project feeds into NASA’s larger vision for Advanced Air Mobility (AAM).
The testing will happen in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area where NASA’s Langley Research Center is located from this October to July next year. The project will include collaboration from five companies: Pablo Air, ResilienX, TruWeather, Spright and Longbow. Pablo Air will install wind speed sensors on its multicopter delivery drone and collect and utilize data through the smart traffic management system (PAMNet, Pablo Air Mobility Network).
Through this effort, Pablo Air will help collect and analyze real-time wind speed data that significantly affects flight stability. The prediction of the wind speed model helps ensure the stability of the flight path and identifies the effect on the battery, thereby improving flight efficiency.
Pablo Air established a branch in Arizona last year. This year, along with NUAIR (Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research), the company is steadily conducting drone delivery demonstrations at Griffiss International Airport in New York.
