Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research (NUAIR) Alliance and PABLO AIR, a South Korea-based drone service provider, have signed a memorandum of understanding to help develop regulatory compliant commercial drone solutions for US clients. PABLO AIR will utilize NUAIR’s expertise in advanced commercial drone operations to align PABLO AIR systems to US business models and practices that are compliant with Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations, says a joint press release. PABLO AIR’s participation in the Central New York uncrewed aircraft systems (UAS) community aims to further strengthen the local ecosystem and contribute to scalable, economically viable commercial drone operations.
NUAIR CEO Ken Stewart said. “This cross-country collaboration to safely integrate uncrewed aircraft into the national airspace will help unlock the true potential of commercial drone operations….PABLO AIR has successful conducted maritime drone flights at Incheon International Airport, South Korea which integrated both Unmanned Traffic Management (UTM) and Air Traffic Management (ATM) systems, a key component in keeping the airways safe.”
PABLO AIR systems provide complete solutions for multiple UAS use-cases including package delivery, linear inspection, and public service. PABLO AIR will initially focus on conducting long-range beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) commercial drone operations in the U.S. market and is collaborating with NUAIR towards BVLOS permission for PABLO AIR to conduct high value, time-critical cargo delivery within New York’s 50-Mile Drone Corridor.
“This MOU, held at NUAIR headquarters in Syracuse, New York, is the first local collaboration since last year when we secured exclusive rights with EVA to conduct Proof of Concept (PoC) drone deliveries in New York, discussing various collaboration measures necessary to expand business and R&D in the United States. We hope to introduce PABLO AIR’s drone ground control system and drone delivery platform in the U.S. as soon as possible for the first time as a Korean company,” said PABLO AIR CEO Kim Young-Joon.
NUAIR continues to align itself with organizations that share in the overall goal of safely integrating uncrewed aircraft into the national airspace. PABLO AIR is an international addition to the NUAIR Alliance which collaborates on projects that advance the UAS and Advanced Air Mobility industries including standards development, product testing, drone integration, real-life use-case scenarios.
