ResilienX, a provider of in-time aviation safety management system (IASMS) solutions, is partnering with AeroX to provide systems engineering and software support for its Air Traffic Low-Altitude Surveillance (ATLAS) urban unmanned air traffic management (UTM) system.
“The collaboration between the two organizations aims to lay the foundation for an innovative, next-generation capability to ensure the safety, efficiency, and reliability of drone operations in North Carolina,” say the companies in a press release.
“In 2022, AeroX initiated Project ATLAS to establish a ground-based surveillance system (GBSS) in the Winston-Salem region to provide critical low-altitude surveillance of non-cooperative aircraft to UAS operators who are seeking beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operational approval from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). AeroX will build on the foundational work from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), FAA, and standards bodies, including ASTM and RTCA. AeroX is aligned with industry and FAA with an end goal to enable repeatable, scalable, and economically viable BVLOS operations with an emphasis on package delivery, infrastructure inspection, and public safety. “
Basil Yap, President of AeroX, commented on the collaboration, “Project ATLAS was initiated to help the AAM industry fly BVLOS missions long distances between urban and rural environments.”
“Throughout the summer and into the fall the organizations will be focused on designing and deploying a low-altitude GBSS and weather sensing system in the Winston-Salem downtown area, and begin serving customers. AeroX intends to also expand drones-as-first-responders service to other locations nearby, and eventually scale to include other metropolitan areas including Raleigh-Durham, and Charlotte.”
