AirMap to Supply UTM Services to Agility Prime

$1 Million from AFWERX to Provide UTM Platform

The US Air Force is to use AirMap’s UAS traffic management (UTM) services for its recently-launched non-traditional Agility Prime programme, which seeks to accelerate the commercial market for advanced air mobility vehicles – ‘flying cars.’

The USAF will use AirMap’s UTM platform to support testing of electric VTOL (eVTOL) aircraft in preparation for scaling of advanced air mobility operations. Leveraging unique testing resources and government use cases for distributed logistics and disaster response, the service plans to mitigate current commercial market and regulatory risks. The air vehicles tested throughout the programme will be used for a variety of operations, including shuttling security forces across missile fields as well as search-and-rescue and logistics missions. AirMap was awarded a $1 million Direct to Phase 2 Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) by AFWERX – the Air Force’s innovation arm – to provide its UTM platform for Agility Prime.
