AirMap rolls out partnerships with NASA and the FAA in the United States and plans to expand business in APAC
May 15, 2019

HONG KONG, 15 May, 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- AirMap, the leading global airspace intelligence platform for drones, announced that it has been recently selected as a program partner for NASA’s TCL4 trials in the U.S. states of Texas and Nevada, along with the Federal Aviation Administration’s (FAA) UAS Traffic Management Pilot Program (UPP) at Virginia Tech University. In both cases, AirMap is providing a comprehensive, real-time view of the airspace to manage drone traffic in complex, real-world scenarios.

The NASA TCL4 trials are a look towards the future, testing the interaction between drones within the AirMap Unmanned Traffic Management Systems (UTM) in a whole host of urban scenarios including news gathering, package delivery and managing large scale contingencies.

AirMap is continuing its participation in the national UAS Integration Pilot Program (UAS IPP), set by the White House to accelerate the integration of commercial drone operations into the national airspace. For example, in North Carolina, AirMap and drone operator Matternet are using drones to deliver much needed medical supplies between Raleigh hospitals. This stems from previous news that AirMap was selected to participate in 6 of 10 awards across the country, including Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma, Kansas, North Carolina, North Dakota, the City of Reno, and the City of San Diego.

“Building on the recognition from NASA and the FAA in the United States, we are expanding our business in the APAC region,” said Hon Chu, Head of APAC Business Operations, AirMap.

“We had previously established a joint venture with Rakuten, namely Rakuten AirMap, in Japan, and we are planning to further develop our business in the Asia Pacific region, especially in Hong Kong and Singapore. We look forward to working with civil aviation authorities in multiple markets in APAC,” Chu added.
