The working groups will complement other NASA and industry efforts, including the UAM Grand Challenge series. Through them, the organization aims to align on UAM terminology, challenges, barriers, and solutions; develop a NASA-curated “book of requirements” for UAM technology, systems, and operations; and support discussions of regulatory and standards development activities, among other goals.
Participants will also “receive consistent updates regarding the current state of the UAM ecosystem, allowing them to determine where they can provide the best value to their organizations and industry,” NASA says.Read more
According to NASA officials, both “advanced air mobility” and “national campaign” better reflect the goals of the undertaking, which is planned as a series of field demonstrations to evaluate the readiness of new types of aircraft and airspace management systems. The demonstrations will progress in stages to encompass a full range of scenarios under varying weather and traffic conditions — including, but not limited to, scaled urban air taxi operations.Read more
As a first step, the NASA Aeronautics Research Institute (NARI) and the Air Force’s Agility Prime program have issued a request for information (RFI) seeking inputs from “suppliers and manufacturers of all types of parts, sub-systems, and systems” of AAM vehicles — a term that encompasses a variety of novel eVTOL aircraft, including those designed for urban air mobility (UAM). “The intent is to map and share the current AAM supply chain via an electric platform, model and simulate the network’s ability to scale, and ensure that the industry has the human capital to meet future needs,” the RFI states. “The electronic platform, and modeling and simulation capabilities will also help connect original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) with current and aspiring aerospace suppliers.”
RFI respondents are asked to submit basic information about their companies, plus feedback on several topics including challenges in sourcing parts, downstream suppliers, and raw materials; and challenges in finding the human capital required to build the AAM/UAM ecosystem.Read more

China’s government, in enforcing the world’s largest quarantine to contain the coronavirus outbreak, has adapted and co-opted industrial drones to help ensure that an estimated 50 million residents are kept at home and indoors across a dozen cities.
The software flying the drones made in Shenzhen is being rewritten to adapt their applications for disease detection and crowd management. The vehicles will use thermal sensors, high-definition zoom lenses, loudspeakers and chemical spray jets for disinfecting large areas, according to two makers of industrial drones.

Spain has been one of the most deeply affected countries in the world by the coronavirus. As of today at 1:30 EDT, it’s had 102,136 cases and 9,053 deaths.
So the Spanish Military Emergency Unit is deploying agricultural drones to spray disinfectant around large outdoor areas as well as inside large vehicles.
The Spanish military is using both DJI’s AGRAS MG-1 and the DRONEHEXA XL by Spanish drone maker DroneTools. DJI’s drones make up 75% of the global drone market.Read more
Japan to introduce licensees for BVLOS drone flights
The news comes from government sources on Monday who said the government hopes to have the system up and running by 2022. The BVLOS licenses will also be age-restricted and you must pass both practical and written test to get receive the license.
The licenses will only be active for some time with renewal tests required to keep the license. Illegally flying drones with an active license will result in the extermination of the license and a possible fine for the illegal flight.
A panel discussion will be used to come up with the exact logistics of the licenses which will be put into a report this week. The government is hoping to submit the bill next year in plans to release the licensing system in 2022.Read more
