Cuando pensamos en drones, casi como un instinto, levantamos la cabeza y oteamos el horizonte en busca de alguna aeronave no tripulada, con esa forma tan particular y esos rotores que las hacen distinguibles de cualquier otro ente que nos sobrevuele. Pero los drones no sólo están en los cielos, también en la superficie terrestre y, por supuesto, en los mares.
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.
