Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) and Urban Air Mobility (UAM) aircraft are the fastest-growing sectors in aviation.
UAS or “drones,” are being used daily to inspect infrastructure, provide emergency response support, survey agriculture and deliver supplies and to places that are dangerous or hard to access.
UAM solutions can help lower the millions of hours wasted on congested highways and roads everyday worldwide. Cities are growing rapidly and traffic congestion is increasing at alarming rates. It’s even worse for the biggest cities. By 2030 there will be 40 megacities that cover less than one-tenth of a percentage point of the surface area of the earth yet are home to 60% of the population and 20% of the global GDP. Traffic isn’t an inconvenience. It’s a mobility crisis.
