Über opens up governance and academic partner for UberAIR
Army Research Lab and the University of Texas at Austin were selected as Uber Elevate's partner, the project of the carpool into a chartered air cab called UberAIR. The ARL and UT will work on rotary technologies for the VTOL electrical plane (Electric Perpendicular Take-Off and Landing), which is projected to achieve a 1,000-2,000-foot altitude cruising speed of 150 to 200 milliph and up to 60 mile range with a lone cargo.
VTOL aircrafts will use piled co-rotating blades where two rotors stack on top of each other and turn in the same directions. Uber and the ARL jointly agreed in May to work together to develop technology to support Future Vertical Lift, a military-led multi-service effort that focuses on progressive rotary wing design for next-generation airplanes and UAVs that can support higher payloads, run quietly, and do not require a landing strip.
"This will enable the Army to quickly push forward a mutual benefit technological solution to achieve quiet and effective VTOL... for the next generations of Army UAVs. "Uber is also working with NASA on the unfolding of automated transport control and aviation security solutions. NASA will use its computer modelling and simulations capabilities to evaluate the effects of small aeroplanes - from delivering UAVs to VTOL airliners - in congested conditions.
The NASA will use the information provided by Uber to model a small airliner flying through the Dallas Fort Worth International Airport during periods of heavy use. Analyzing these simulation results will help pinpoint security problems as these new planes join an already congested ATC system, NASA officers said.
For example, NASA would "analyze how traffic accident advisories could be caused by small personal transporters in a common operating model," said Jaiwon Shin, deputy administrative director of NASA's Directorate of Aviation Research, in a statement to a House Panellist in July. In addition to modelling and simulating, these alliances can then be extended to system-level flying demos where we can pinpoint and tackle security and convergence issues in an ever more congested area.
" Over has also worked with airframe builders who develop VTOL electrical craft, among them Aurora Flight Sciences (now a Boeing subsidiary), PipistrelAircraft, Embraer and Bell. In addition, the enterprise has formed property partners to construct the sky ports for the uberAIR intranet. UeberAIR services will be piloted for the first time in 2020 in Dallas, Los Angeles and Dubai, the airline is expecting to start trading in 2023.
