Eve and Volatus Infrastructure strike agreement for UATM software
Volatus Infrastructure is to use Eve’s Urban Air Traffic Management (UATM) software in its vertiports.
Eve has signed a Letter of Intent (LoI) to supply its UATM solution to Volatus which will be used to improve the capacity and efficiency of Volatus’ vertiports. Eve’s UATM software is an “agnostic solution” that plans to enable the integration of all airspace users in urban environments.
Grant Fisk, co-founder, Volatus Infrastructure, said: “Eve’s new vertiport software solution will enable Volatus to ensure safe, reliable and efficient eVTOL flight operations. It’s vitally important to get these systems up and running so that when the FAA approves the first eVTOL vehicle, we are ready to serve them. Together, we are laying a rock-solid foundation that the UAM industry will be building upon for decades.”
Andre Stein, co-CEO of Eve said existing software has not been designed specifically to support and maximise the capacity and efficiency of vertiports. “This [agreement] supports our strategy of not only developing an eVTOL, but also providing a comprehensive suite of services and support. By developing a vertiport automation software for Volatus, we will help support the efficient operation and growth of the industry,” said Stein.
