Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) envisions the lower airspace alive with uncrewed aerial vehicles (UAVs). Over time, new generations of aircraft with novel propulsion systems and vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capabilities will move goods and people across communities with greater economic and environmental efficiency.
Two distinct needs will emerge, each based on sensor capabilities that extend onboard or remote pilot capabilities for beyond the visual line of sight (BVLOS) flight. One, small aircraft delivering things from the lifesaving to the trivial. Two, larger aircraft ferrying passengers and delivering cargo. Each will have safety performance requirements that only radar can deliver.
