EHang has introduced its participation within the European Union “GOF 2.0 Integrated Urban Airspace Validation” undertaking, which is a follow-up to the SESAR JU GOF U-space undertaking. GOF 2.0 is targeted on growing the protected, safe, and sustainable integration of unmanned aerial car (UAV) operations in city airspace.
As one of many 13 consortium members and the main passenger electrical vertical takeoff and touchdown (eVTOL) firm, EHang is predicted to make sure protected flight operations in all levels of airspace to offer honest and environment friendly entry to shared airspace.
SESAR JU GOF 2.0 was initiated in January 2021 to show the compatibility of current Air Traffic Management (ATM) and U-space methods and providers. The undertaking intends to indicate protected integration of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), eVTOLs, and manned operations in a unified, dense city airspace. A deliberate collection of demonstrations within the subsequent two years will embody extremely automated real-time separation and networks for air-ground communication.
EHang is devoted to making a protected, safe, and sustainable integration of UAS Traffic Management (UTM) into ATM methods, aiming to determine a complete UAM ecosystem together with infrastructure, software program, and supporting service methods, which matches the mission of the GOF 2.0 undertaking to allow cost-effective operations of autonomous and semi-autonomous UAVs Beyond the Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) in shared airspace.
EHang believes its EH216 passenger-grade AAVs will probably be progressively accepted for autonomous air taxi providers by Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs), airspace customers, regulatory authorities, and finally the flying public.
