AAM will introduce the case where passengers and cargo will be transported by highly automated, remotely piloted, or optionally piloted aircraft.
The panel will investigate requirements in terms traffic management services to support such operations and whether these requirements will lead AAM towards solutions similar to RPAS. In addition, the panel will discuss how UTM and ATM will be able to manage AAM operations particularly as we move towards highly automated operations.
This panel will address issues such as:
Is UTM still a valid and reliable solution to manage AAM from a safety and a roles and responsibilities perspective? If so, what are the requirements to fulfill? Is ATM envisaged to be the fastest and easiest enabler solution in the short term? How would UTM and ATM have to work together to facilitate such operations?
