SkyGrid, NASA Team Up to Safely Integrate Autonomous Systems Into National Airspace

SkyGrid, a company formed by Boeing and SparkCognition, has partnered with NASA Langley Research Center on the System-Wide Safety project to ensure the safe integration of unmanned aircraft systems into the National Airspace System.

The effort is split into two principal components: demonstrating and integrating SkyGrid’s traffic surveillance software into the UAS Traffic Management System and the Provider of Unmanned Aerial Mobility Services and exploring use cases, including life-saving para-public services and cargo delivery, that enhance transportation effectiveness, SkyGrid said.

The collaboration supports NASA Langley’s strategy to advance autonomous aviation and increase airspace safety and access and contributes to the creation of standards and procedures for safe autonomous aircraft systems operations.

“The System-Wide Safety project is committed to innovating how we predict, analyze, and mitigate risks in aviation as it becomes more complex and integrated with advanced systems,” said Kyle Ellis, the manager for the said NASA project. “By working with SkyGrid, we will leverage their technological advancements to refine our advanced safety models and tools,” he added.
