Using Technology to Stay Ahead of Advanced Air Mobility Developments

Advanced Air mobility

All kinds of Advanced Air Vehicles (AAVs) and new and innovative aircraft propulsion systems, including all-electric engines, have been delivering momentous changes to the commercial aviation industry in recent years.

At the same time, dozens of new Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) startups have burst onto the scene, with innovative ideas for bold designs and forward-looking technologies that start with fresh-sheet-of-paper AAV concepts, bringing next-generation aviation technology to the edge of what is possible.

In our latest research brief, Using Technology to Stay Ahead of Advanced Air Mobility Developments, published in partnership with IFS, we analyze the changing market, from traditional jet-engine-powered aircraft of today to proof-of-concept aircraft designs and aviation propulsion systems of tomorrow. We also dive into revolutionary types of unmanned and crewed aircraft that are being proposed, including AAVs with multi-copter, vectored thrust, lift + cruise, and hybrid propulsion systems.

To accommodate these constant advances, these young AAM companies must adopt the right technology tools and enterprise software platforms that will help them turn their concepts into business successes and fulfill their evolving business management needs as they climb to dizzying heights of growth and innovation.

In this research brief you will learn:

  • How jet engine-powered aircraft are still the market leaders in the established commercial aircraft segment today, but like automobiles and trucks in their marketplaces, electrification of aircraft is broadly becoming a propulsion system of the future in proof-of-concept projects and in trials.
  • How AAMs that are proposing and building these new AAVs need sophisticated, specialized enterprise software to manage and drive the development of their latest aircraft, including the huge quantities of data that will be generated and required.
  • That these AAMs also require modern and flexible manufacturing systems to support moving their concept aircraft and specialized new propulsion systems to mass production at scale.
  • How these AAM startups of today also need modern back-office systems that introduce built-in best practices that will speed and support the evolution of nascent AAMs vendors as they are nurtured, grown, and transformed into the major aircraft manufacturers of the future.

The capabilities of the IFS Cloud Platform can dramatically help AAMs meet these new challenges by providing broad and creative tools to build flexible, scalable, aviation-focused, composable applications using IFS components that meet the demands of tomorrow’s aviation industry.

The marketplace is seeing more stand-out OEMs manufacturing the next-generation of aircraft, but there is still more progress to be made in helping AAMs gain the deep knowledge and experience they need to create the supporting IT infrastructure to fully develop and manage these new air vehicles and their latest propulsion systems.

With the IFS Cloud Platform, the AAMs of today and tomorrow gain the insights and guidance that they need using aviation-targeted applications that cover the gamut of functional areas that AAV companies must address. That includes manufacturing, ongoing  airworthiness, maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO), field service management, and facilities management such as vertiports and charging infrastructure to support the operations of their aircraft.

That is where IFS comes in, delivering enterprise software that provides the needed tools for management of facilities, projects, construction, and more, all in a single streamlined and intuitive platform.
