Project details

(A) Development of traffic management system involving the harmonized operation of multiple aircrafts

This project will conduct comprehensive R&D of traffic management targeted at AAM to ensure that technological innovation and social implementation move forward as one.

(B) Operation verification for actual flights of AAM

The project will establish operation methods and safety assurance procedures aimed at enabling AAM flights at the Osaka, Kansai Expo 2025.

(C) R&D of autonomous flight and high-density operation

R&D will be carried out on advanced fundamental technologies focused on operations at AAM Maturity Level By ReAMo (Maturity Level *) 4 or higher.

* see https://www.nedo.go.jp/content/100944265.pdf for definitions of Maturity Levels.

Mid-term goals (FY2024)

  • Create a partial verification model equivalent to Maturity Level 2 to 3, and verify integrated connections through actual aircraft and partial simulation.
  • Establish candidate proposals for standardization of fundamental technologies focused on Maturity Level 4.
  • Present requirements necessary for mutual connections among UAS Service Providers(UASSPs) through verfications, and propose Requirements for UASSP certification that incorporate these requirements.

Final goals (FY2026)

  • Establish fundamental technologies focused on a level equivalent to Maturity Level 4 and partial verification models of subsystems, and verify overall connections through a simulator and partial aircraft.

R&D Activities

R&D Results

1.Introduction of demonstration experiment

We plan to conduct a phased demonstration experiment in three years with the aim of establishing an Advanced Air Mobility operation and vertiport operation method.

 【FY2022】 Feb.2023(click here
  ・We verified the operation methods for “regular flights” (normal scenario) using helicopter.

 【FY2023】 Dec.2023(click here
  ・We used a helicopter to verify the operation methods assuming “the occurrence of irregularities”.
  ・In the “normal scenario”, we used an actual aircraft of Advanced Air Mobility to verify the operation methods.
