Opportunities to Enhance Air Emergency Medical Service Scale through New Vehicles and Operations
Air Emergency Medical Service (Air EMS) provides unique and important medical trans- port capabilities to society. Air EMS can move patients or live organs more rapidly than surface modes over long distances or congested ...
Assessment of Air Traffic Control for Urban Air Mobility and Unmanned Systems
This paper assesses how the introduction of urban air mobility services and unmanned aircraft systems may challenge Air Traffic Control (ATC) in the United States and what opportunities exist to support these forthcoming ...
Development of Vertiport Capacity Envelopes and Analysis of Their Sensitivity to Topological and Operational Factors
This study develops an Integer Programming (IP) approach to analytically estimate vertiport capacity envelopes. The approach is used to determine the sensitivity of vertiport capacity to the number and layout of touchdown ...
Feasibility Study of Short Takeoff and Landing Urban Air Mobility Vehicles Using Geometric Programming
Electric Short Takeoff and Landing (eSTOL) vehicles are proposed as a path towards implementing an Urban Air Mobility (UAM) network that reduces critical vehicle certification risks and offers advantages in vehicle performance ...
A Geometric Approach Towards Airspace Assessment for Emerging Operations
Emerging Urban Air Mobility (UAM)operators propose to introduce extensive flight networks into metropolitan airspace.However,this airspace currently contains complex legacy airspace constructs and flight operations that ...
Assessing Integration Between Emerging and Conventional Operations in Urban Airspace
This paper investigates the use of low altitude airspace by conventional flight operations in proximity to the San Francisco, Boston, and Atlanta international airports. The purpose of the investigation is two-fold. First, ...
