EHang Holdings has entered into a collaboration agreement with ENAIRE, Spain's national air navigation services provider and future provider of common information services for U-space airspace, to promote research, development and innovation in the fields of U-space and urban air mobility (UAM) in Spain and Europe.
The parties seek to collaborate in national and international innovation initiatives for the execution of activities of common interest. The collaboration will focus, among other things, on the research of solutions and the development of potential procedures, use cases, digital tools and prototypes.
The collaboration will also allow the parties to promote the deployment of U-space and UAM services and contribute to the digital and technological development for the provision of aeronautical services.
EHang Europe and Latin America COO Victoria Xiang says: "Through the collaboration with ENAIRE, EHang seeks to support the development and implementation of new digital technologies for the integration of AAVs and the implementation of a safe, sustainable and efficient UAM.”
ENAIRE business development director María Luz de Mateo is responsible for the U-space area. She adds: "The signing of this collaboration protocol with EHang is an example of ENAIRE's commitment to the industry, to promote the development and early deployment of U-space services and urban air mobility in Spain, given the future role of ENAIRE in the provision of common information services for U-space airspace in national territory.”
