Eve Air Mobility has signed a letter of intent (LOI) with Bluenest, an AAM division of Spain-headquartered transport infrastructure operator Globalvia with a focus on vertiport infrastructure, to supply Eve's urban air traffic management (UATM) software solution in support of future vertiport automation systems. As part of the agreement, the companies will jointly study the use of the software for UAM operations by developing an operational model in specific regions and missions according to Bluenest's needs.
“We firmly believe that collaboration is the best way to make the future air mobility a reality,” says Bluenext managing director Gema Ferrero. “Therefore, through this strategic collaboration, Eve and Bluenest will be able to better manage vertiport urban air mobility operations and related infrastructure, thus bonding sky and ground between the two companies.”
“Collaborating with Bluenest by Globalvia will further increase industry knowledge and perception of Eve as a strong provider of UATM solutions and continue to foster our understanding of vertiport operations,” adds Eve co-CEO Andre Stein. “Our software will support the integrated operation of UAM aircraft, optimising operational performance and safety, as well as preparing for both scale and eventual integration of uncrewed vehicles.”
Eve's UATM software is an agnostic solution aiming to maximise vertiport efficiency and ensure high resource utilisation as well as safe, effective air traffic management. Eve's further development of its UATM customer base demonstrates its commitment to safe and successful vertiport operations and the full ecosystem necessary for a robust UAM market. Bluenest enters a selected group of partners to better improve its UAM operations.
