Reinvent the Sky: With the Rise of Urban Air Mobility how are Companies able to Adapt to Change?

The process of innovation is continuously changing everywhere on the earth. We live in one of the most monumental periods in the history of urban air mobility industry marked by the most significant amount of innovation and disruption. 

However, the development of aircraft inventions is progressing rapidly, and many manufacturers require assistance to keep up with the upcoming innovation and rising safety and aesthetic standards worldwide. Every other day, there are tales of new advancements in space exploration, supersonic travel, defensive systems, and electric aircraft.  

The aerospace industry is well-established, carries a high level of regulation, and features an unreasonably high barrier to entry. Because the traditional structure has reached the limit of its aerodynamic performance, a step change in performance and efficiency in the aerospace engineering sector demands a technological shift and a new aircraft layout. 

Urban Air Mobility Innovation

The circulation of people and goods inside cities is the primary focus of urban air mobility. When all relevant aspects are considered, such as infrastructure, technology, politics, and culture, navigating cities is a complicated subject with a long past and a technology-driven future that will become increasingly complex. The fundamental challenges of traversing a city have been around since humans began to inhabit urban areas and haven’t gone away. 

There will always be a time when transportation innovation, urban population expansion, and the capacity of municipal governments to keep up with limited resources will be in harmony with one another. However, the pressure cities are under today is unlike anything seen. 

How can companies pivot to change?

To solve issues of sustainability as well as congestion in metropolitan areas, innovative mobility solutions are required. Flying vehicles developed by forward-thinking new enterprises that have recently entered the market are creating a stir. On the other hand, they need the appropriate tools to apply these developments successfully. 

Collaboration on the Cloud

Through cloud-based collaboration, you can shorten the time it takes to bring a product from concept to certification while reducing associated costs. Access to integrated modeling and simulation processes, which use virtual prototyping and digital validation of new technologies, is available to businesses of any size. Accelerate the process of product type certification and establish yourself as the market leader. Deliver a peaceful flight experience that satisfies urban noise concerns.

Don’t just take our word for it: See how Vertical Aerospace leverage 3DEXPERIENCE to Reinvent the Sky

Vertical Aerospace is building its revolutionary electric aircraft and defining its processes on the 3DEXPERIENCE platform on the Cloud with the Reinvent the Sky industry solution experience. This gives the company access to enterprise-level design, engineering and simulation software in a single, secure, standards-based environment.

With all its operations running on the cloud, Vertical Aerospace has the agility it needs to accelerate product development. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform supports the company’s efforts to develop its product and processes in parallel and build a virtual twin of its aircraft that incorporates all disciplines and operations. This will help the company to navigate the complex certification process and maintain full traceability throughout the lifecycle of the aircraft.

“We’re in the process of writing a new chapter in the aviation industry. We’re working with emerging technologies, including intuitive and safe flight control technologies from Honeywell. At the same time, we’re defining a new certification basis and collaborating with leading companies around the globe. The 3DEXPERIENCE platform will help us to develop and share the critical steps of requirements, ensure we’re developing the aircraft according to those requirements, do validation and also manage the certification of the aircraft with the authorities. It’s a one-stop-shop and single source of truth for Vertical Aerospace and our business partners that allows us to work concurrently wherever we are in the world.”
