Eve Air Mobility and Moviation, South Korea’s first Urban Air Mobility (UAM) service provider, announced the signature of a Letter of Intent to purchase Eve’s Urban Air Traffic Management solution. 

This software is poised to revolutionize UAM by providing critical traffic management services that are crucial for scaling up this futuristic mode of transportation.

South Korea UAM Advancement

Eve’s Urban ATM (Air Traffic Management) concept is now at the forefront of Korea’s K-UAM Grand Challenge, a meticulously planned program aimed at demonstrating the safety and efficacy of UAM vehicles in urban settings.

These tests are a significant step towards commercializing UAM in Korea by 2025. South Korea, a pioneer in laying the groundwork for UAM, recognizes the importance of Eve’s Urban ATM technology in ushering in safe and scalable UAM operations.

David Rottblatt, the Vice President of Sales and Government Affairs at Eve Air Mobility, highlights the significance of this collaboration.

He states, “Eve’s Urban ATM solution, based on existing air traffic control software, will serve various stakeholders, including air navigation service providers, urban authorities, fleet operators, vertiport operators, and other UAM enthusiasts.”

Both Eve and Moviation are deeply committed to advancing the global UAM industry. They understand the importance of systematically accumulating and sharing data related to Urban Air Traffic Management (UATM).

Min Shin, CEO at Moviation, emphasizes their dedication to delivering secure and reliable UAM services in South Korea through cutting-edge technology.

This commitment extends to seamless integration of the UATM system, achieved through rigorous testing and systematic data collection, in close collaboration with Eve.

Holistic Approach to Urban Air Mobility

Eve is not just focused on the skies; they are revolutionizing the entire urban air environment.

 From pre-flight preparations to post-landing procedures, Eve is developing integrated systems, services, and technologies that will ensure the safe and efficient operation of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles.

These innovations will enable the coexistence of eVTOLs with other airspace users, paving the way for autonomous flight.

Eve’s journey towards creating a safer and more efficient UAM ecosystem has not been a solo flight. They have enlisted the support of Atech, Embraer’s Air Traffic Control technology and system integrator company.

Atech’s experience in developing aviation-grade products from the ATM systems in Brazil adds a strong foundation to Eve’s UATM software solution.

Additionally, Eve continues to collaborate with regulators, customers, air navigation service providers, fleet operators, vertiport developers, airports, and other stakeholders in the UAM ecosystem worldwide.

Together, they are advancing concepts and developing technology to facilitate the initial operation and scaling of UAM operations from an ATM perspective.
