Skyway and Moonware Join Forces to Shape the Future of Air Transportation

Skyway and Moonware Announce Groundbreaking Partnership to Revolutionize the Future of Advanced Aerial Mobility

Skyway, a leader in air traffic navigation and vertiport airspace management services, and Moonware, a venture-backed startup developing automated solutions for aviation ground operations, are proud to announce a strategic partnership to accelerate ground infrastructure readiness for advanced aerial mobility. With the goal of digitally integrating ground operations into Urban Air Mobility (UAM) systems, this partnership will enable a streamlined airside workflow and extended navigation services from start to end.

Moonware, with its AI-powered software and autonomous ground vehicles, offers integrated product suites to provide UAM service providers with systems that efficiently manage airfield ground operations, safely meeting flight throughput requirements. Their Airside OS, HALO, is an app-based tool designed to coordinate and automate aviation ground services, providing real-time airside visibility and critical information to the UATM operation center.

With the deployment of Moonware’s autonomous and electric pushback vehicle, ATLAS, the partnership will seek to provide aircraft manufacturers with an extended range through engine-off taxiing operations, reducing energy consumption and vertiport noise. This collaboration marks a significant step towards the future of advanced aerial mobility and provides a safe and reliable passenger experience from beginning to end.

The principal challenges involved with electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) ground operations are the intrinsic limitations of self-taxiing aircraft, such as battery constraints and range requirements. As more vertiports are developed, adopting standardized systems that can scale across a wide variety of operational requirements is essential. This partnership will provide the most reliable infrastructure for Urban Air Mobility and bring the next evolution in automated traffic services to airline operators.

“Effective ground operations are critical to establishing long-term revenue growth for vertiport stakeholders, including airline operators,” says Clifford Cruz, CEO of Skyway. “Vertiport uptime and organization of assets via Moonware’s technologies will increase Skyway’s facility operation offerings value proposition.”

“This partnership enables ground operations to be digitally integrated into UATM systems from the very start, agnostic of the type of airfield, and equips operators with a tool that will streamline their airside workflow,” says Javier Vidal, CEO of Moonware.

Together, Skyway and Moonware will tackle the challenges of the industry and pave the way for a seamless passenger experience. This collaboration marks a significant milestone in the journey towards a future of advanced aerial mobility, where the sky is no longer the limit.
