Aloft Technologies, Inc., a trailblazer in drone fleet and airspace management, has been selected to participate in the prestigious North Texas Airspace Awareness Project. This selection underscores Aloft’s commitment to shaping the future of low-altitude airspace and Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) in one of the nation’s most dynamic regions. The North Texas Airspace Awareness Project, spearheaded by the North Central Texas Council of Governments (NCTCOG), aims to integrate Advanced Air Mobility (AAM) solutions, including the exciting potential of scalable drone delivery and, ultimately, air taxis, into the region’s airspace. Aloft’s involvement in this project is a testament to its innovative approach to UTM (UAS Traffic Management) technologies and its patented dynamic airspace platform.
As a participant in this groundbreaking project, Aloft will leverage its extensive expertise in managing drone operations and its robust patent portfolio, including dynamic airspace and remote identification technologies. Phase I of the project will focus on cities across North Texas leveraging Aloft Geo to publish local safety advisories across the Aloft platform, including B4UFLY. Aloft’s role will be crucial in ensuring the safe and efficient integration of various aerial activities, from commercial drone operations to the anticipated advent of air taxis, thereby revolutionizing AAM.
Aloft’s selection is not just a milestone for the company but also a significant development for North Texas. The region is already a focal point of UTM innovation, being home to the FAA’s first UTM Key Site and various Supplemental Data Service Providers (SDSPs), including advanced weather data and DSS systems, for example. Aloft’s leadership in this project will further cement North Texas as a hub for aerospace innovation and development.
Looking ahead, Aloft’s involvement in the North Texas Airspace Awareness Project is set to pave the way for a new era in low-altitude airspace management. This initiative aligns with Aloft’s vision of not only advancing drone technology but also laying the groundwork for the integration of AAM into everyday life, thereby transforming the landscape of urban transportation.
“We are thrilled to be selected for the North Texas Airspace Awareness Project, a milestone that not only recognizes Aloft’s commitment to innovation in airspace management but also positions us at the forefront of the evolving landscape of mobility. This project is more than just an integration of advanced technologies; it’s a leap toward the future where air taxis and uncrewed aircraft seamlessly coexist in our skies and in concert with legacy aviation. Our involvement in this initiative is a testament to our team’s relentless pursuit of excellence, and safety, and our vision to redefine the boundaries of aerial transportation. We are proud to lead the way in North Texas, a region rapidly becoming synonymous with aerospace innovation, and are excited about the possibilities this project unlocks for safer, more efficient, and more connected communities.” – Jon, CEO of Aloft Technologies, Inc.
