This proposal will seek to incorporate the operation and constraints discovered via the Discovery and Synchronization Service (DSS) into the Urban Air Mobility (UAM) routing and scheduling problem. In addition, we will advance the DSS capabilities to incorporate additional entity types such as UAM Aeronautical Information Management, Operations, Constraints, UAM Aerodromes, UAM Corridors, and associated resources and tasks. Expanding the role of DSS beyond just operations and constraints, to include geospatial data and services has yet to be explored or demonstrated by the industry.
The proposed effort will directly support NASA's AAM National Campaign in allowing stakeholders to better understand the impact of dynamic urban operations and the relevant constraints and the potential impact on efficiency and safety.
Applications of technology to facilitate UAM routing and scheduling in dynamic and discoverable urban environments is a need shared by FAA and other equivalent Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP), Providers of Services to UAM (PSU's) and the UAM operators that want to support complex drone missions in urban environments will need this capability to ensure safe and efficient scalable operations
