ATM-X PAAV Presents at the Multiple Operators, Multiple Vehicles (m:N) Working Group Meeting
February 15, 2022

On February 9, 2022, the ATM-X Project’s Pathfinding for Airspace with Autonomous Vehicles (PAAV) Subproject presented an overview and their Concept of Operations research, at the Multi-Vehicle Working Group (large Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) subgroup) meeting. The working group was formed by NASA under the Autonomous Systems (AS) discipline of the Transformative Tools and Technologies (TTT) Project. A central goal of this Working Group (WG) is to bring together a broad range of interested stakeholders from government, industry, and academia. Together, they will identify barriers to m:N operations, an operational configuration that envisions a ratio of multiple operators (m) controlling multiple vehicles (N) between them. The barriers addressed by the WG range from technical, regulatory, safety assurance, and community acceptance. The WG ultimately plans to work with regulators to identify existing regulations and determine what needs to be done to accommodate m:N operations in the future. The meeting included over 30 attendees from industry and government. The PAAV team also presented their plans for the upcoming Tabletop activity, to solicit feedback on the content and approach. The Tabletop is planned for Spring 2022 and is intended to identify shortfalls, solutions, and gaps related to the integration of large UAS cargo operations in the national airspace system (NAS), under future higher-autonomy (m:N) paradigms, and will result in a joint deliverable between ATM-X PAAV and TTT AS. The Tabletop is a follow-on to table-top activities conducted in 2021 with a focus on near-term assumptions such as 1:1 operations. The meeting concluded with a plan to organize additional meetings leading up to the Tabletop activity.
