Building George Jetson’s Car Part One – Inside Advanced Air Mobility

By Quinn Foster

The aerospace and defense industry has so many exciting technologies being developed. One that might be brought to fruition in the coming years is advanced air mobility (AAM), a new class of aircraft that promises fast transport for cargo and passengers across short distances such as between and within cities. However, there are multiple challenges to overcome to see AAM vehicles become widespread. How can digital transformation aid that goal?

In this episode, Todd Tuthill, Vice President of A&D for Siemens Digital Industries Software, kicks off a new arc exploring AAM and its challenges by introducing the concept of AAM vehicles. He goes into the different requirements and considerations AAM has compared to traditional aircraft, and identifies the four key challenges for companies in the AAM sector.

In this episode, you will learn:

  • The definition of what AAM vehicles are
  • How they differ from existing aircraft
  • The largest challenges companies working in AAM will face
