UNLOCKING THE FUTURE
FOR URBAN AIRSPACE

REALIZING URBAN AIR MOBILITY THROUGH NEXT-GENERATION AIR TRAFFIC CONTROL

As demand for air cargo and passenger transportation grows in urban spaces, the envisioned airspace of the future is becoming increasingly congested with delivery drones, air taxis, and other forms of urban air mobility (UAM). The rise in aerial traffic presents a complex challenge that traditional air traffic management systems are ill-equipped to handle.

OUR MISSION

Empowering aviation to reach new heights with advanced software.

Project Orion is developing an AI-enabled Traffic Management System in partnership with NASA. Our mission is to transform urban air mobility and change the future of air transportation as we know it, making it safer, more efficient, and more accessible to people around the world.
