Moviation and OneSky to accumulate future UAM route data

Kore­an UAM Start­up Movi­a­tion is set to launch what it claims to be South Kore­a’s first VTOL UAM plat­form ser­vice, hav­ing part­nered with OneSky to lay the foun­da­tion for essen­tial busi­ness oper­a­tions such as route plan­ning and air­space data accu­mu­la­tion.

Movi­a­tion CEO Min Shin revealed plans to start VTOL air ser­vices in the lat­ter half of the year, which will enable pas­sen­gers to trav­el from Seoul’s Gang­nam dis­trict to Incheon Inter­na­tion­al Air­port in 15 min­utes.

The air­craft will oper­ate with­in an alti­tude of one to two thou­sand feet, align­ing with the planned con­struc­tion of actu­al UAM cor­ri­dors and expe­dit­ing the col­lec­tion of cru­cial oper­a­tional data for future UAM cor­ri­dors.

OneSky is a glob­al­ly recog­nised unmanned air­craft sys­tems traf­fic man­age­ment com­pa­ny spe­cial­is­ing in air­space analy­sis, oper­a­tion, and traf­fic man­age­ment solu­tions for avi­a­tion.

OneSky has been col­lab­o­rat­ing with NASA since 2021 to design and imple­ment the low-alti­tude route traf­fic sys­tem in the Unit­ed States. More recent­ly, OneSky coop­er­at­ed with the Korea Aero­space Research Insti­tute (KARI) and Hyundai Motor cor­po­ra­tion via the OneSky Future of Flight pro­gram, demon­strat­ing its under­stand­ing of Kore­a’s air­space and trans­porta­tion needs.

Both com­pa­nies are com­mit­ted to con­tribut­ing to the glob­al advance­ment of the UAM indus­try through the sys­tem­at­ic accu­mu­la­tion and dis­sem­i­na­tion of data. Movi­a­tion aims to present a cut­ting-edge mod­el of urban air trans­porta­tion ser­vices, tai­lored to the unique geo­graph­i­cal and envi­ron­men­tal attrib­ut­es of South Korea.

Min Shin is ded­i­cat­ed to evolv­ing Movi­a­tion into a pre­em­i­nent ser­vice plat­form com­pa­ny, catalysing the rapid growth of South Kore­a’s flour­ish­ing UAM indus­try.

In May, Echo­dyne became a mem­ber of the OneSky Future of Flight Pro­gram. The com­pa­ny designs and deliv­ers high-per­for­mance, com­pact, sol­id-state radars based on the company’s pro­pri­etary meta­ma­te­ri­als elec­tron­ic scan­ning array (MESA) tech­nol­o­gy.
