VIMANA Blockchain Airspace Ecosystem and AAV

Not only a UTM but an aircraft as well coming out of the dark this week in Dubai. Announcements will be made about partnerships and the airspace management system.

The AAV (Autonomous Aerial Vehicles) is a tilt-rotor that can lift up to 150kg (330lbs). If there are truely any serious contenders in this space I would like to see them flying at Farnborough 2018, in 2010 FIA was the first grown-up air display to include sUAS as part of the display program, lets see if folks are prepared to get their PAV’s out. I think I prefer the old term Personal Air Vehicle (PAV).

VIMANA is a manufacturer of VTOL AAV 4-seater (an unattended aerial vehicle employed in daily passenger and cargo on-demand Urban Air Mobility in the autonomous transportation mode) and the operator of VIMANA Blockchain Airspace Ecosystem – the first global blockchain-based and blockchain-regulated Decentralized UAS Traffic Management (D-UTM) running on the next generation Air Traffic Control Protocol.

Details of the UTM are scant at the moment, let’s see what rolls out. Truth be told, UTM is where the money really is.
