PABLO AIR contributes to NASA demonstration project

PABLO AIR (CEO, Kim Young-Joon) , a member of the Born2Global Centre,  announced that it will participate in a project to improve urban airspace safety hosted by the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA)’s Aeronautics Research Mission Directorate. This project feeds into NASA’s larger vision for Advanced Air Mobility.

The testing will happen in the Hampton Roads, Virginia area where NASA’s Langley Research Center is located from this October to July next year. The project will include collaboration from five companies: PABLO AIR, ResilienX, TruWeather, Spright and Longbow. PABLO AIR will install wind speed sensors on its multicopter delivery drone and collect and utilize data through the smart traffic management system (PAMNet, PABLO AIR Mobility Network).

Through this effort, PABLO AIR will help collect and analyze real-time wind speed data that significantly affects flight stability. The prediction of the wind speed model helps ensure the stability of the flight path and identifies the effect on the battery, thereby improving flight efficiency.

Regarding the project with NASA, Lee Chan-Joo, C.O.O of the U.S. branch of PABLO AIR, said, “This is a great project to bolster the UAS industry with a proven set of market leaders. We are excited to work with NASA and the ResilienX team to help enhance the safety features of our UAS operations. This effort represents an excellent opportunity for PABLO AIR to serve as a bridge and enhance cooperation between the U.S and the Republic of Korea, and to set the bar for safe UAS environments globally.”

PABLO AIR established a branch in Arizona last year. This year, along with NUAIR (Northeast UAS Airspace Integration Research), the company is steadily conducting drone delivery demonstrations at Griffiss International Airport in New York.


Since its first step into the unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) market in 2018 in South Korea, PABLO AIR has provided a wide array of integrated drone solutions, including UAV control system, aircraft development, and drone delivery platform and service. In addition, PABLO AIR is continuously carrying forward research and development, and commercialization at home and abroad to become a pioneer of the global UAV industry. Furthermore, with the establishment of the U.S. branch as a starting point in 2021, it has been recognized for its technological prowess in the global UAV market.
