ANRA Technologies and NAVOS Air announced a collaboration to incorporate flightpath procedures into ANRA’s Vertiport Management Service for VTOL aircraft operations for Urban Air Mobility. This joint undertaking combines first-of-its-kind services and technologies to accelerate safe and compliant vertiport implementation in the United States. NAVOS Air is authorized by FAA to develop and maintain non-Part 97 (special) satellite-based performance-based navigation instrument flight procedures and to conduct Heliport evaluation and designation. 

Ty Le Roy, Chief Designer at NAVOS Air, said: “As an extension of our Advanced Air Mobility instrument procedure integration work, we were able to leverage our helicopter, low-level flight and regulatory experience to obtain the first FAA conditional approval for a vertiport. Building upon this experience in our new partnership with ANRA, we will design FAA-compliant flight path infrastructure that will be incorporated into ANRA’s software for supporting VTOL aircraft arrivals and departures from vertiports.”

Amit Ganjoo, Founder and CEO of ANRA Technologies, commented: "While many vertiport providers are busy building the physical infrastructure and conceptualizing the passenger experience, ANRA has developed the digital layer. Partnering with NAVOS allows us to bring a more complete solution to the market faster, especially when combined with our Urban Air Mobility traffic management technology."

ANRA recently launched its Vertiport Management System , a versatile, web-based software platform designed to adapt to various aircraft, vertiports, and locations by intelligently exchanging real-time data with all the necessary services to facilitate vertiport operations. The ANRA-NAVOS partnership will also benefit from ANRA’ experience developing its UAM traffic management capability with the FAA, NASA, and internationally. It will allow UAM operators to plan and execute their flight operations from pad to pad efficiently, supported by a comprehensive suite of services.
