Thales, Presagis, Université Laval combine their expertise to increase autonomy in advanced air mobility solutions


The Consortium for Research and Innovation in Aerospace in Quebec (CRIAQ) is pleased to announce the latest progress on its Autonomy of Future Air Mobility (AMAF) project with Thales, Presagis (now TXT) and Université Laval. The purpose of this project is to structure the increasing autonomy of vehicles involved in advanced air mobility, a fast-growing segment of the aerospace market that is attracting very high levels of R&D investments worldwide.

Over the last 40 years, aircraft have become increasingly reliant on automated functions to simplify tasks for aircrew and improve flight safety, but new forms of mobility such as future air taxis and fully autonomous drones herald the arrival of a new paradigm.

The aim of the Autonomy of Future Air Mobility (AMAF) project is to propose a structured framework for the autonomy of new regional and urban air mobility solutions in Quebec through two complementary approaches. Capitalising on Quebec’s vibrant technological ecosystem, the project partners intend to establish the province’s role as a world-class hub for digital aviation systems.
