Delivering Reliability, Safety, and Security to Electric Vertical Takeoff and Landing Vehicles

From the Wright brothers’ first flight off the sands of Kitty Hawk to supersonic jets and hypersonic vehicles, the aerospace industry has steadily advanced from one innovative technology to another. Over the years, experts have matured and leveraged new technologies and techniques to enable the development of air vehicles that would meet new flying challenges. 

Today, one of the most exciting opportunities is the application of electric vertical takeoff and landing (eVTOL) vehicles to realize advanced air mobility (AAM) in support of dual-use commercial and military missions.

To bring advanced eVTOL technology and innovation to the market faster and to meet AAM challenges, the U.S. Air Force has launched a program known as Agility Prime. It has allowed the U.S. Air Force to open a variety of resources, such as testing sites and expertise, to support the commercial eVTOL industry and bring its players together to enable safety, security standards, and more. Wind River®, a software solutions leader in the aerospace and defense market, is committed to helping bring eVTOL to reality with its full portfolio of software products that deliver proven reliability, safety, and security to flight technology.
