Flying is possible for everyone! Wherever. Whenever.
Turning this vision into reality, the urban air mobility of the future needs a reliable traffic guidance system. We at D3 are developing this safe and scalable system that organizes air traffic over metropolitan areas and in connecting corridors. We enable metro regions to open up airspace while safeguarding public interest.
Safe by design – following D3’s aviation commercial passenger focus.
Seamless and efficient turnkey solution for all key stakeholders.
Designed for large vehicle numbers and easy adaptation to new environments.
D3 is building creates these digital roads in real time.
Flying above our cities will be different from flying today. Today, flying is human work. Tomorrow, flying will be machine work. No pilots. Very few human air controllers. This means fewer human errors and less costs.
In order to scale Urban Air Mobility, it is an absolute prerequisite that the AAM ecosystem works towards automated flight.
D3’s platform consists of one or several ground module and per-vehicle avionics, transceivers and sensor suites. Our proprietary safety architecture and embedded software allow for central route planning and route clearance as well as additional safety functionalities in the vehicle. The system can accept both piloted and un-piloted, fully automatic vehicles. APIs enable data exchange for application builders, enabling 3rd-party offerings. Airspace owners can manage usage.
Our platform is open to all service-, vehicle and added value providers and offers a complete solution for airspace owners.
In order to manage a significant number of vehicles in constricted airspace, a unified method of commanding these vehicles will be required. This is all the more true when assuming that airspace above cities will not be “up for grabs” but will be heavily segregated into flyable and non-flyable zones, which will further increase traffic density and the requirement for control.
Our D3 core team in Munich consists of experienced serial entrepreneurs, world-class engineers, colleagues with many years of professional and international experience and motivated newcomers. We all have one goal: Make flying available to everyone!
