Because the overlap between these is more profound than many realise

The crisis in the Airline industry continues. The uptick in flying in some areas of the globe isn't conveying a comprehensive or convincing picture of sustained recovery. Even so, it's not all bad news. It may be tired, but it's nevertheless true to say there is an opportunity here. Before COVID smashed the industry, things needed attention. Looking at some of these would assist the emergence and the ongoing recovery.

But work must start now.

The "Jetsons" era is only a few years, not decades away. The potential uses for drones, UAV's and other AAV's is expanding with rapidly evolving capability. Projected numbers and types are large. How will it all be managed and integrated with other airspace users and the cities over and through which they will operate? Work is happening worldwide, developing crucial systems and services necessary to make it all work.

4D ATM for drones. What's it mean? What'll it take?

Whether realised or not, cities are the hub of all this activity. Looking to the future, as the airline industry evolves and becomes, with drones, more integrated into crucial multimodal transport ecosystems of the near future, cities need a plan. What end-user needs, those needs of the city and its society need to be reflected back to burgeoning drone operators to ensure harmonised integration into the ecosystems of the city?

What are the needs and requirements? How might it all fit together?

The solution to all these seemingly unrelated ecosystems have solutions based on very similar foundations.

The new tech and hands-on aspects of the new world will be exciting. But turning an idea into a practical, workable and successful reality is a very different thing, and it is what Closed Loop does. The how and why requires attention to mundane but essential stuff like strategy, planning and implementation - the why and how, who's getting affected and what the dividends are; now that's crucial!
