Investigation of Communications Involved in Near term UAM Operations  (2019)
Abstract Header
The present research explored whether the implementation of a letter of agreement (LOA), or pre-established written terms of engagement, would reduce controller communication associated workload in a HITL study simulating a near-term UAM infrastructure with varying traffic levels. Current helicopter routes, including modified versions, and communication procedures were outlined in the LOA. Time spent communicating was reduced under both conditions featuring a LOA, for current and modified routes, compared to present day procedures without a LOA. Results suggest that utilizing current-day helicopter routes and implementing a LOA may prove beneficial for near-term low-density and low-tempo UAM operations.
