We’re excited to announce our award of three research contracts from the U.S. Air Force as part of Agility Prime, a non-traditional program to accelerate the commercial market for advanced air mobility vehicles.
The research addresses emerging technology needs and ecosystem-wide capabilities in three key areas: (i) enterprise optimization of urban air mobility satellite communications; (ii) lifecycle tradespace analysis of emerging urban air mobility battery technologies; and (iii) immersive 3D auditory perception in urban air mobility operating environments. Infinity Labs is teamed with The Ohio State University in all efforts.
The solutions being developed by the Infinity Labs team are geared toward “big picture” understanding of synergies amongst enabling technologies, vehicle platforms, and system-of-system implications of commercial and military operations. In addition to addressing specific research questions as part of Agility Prime, the Infinity Labs team will be creating a flexible and open analytical framework that effectively brings digital acquisition tools and methodologies to the urban air mobility market.
In addition to The Ohio State University, the Infinity Labs team also includes Ansys – the global leader in engineering simulation. Scott Granger, Director for USAF Programs at Ansys states, “Ansys is proud to collaborate with Infinity Labs on Agility Prime and push the boundaries of innovation. Digital engineering is a core tenant to Air Force strategy and building virtual twins of UAMs with Infinity Labs will help demonstrate the value of modeling & simulation.”
Infinity Labs is grateful for the support from our research and industrial partners and the sponsorship from the Air Force Research Laboratory. We would also like to thank Dr. Will Roper, SAF/AQ, whose visionary leadership continues to inspire and enable innovators throughout the defense community.
