Researchers explore UAM from a System of Systems (SoS) perspective
Researchers at the Hamburg, Germany-based German Aerospace Center, Institute of System Architectures in Aeronautics (DLR), wanted to understand how different fully electric urban air mobility (UAM) aircraft architecture might affect the overall system of systems’ (SoS’) capability. (SoS refers to a complex system composed of multiple systems that work together to achieve what can’t be…
