Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with ResilienX to collaborate on their eVTOL aircraft vertiport project at Wittman Regional Airport in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

VI&E Solutions aims to engage ResilienX in providing their FRAIHMWORK® solution as an in-time aviation safety management system (IASMS) capability. ResilienX has developed a platform around fault tolerance, safety assurance and maintenance of complex systems of systems.

As vertiports move towards becoming more like an airport and less like a concrete slab, Volatus envisions a complex system including battery charging, surveillance, comms, weather sensors, networking equipment and all of the digital infrastructure needed to manage and direct operations and personnel.

Dan Sloat, CEO of VI&E Solutions, said: “As a leader in reliable, affordable physical infrastructure for Advanced Air Mobility, we at VI&E Solutions are keen to forge partnerships with leaders in robust digital infrastructure.

“Ryan and Carter are dedicated professionals who understand that interoperability is absolutely essential. Leveraging the operational expertise of ResilienX will prove invaluable in the long run.”

ResilienX also monitors the health, integrity, and performance of these diverse systems and orchestrates mitigations to gracefully degrade as adverse or off-nominal conditions occur.

Ryan Pleskach, CEO of ResilienX, added: We are thrilled that VI&E Solutions has put their trust in us to monitor the health and performance of this diverse ecosystem. We look forward to working through all of the edge cases which will give regulators and the public around the world confidence in VI&E Solutions’ emerging vertiport network.”

Founded in 2021, Volatus Infrastructure & Energy Solutions is connecting communities with best-in-class eVTOL infrastructure technology to ensure society is ready for the future.

It offers three modular vertiport designs and universal charging stations for electric vehicles across all mediums: air, land and sea. By tailoring to specific customer needs and incorporating the latest technologies, their work positively impacts clients and the communities they serve globally.

This latest announcement from Volatus follows on from a recent partnership it confirmed with LYTE Aviation, where it will look to expand refuelling options at vertiports in the USA. And earlier this month, Volatus and eVertiSKY signed ‘a strategic agreement’ outlining a number of joint Urban Air Mobility projects which include collaborating at the 2024 UAM Living Lab.
