What: Dayton, Ohio -- The AAM industry is growing at an unprecedented rate thanks in part to the investment by the U.S. Department of the Air Force, Department of Transportation, and NASA in programs like Agility Prime, DriveOhio, FlyOhio, Ohio UAS Center, the Ohio Federal Research Network and the NASA National Campaign. The Advanced Air Mobility Research and Transition Collider hosted by the Ohio Federal Research Network, DriveOhio, FlyOhio, Ohio UAS Center and JobsOhio, provides attendees the unique opportunity to connect with Ohio-based supply chain vendors, Original Equipment Manufacturers and academia on innovative AAM-related research and development.

Why: Ohio is poised, due to the many years working with unmanned aerial systems (UAS) and related technologies, to lead a third revolution in flight – Advanced Air Mobility. Ohio’s investments – which includes DriveOhio, FlyOhio, Ohio UAS Center, SkyVision, the Ohio Federal Research Network, Remote Towers, UAS Traffic Management, etc.– have secured Ohio’s prominence as a leader in AAM.  Ohio-based AAM-related companies, academics and technologies will be represented at the AAM Research and Transition Collider. Thought leaders will present on funding opportunities, research, and development requirements for AAM viability, and on Ohio’s AAM strategy. The objective is to highlight the future of AAM in Ohio, provide attendees networking and partnership development opportunities, and answer participant questions. Join our Collider to connect with Ohio AAM leadership and learn how to collaborate on the statewide AAM strategy!
