How we support
vertiport operators

We support Vertiport operators both in the planning phase and during ongoing operations. In the planning phase, we assist in identifying ideal locations, planning and designing approach and departure routes, and obtaining regulatory approvals. During operations, our weather management solution provides the best situational awareness of current and forecast weather conditions by combining weather sensors, high-resolution weather models and automated assessment of the impact on flight operations.

Our Analyses for the Assessment Phase

Business Case Design

The availability of eVTOL services is contingent upon prevailing weather conditions. To assess the viability of your Vertiport, it is essential to understand how often the Vertiport will be used and potential seasonal effects. From an infrastructure investment perspective, scenarios that reflect the increasing technological maturity of eVTOL, i.e. higher availability through IFR operations, are highly relevant. Our advanced data analysis provides you with the information you need detailed planning of your business case.

Network planning and site benchmark

When planning your Vertiport network, it is crucial to understand the different options and their relative merits. This will help you identify the most suitable cities or regions for your first Vertiports, given the limitations of current eVTOL technology. Our benchmarking analysis provides a simple and clear comparison of the locations of interest for your go-to-market strategy.

Track Usability Analysis

Once the initial approach and departure tracks have been identified, it is necessary to determine the frequency with which these tracks can be used, given the respective limitations of the eVTOL with regard to headwinds, crosswinds, and tailwinds. These limitations introduce an additional layer of complexity into the planning process. Our track usability analysis also enables more strategic planning questions to be answered, such as how many tracks are needed to achieve 95% usability and how frequently prioritised tracks can be used to avoid different operational situations, such as increased noise pollution.

The SESAR EUREKA project

Unisphere is part of the SESAR EUREKA project, which aims to safely integrate Vertiport operations into existing airspace. The project will unlock the potential of safe and sustainable UAM transportation systems. Unisphere will focus on the development of a data analytics solution for vertiport procedure planning and a service availability forecasting solution to better integrate vertiports into U-Space management.
