ASL Aviation Holdings, Reliable Robotics to Develop a New Autonomous Aircraft Program

Global aviation services provider ASL Aviation Holdings and Reliable Robotics, which develops autonomous aircraft systems, announced a collaboration to explore the use of automated aircraft. The companies said they will select a suitable aircraft for Reliable’s Remotely Operated Aircraft System with initial focus on large twin engine turboprop freighters. ASL and Reliable said they will jointly assess the demand for remotely operated aircraft in Europe. Both companies are part of the ASL CargoVision Forum, which brings together those engaged in the development of sustainable aviation technologies.

“ASL and Reliable see urgent market demand for automated systems that will enhance safety, increase utilization of aircraft assets and support sustainability goals,” said Myles Goeller, chief business officer of Reliable Robotics. “ASL and Reliable see urgent market demand for automated systems that will enhance safety, increase utilization of aircraft assets and support sustainability goals. ASL shares our commitment to investing in pioneering technology development to serve industry needs and improve how goods and people are transported.”

 “This collaboration between ASL and Reliable is anchored on a common purpose to fully evaluate how remote and single pilot technologies can be developed and used to deliver safe, reliable and cost-effective cargo and passenger services,” said Hugh Flynn, ASL aviation holdings director. “At ASL we are looking at how new technologies will change and improve aviation, and how we can be at the forefront of that change to offer enhanced services to our customers.”

In addition to remotely piloted air cargo services, the companies will evaluate aircraft suitable for remotely piloted humanitarian operations. ASL Aviation Holdings is headquartered in Dublin and is a global aviation services company with airlines in Europe, South Africa and Asia. Reliable Robotics launched in 2017 to bring certified autonomous vehicles to commercial aviation is headquartered in Mountain View, Calif.
