Autonomous Aircraft Flight Management Computers Market Trends


Growing adoption of artificial intelligence (AI) is driving the market growth


Market CAGR for autonomous aircraft flight management computers is being driven by the rising adoption of artificial intelligence (AI). In hazardous environments or situations where people are unable to operate, autonomous aircraft lessen the hazards of human mistakes. The US Air Force revealed that it had set the goal of conducting a face-off between an autonomous drone armed with an artificial intelligence-driven flight management and control system and a fighter jet with a human pilot.


Additionally, the fully autonomous unmanned combat air vehicle (UCAV) is capable of air-to-air combat as well as air-to-ground strikes. It would be able to perform many of the same tasks as manned aircraft. Still, it would be able to make critical decisions quicker and more accurately, taking into account a great deal more information in a shorter period without any concern about human error. Moreover, they can be networked into swarms that cooperate to maximize their fighting effectiveness at any given time, greatly exceeding that of formation-controlled management computers, which this increase in the use of artificial intelligence in autonomous systems will drive.


The demand for efficient transport choices has increased as a result of the increase in travelers. As a result, nations are concentrating on building the infrastructure for autonomous aircraft. It is anticipated that increasing government investments in independent aircraft infrastructure would raise demand for the technology and accelerate industry growth. An important channel of communication between passengers and transportation providers is passengers’ information systems.


Along with system dependability, general look, and safety, it can also give up-to-date, accurate arrival and departure information, which is crucial to passenger happiness. Passenger information systems, which are predicted to drive the market’s growth rate, include route information and scheduling, real-time train tracking, travel planning, internet connectivity solutions and passenger infotainment.


For instance, advanced control systems and asset management provide information about current conditions that may be used to assess the state of engines and check on the performance of wagons and aircraft equipment. Proactive scheduling also helps to boost productivity and cut down on time. As a result, it is anticipated that throughout the projection period, demand for autonomous aircraft flight management computers will increase due to the rising adoption of artificial intelligence (AI). Thus driving the Autonomous Aircraft Flight Management Computers market revenue.

A California startup named Natilus is creating UAVs to transport flying goods. Through innovation and cutting-edge technology, Natilus is revolutionizing the 75-year-old status quo of freight transportation in order to make air freight rates competitive with cargo shipping and significantly shorten delivery times. A blended-wing, autonomous air freight system that Natilus has planned and built can provide services at a tenth of the cost of current transportation while minimizing harmful effects on the environment. Natilus products are a turnkey solution since Natilus aircraft utilize the existing ground infrastructure and common air cargo containers.  In January 2023, Natilus released that Ameriflight, a leader in cargo operations, is the first US regional airline to sign a purchase agreement with Natilus. Ameriflight’s contract for 20 Natilus Kona feeders, valued at USD 134 million, brings the total commitment to deliver 460 aircraft to USD 6.8 billion.


Reliable Robotics are building technology that will improve aircraft safety and help save lives. Continuous autopilot engagement is possible with its FAA-certified technology during all flight phases, including auto-taxi, auto-takeoff, and auto-landing. The movement of commodities and people will also undergo a dramatic transformation thanks to air service cuts or abolishment since 2019. Reliable Robotics began with a certification-forward strategy and first demonstrated the fully automated operation of regional cargo aircraft from the departure gate to the arrival gate.  In June 2023, The FAA formally approved the Reliable certification proposal. Continuous autopilot engagement is made possible by the autonomous flight system during all aspects of aircraft operation, including taxi, takeoff, and landing. This significant accomplishment represents an unmatched step forward in the certification of fully automated aircraft.
