The world’s first airspace system built on AI and blockchain

Our story

By 2018, advancements in drones, air taxis, and other unmanned aircraft were underway. But the industry lacked a comprehensive system to safely integrate unmanned flights in shared airspace and execute autonomous operations at scale.

Boeing, an aviation pioneer, and SparkCognition, an AI innovator, joined forces to fill this gap with SkyGrid. Together, we’re enabling a smarter airspace management system to fill gaps unaccounted for in traditional UTM solutions.
