AUSTIN, Texas. Boeing and SparkCognition have announced that they will launch SkyGrid, a new company that aims to develop a software platform to ensure the safe, secure integration of autonomous cargo and passenger air vehicles in the global airspace.

The companies say that SkyGrid's platform will use blockchain technology, artificial intelligence (AI)-enabled dynamic traffic routing, data analytics, and cybersecurity features to perform unmanned aircraft system (UAS) traffic management (UTM).

The platform will enable SkyGrid customers to perform a broad range of missions and services using UAS, including package delivery, industrial inspections, and emergency assistance.
