This pivotal opportunity will allow NABLA Mobility to accelerate its pioneering efforts in transforming the aviation sector toward a more sustainable future.

This initiative not only focuses on fostering innovation but also on seamlessly integrating research outcomes into society through cross-ministerial collaboration. The project will be executed through two approaches: an 'End-to-End' method where all phases, including the initial research and development (POC, FS) as Phase 1, and practical development support as Phase 2, are conducted within the company; or a 'Linked' method, connecting to designated grant programs and initiatives conducted by relevant government ministries and agencies.


 NABLA Mobility has been selected for the End-to-End method SBIR Program’s Phase 1 and will receive a variety of support during the upcoming one-year project period. In addition, by passing the stage gate screening at the end of Phase 1, the company will be eligible to receive additional business support for approximately two years (Phase 2).


 Phase one of the program is set to commence in the third quarter of 2023, extending through the fourth quarter of the following year. During this period, NABLA Mobility will tirelessly work towards materializing their operational optimization platform, leveraging cutting-edge technology and a profound understanding of the aviation landscape.
