 The decarbonization of the aviation industry is a critical challenge as the global expansion of air transportation in the future. According to estimates by BCG[1], if the current trajectory continues, the aviation industry's carbon emissions could account for approximately 20% of the global total by 2050. However, the initiatives required for decarbonization are technologically and operationally demanding, presenting challenging areas to address. In particular, optimizing aviation operations is of utmost importance, as it can yield immediate results even with existing infrastructure. Nevertheless, it has been regarded as highly challenging due to the intricate interplay between various environmental factors such as turbulence and weather, and the complexities involved in transporting passengers, cargo, and aircraft on a global scale. As air traffic continues to grow, the complexity of operational activities is expected to escalate further, making the implementation of cutting-edge predictive technologies an urgent priority for airlines. Strengthening operational resilience is a pressing issue that lies ahead for the entire industry.

 Driven by our mission of “Conquering Complexity. Inspiring Mobility.,” we are actively championing decarbonization in the aviation industry by leveraging state-of-the-art technology to bolster airlines' operational resilience. As the core technological capability, we have created “Untangle,” a distinctive predictive algorithm built on machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) principles. Complementing this, we have launched the beta version of “Weave,” a software product designed to empower pilots in their decision-making processes during flights.

 Weave incorporates advanced features such as turbulence avoidance and altitude optimization, leveraging ML/AI-based predictions of uncertainties such as turbulence, traffic flow, and weather. By combining these core prediction models, Weave enables airlines to fly safer routes with better efficiency, reducing operational burden while ensuring a comfortable and safe route. Furthermore, Weave can be seamlessly integrated with existing operational software used by airlines through API integration. This flexibility allows airlines to tailor the implementation of Weave to their specific needs, combining it with various existing software solutions. Weave's innovative capabilities and our company's core technological expertise have received a strong reputation in the industry, as demonstrated by our partnerships with Peach Aviation and the University of Tokyo for Fixed-flight path angle descent procedure verification, as well as being the only Japanese company selected for Boeing's Aerospace Xelerated program.


 The funds will be utilized to accelerate the product development and feature expansion of Weave, as well as to strengthen the core algorithm set, Untangle. Additionally, a portion of the funding will be allocated toward global talent acquisition and the acceleration of business development.


 NABLA Mobility remains committed to leveraging our ML/AI-based predictive and optimization technologies, which are our strengths, to unravel the complexity of aviation operations. Through enhancing the operational resilience of airlines, we will continue to support the global aviation industry in its decarbonization efforts.
