Urban Air Mobility

Hanwha Systems offers the next generation transportation system that will change our future lifestyle

As a global total solution provider for urban air mobility, Hanwha Systems intends to provide the most safe and convenient mobility services. UAM(Urban Air Mobility) is a 3-dimentional urban air transportation system that connects ground and air transports. UAM, the next generation urban transport system, will be able to take passengers or cargos from the city center by air transport means. Thanks to the progress in battery and motor technologies as well as the advent of cutting-edge technologies such as collision avoidance, autopilot, etc., PAV(Personal Aerial Vehicle) is expected to bring a profound change to our way of life. By combing its advanced avionics technologies with ITC capabilities, Hanwha Systems is determined to lead the future mobility market.

Global UAM Solution Provider

With a safe airframe and convenient infrastructure, we will provide the most optimum, integrated UAV services.
Not only for the development of future mobility airframes, but also for services and transport infrastructures, Hanwha Systems is trying to explore business opportunities from all directions to provide total solutions for the future mobility. Our vision is to become a global UAM solution provider to address all the areas of UAM business.

The Most Safe and Efficient Airframe
Butterfly combines Hanwha Systems’ sensor, radar and avionics technologies with Overair’s patented “energy saving flying technology.”
Butterfly is an e-VTOL(Electrical Vertical Take-Off and Landing) air transport vehicle with 4 big rotors and individual blade control,
offering high performing, efficient, stable and low noise functions.
  • High Performance &
    High Efficiency
    Vectored Thrust enables vertical take-off
    and landing and ensures high performing,
    efficient operation during the flight.
  • Highly Stable
    4 same type of rotors are installed on front
    and rear wings. Take-off or landing can be
    made even when one of the rotors is out of
  • Low Noise
    Noise level is 15dB lower than helicopter’s as Butterfly is using optimum control technology for rotor rotation count and each rotor’s tilt, a patented manufacturing technology(OSTR).
  • Vectored Thrust: A technology that allows for rotor to change the angle vertically or horizontally, to support efficient flying maneuver. Considered as one of the most complex technologies.
  • OSTR(Optimum Speed Tilt Rotor) : Technology to control rotor rotation counts and angles to obtain the optimum airframe function.

· Key Technology

Tilt Rotor Technology Enabling Low Noise, High Efficiency, Optimum Speed Operation
Unlike the existing helicopters, 4 large rotors are installed on front and rear wings, making it possible to change angles from vertical direction for take-off and to horizontal one while flying. In other words, Butterfly can operate for longer hours with less energy, achieving high energy efficiency and maintaining fast speed.

· Advantages

  • Quiet
    • Noise level lower than helicopters by 16dB
  • Fast
    • Maximum speed of 320km (Less than 20 minutes from Seoul to Incheon
    • Supports continuous flying after having 10 minutes or less of high speed charging
  • Cost effective
    • Electrical motor is used to save
      airframe production and MRO costs
  • Emission free
    • Powered by electricity 100%


Standard Infrastructure in alignment with the government plans

Hanwha Systems will build social infrastructures than can bring innovative changes to our daily transport.

Cooperation for Verti-Hub, an airport terminal
  • Collaborating with KAC(Korea Airport Corporation) to build the
    world’s largest Verti-Hub as a part of global business strategy
  • Participating in the project to build Verti-port, a downtown take-
    off & landing and airport terminal facility
  • Designing and developing business models for flight service,
    boarding services, air traffic control and navigation safety areas.


Integrated Future Mobility Services

Hanwha Systems will provide the total solutions for future mobility including downtown air traffic solutions, interface with the existing transportation system, take-off & landing site, flight services, etc.

Collaboration with UAM-Team Korea
(Government-led Initiative for UAM Business)
to lead UAM flight service business
  • To build and operate systems to support commercial flight
  • To build platforms to link with boarding reservation, check-in,
    and interfaces with the existing public transport systems
    (taxi, bus, railways, sea ports, etc.)
