Wisk Aero acquires Verocel to improve software safety for its eVTOL

M&A

  • Wisk Aero, an eVTOL aircraft developer, acquired Verocel, a software verification and validation company that has worked with the aerospace industry for 25 years. Neither Wisk nor Verocel divulged any financial information about the purchase.

  • This acquisition's objective is for Wisk Aero to ensure the software security of its autonomous unmanned eVTOL, the Generation 6 aircraft, which would only be supervised by humans. Wisk Aero will integrate Verocel's team of 60 members into its operations. The members possess expertise in DO-178C, an FAA guidelines element standard for developing safety-critical software for airborne systems.

  • Analyst QuickTake: Wisk's acquisition resonates with Joby Aviation's acquisition of Avionyx in May 2022 . Joby acquired an aerospace software engineering firm, like Wisk Aero, to integrate and authenticate its software and speed up its aircraft's FAA certification.
