Small Aircraft Transportation System (SATS) [1][2] er et forskningssamarbejde mellem FAA, NASA, lokale lufthavne og andre luftfartsmyndigheder i USA. SATS er beregnet til automatisk at styre og guide mange større og mindre luftfartøjer. Dette inkluderer VTOL-fartøjer; [3] [4] flyvende biler som f.eks. Moller Skycar og LaBiche Flying Sports Car No. 1.

Maj 2007 blev det annonceret at computersystemet er tæt på at være færdigt. [5]

En væsentlig motivation for at fremskynde SATS var Terrorangrebet den 11. september 2001.
