Become a JPods Supplier

As JPods are build, a Kitty Hawk Network will be provided to each Master Mobility Company (MMCs) and regional Local Mobility Company (LMCs). Kitty Hawk Networks (KHN) establish "cookie cutter" standard for localization of manufacturing. 

From the KHW standard, drawings and support will be provided for localization. Rigorous standards will be enforced and we will develop as much local content and jobs as is practical. JPods, MMCs, and LMCs will collaborate with local manufacturers and educational institutions.
