Urban Air Mobility (UAM) is increasingly becoming popular for Passenger or Cargo movement in dense smart cities. Several researches so far are focused on individual vehicle architectures such as multirotor or tiltrotor etc., but not much effort in a System of systems point of view where a homogenous fleet of vehicle with different passenger capacity, speed, and propulsive energy concepts are assessed in a framework for a successful UAM operations in a given city. An effort is made in this paper wherein, vehicle architecture is derived from the Concept of Operations (CONOPS) of scenarios such as urban and suburban operations and as well as propulsion subsystem for sustainable UAM. This paper approaches UAM aircraft design driven by System of Systems (SoS) approach and an agent-based simulation supports the vehicle architecture evaluation and fleet definition. The outcome of this study are: multiple aircraft design with subsystem architectures, ideal fleet size for the respective operational scenarios, autonomy and battery technology effectiveness on UAM throughput (to efficiently provide UAM on-demand service maximum passengers within 15 min wait time), and importantly, sustainability metrics such as total fleet energy required. Several System of Systems, system and subsystem level sensitivity research questions are addressed to understand the interlevel coupling
