Testing…Testing… FAA Selects Six Test Sites For Unmanned Aircraft Systems Research

January 10, 2014

On December 30, the FAA announced its selection of six public entities that will develop unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) research test sites around the country to define the operational and certification requirements necessary to further integrate UAS into the national airspace. The test sites will focus on the FAA's research goals in critical areas and are a key part of the UAS Roadmap, issued in November, to support the expanded use of civilian UAS by industries such as agriculture, law enforcement, and oil and gas exploration.
