Members of our team have significant technical and operational expertise on the NAS and the FAA William J. Hughes Technical Center research environment. The NJ UASTS has a unique perspective and ability to fully support UAS integration into the NAS.

The New Jersey UAS Test Site (UASTS) is a collaboration between research universities and public and private entities formed to support advanced research on unmanned aircraft, algorithms, sensors, and ATC systems to facilitate routine access for UAS into the NAS.
