National ARTP will be located on the campus of the Federal Aviation Administration William J. Hughes Technical Center which houses every system in use today in U.S. commercial aviation and is involved in system development and testing of NextGen systems, airport and aircraft safety research, and Homeland Security research.

Location on the Technical Center campus presents a tremendous opportunity for tenants of the Research Park to partner with the FAA and leverage the incredible facilities and expertise that reside there.  The Technical Center is the leading air transportation federal facility and the site of innovative, state-of-the-art research, development, testing, evaluation, modeling, and simulation.  The Technical Center has recognized expertise in automation, communications, navigation, and airport and aircraft safety and has served as the cornerstone for aviation advancements for over fifty years.

The center is the key facility for the development of the NextGen including the integration of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS).  The Technical Center is responsible for integrating all new systems, concepts and technologies into the NAS and will use National ARTP to build new partnerships between academia, industry and the FAA to foster collaborative R&D.

Tenants of the Research Park will also have the opportunity to interface and partner with the other aviation tenants that reside on the campus.
