FAA Selects Unmanned Aircraft Systems Research and Test Sites

The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) today announced the selection of the six public entities that will develop unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) research and test sites around the country. These congressionally-mandated test sites will conduct critical research into the certification and operational requirements necessary to safely integrate UAS into the national airspace over the next several years.

To meet border surveillance challenges STREAMS integrates a range of different activities covering a wide spectrum going from platforms and sensors to create a local tactical picture at a specific location to the sharing, fusion, and exploitation of that local picture at regional, national, and EU level. Demonstration projects would be needed to test different system configurations, establish acceptable levels of safety and develop the technology needed to achieve the required control and safety levels.
