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

January 10, 2014

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.
