May 8, 2015

The University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH) is part of a team selected to conduct research as part of the new FAA Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) Center of Excellence.

The FAA announced today that the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE), of which UAH is a core member, will operate the new FAA Unmanned 
Aerial System (UAS) Center of Excellence.

Congress has charged the FAA with developing rules regulating commercial unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), and the new ASSURE center will play a key role in that process. The center of excellence will provide the agency and industry with research to maximize the potential of commercial unmanned systems with minimal changes to the current system regulating manned aircraft.
