The University of Southampton has been selected as the sole UK partner to help operate the new National Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (COE UAS) in the United States.

The University is a member of the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence (ASSURE) team that has been chosen by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to run the Centre, which will help to maximize the potential of commercial unmanned systems and address both government and commercial UAS challenges.

The ASSURE group, led by Mississippi State University (MSU), is a coalition of the top 20 UAS universities from three countries and more than 100 government and industry partners, which will launch a new era of commercial unmanned aircraft research, development, and integration into US airspace.
