Lone Star UAS Center Moves to Full Operations
[Avionics Today June 20, 2014] The FAA has approved Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi's Lone Star Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Center (LSUASC) for full operations. LSUASC is the fourth of six federally mandated test sites to become operational.
“The UAS test sites will help us identify operational goals as well as safety issues we must consider when expanding the use of unmanned aircraft into our airspace,” said FAA Administrator Michael Huerta. “This industry is growing exponentially, and we are working hard to make sure it does so safely.”
