NMSU UAS Test Flight Center earns new FAA authorization

The Federal Aviation Administration has transitioned its Cooperative Research and Development Agreement, in place since 2007, with New Mexico State University?s Physical Science Laboratory, to an Other Transaction Agreement for the operation of the Unmanned Aircraft Systems Flight Test Center.

NMSU?s UAS FTC was established to provide a unique flight test capability for civil, commercial and public aircraft; payload and technology manufacturers; integrators; researchers; and regulators to flight-test unmanned aircraft systems, subsystems and tactics/procedures in 15,000 square miles of mixed-use airspace under a variety of conditions in central and southern New Mexico.

The airspace assigned to NMSU borders White Sands Missile Range, other Department of Defense airspace, as well as Space Port America?s location. The NMSU UAS FTC has served as a key provider of flight test data to support the FAA?s goal of safely integrating UAS into the National Airspace System.
