This proximity will allow GUS to take full advantage of the newly announced FAA UTM ConOps x2.0 in the near future.
The new building includes a Systems Integration Lab (SIL), equipped to host local research partners such as the University of Texas at Arlington and the University of North Texas.
Additional workspaces are available for collaboration with visiting commercial partners Specter Edge, Unmanned Experts, and more. Learn about current research awards and future AFWERX National Football League STRATFI contract opportunities.
