UAS Reno

National Championship Air Races Small UAS Challenge

Nevada higher education institutions are leading the effort in UAS development, testing, and education. A SUAS competition held indoors during the National Championship Air Races, September 12-14 at Stead Field in Reno, NV would showcase the leadership of these institutions in the future of UAS development. This Challenge also is anticipated to promote innovative developments in multiple areas of UAS design (e.g., system, subsystem, and element development and configuration, verification and validation testing, application, and integrated system demonstration).
