Welcome to the Ohio/Indiana UAS Center
As a joint venture between the states of Ohio and Indiana, the UAS Center offers a mix of resources and a variety of test ranges to support research, development, testing and evaluation of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) technologies for businesses, government, and academia. Since the days when the Wright Brothers first pioneered flight, our region remains strong in aviation due to our relationships with places like Wright Patterson Air Force Base and NASA Glenn.  Combined with our technical expertise and range capabilities, the UASC offers diversity of resources and facilities to support the UAS community.​

Explore this site to learn how our expert staff and state-of-the-art facilities can assist your entry into the National Airspace System and the rapidly growing UAS industry.
