NASA has chosen locations in Nevada and Texas to assess the safe use of drones in crowded urban environments.
On February 19th, NASA’s Unmanned Aircraft Systems Traffic Management (UTM) project announced where it will test the fourth and final stage of their project on controlling drone traffic. The first location is Las Vegas’ Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems, a government-funded non-profit which promotes the growth of Nevada’s unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) industry. The second is the Lone Star UAS Center for Excellence and Innovation in Corpus Christi, Tex., one of seven Federal Aviation Administration test sites.
