North Dakota is home to a growing field of unmanned aerial systems (UAS) research, business and military interests. 

Within its borders, North Dakota already has all the components needed to support UAS education, training, research and commercialization. Partnerships among private businesses, universities and state government solidify North Dakota's position as a leader in the UAS industry.
