  4. 4. • California will gain more than any other State from UAS * • ~80% of U.S. applications for UAS are in Precision Agriculture * • $90B industry in next decade * • UAS expected to create 100,000 jobs * • UAS technology mature • UAS will potentially save $Millions UAS Commercial Applications … Why would California care? * Source: Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International Economic Impact Study - March 2013
  5. 5. • Agriculture – geo-surveying, crop spraying, livestock monitoring, wildlife inventory, soil erosion, frost mitigation, determining plant health, crop harvesting • Utility Companies – downed power lines, water lines, geophysical surveys to predict mineral deposits • First Responders - Search & Rescue, Firefighting, wildfire mapping • Coastline Tracking - locating oil spills, coastal erosion, migratory studies, • Construction - facility inspection, maintenance and safety purposes • Aerial surveillance – pipeline security, home security, road patrol, etc. • Weather studies - Hurricane hunters (collect barometric pressure, temperature, etc real-time) • Reconnaissance - support in natural disasters • Aerial photography and marketing • Transportation – FedEx and UPS UAS Applications
  6. 6. • So, why??? – FAA process for UAS commercial (non-DoD) use is: • Cumbersome • Time-consuming • Restrictive • Currently … – 327 active permits in U.S. • most for law enforcement or universities Why aren’t we using UAS in the United States?
  7. 7. FAA directed to: 1. Establish 6 R&D test sites in the U.S. 2. Develop a plan to accelerate the safe integration of UAS into the national airspace system Cal UAS Inyokern is competing with 24 other Applicants across U.S. FAA decision by year-end Site visit anticipated soon Cal UAS Portal - Background – FAA Bill FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 – dtd 14 Feb 12

  16. 16. In an effort to harness and enhance California’s innovative spirit, the state of California launched its forward-thinking Innovation Hub (iHub) initiative. The iHub initiative improves the state's national and global competitiveness by stimulating partnerships, economic development, and job creation around specific research clusters through state-designated iHubs. The iHubs leverage assets such as research parks, technology incubators, universities, and federal laboratories to provide an innovation platform for startup companies, economic development organizations, business groups, and venture capitalists. Existing California Innovation Hubs
  17. 17. • Defense Technology • Advanced Aerospace • Unmanned Systems • Autonomous Systems • Space Systems • Operational Energy • Test & Evaluation • Interoperability The proposed California Defense, Energy and Aerospace i-Hub seeks to team California entrepreneurs and high-growth business with Federal laboratory RDTE resources for rapid innovation in response to critical national objectives.
