  1. 1.  UAS COE origins  ASSURE team members  Economic significance  Recent initial ASSURE research FAA meeting ◦ FAA requested research pre-proposals  ASSURE next steps
  2. 2.  Concept created as a result of the FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 ◦ Research, education, and training in areas critical to safe and successful integration of UAS into the nation's airspace  Kansas State led the initial development of what would become the ASSURE team ◦ An initial meeting at KSU Salinas in June 2012 ◦ Mississippi State assumes leadership ◦ Multiple team meetings and proposal writing sessions before RFP appears in Sep. 2014
  3. 3.  Mississippi State University  Drexel University  Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University  Kansas State University  Montana State University  New Mexico State University  North Carolina State University  Oregon State University  University of Alabama-Huntsville  University of Alaska-Fairbanks  University of California Davis  University of Kansas  University of North Dakota  The Ohio State University  Wichita State University
  4. 4.  Associate university members ◦ Auburn University ◦ Concordia ◦ Indiana State University ◦ Louisiana Tech University ◦ Tuskegee University ◦ University of Southampton  Over 100 industry and government partners ◦ NOAA, NASA, USGS ◦ Amazon Prime Air, Ratheon, Disney, VDOS
  5. 5.  Five year initial period ◦ Year 1: $5 million ◦ Year 2: $5 million initial appropriation ◦ Future years unknown but > $5 million expected ◦ 100% match is required for research  Four required meetings for full members in year 1, two for subsequent years ◦ Bi-weekly telecom for all university teams ◦ Focus research areas will have additional meetings and contacts
  6. 6.  Expecting additional funding from industry and agencies during COE lifetime  Project Ghana  Industry sponsored ASSURE centers ◦ Precision agriculture ◦ Wildfire ◦ Oil / gas infrastructure surveys and support
  7. 7.  FAA, NOAA, and NASA representatives  Seven research pre-proposals requested by FAA ◦ Validate sUAS ASTM standards ◦ Develop detect and avoid (DAA) to enable sUAS beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) operations under specific operational limitations ◦ Air to air collision ◦ Air to ground collision ◦ UAS maintenance standards/certification ◦ Surveillance criticality for DAA ◦ Human factors  Contracts expected to be finalized on Sep. 1
  8. 8.  White papers due on July 29 (25 are planned)  Low altitude safety in wildfire response  Low altitude safety in beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights for precision agriculture  Develop standards for flight schools  sUAS night operations safety  UAS ops tasks, conditions, standards for ATC  Pilot interface and control stations  Situational awareness for airport ops  Automated scheduling for UAS at airports
