The technology and procedures developed during a nearly decade-long program have been assisting the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to develop the rules for certification of unmanned aircraft to safely coexist with other air traffic. The goal is to enable new commercial and public service opportunities, such as real-time surveillance of fires, infrastructure inspections for pipelines, and medical transportation in the future.

NASA began its Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Integration in the National Airspace System (NAS) Project in 2011. Work since then has included multiple simulation efforts and six specific flight test series that focused on validating these simulations and supporting the development of minimum operational performance standards (MOPS) for Detect and Avoid (DAA) systems.

Since 1977, NASC has provided innovative solutions to the Department of Defense, federal research institutions, and commercial industry in their quest for technologically advanced solutions to global challenges. Our specialized products, support, and services are currently being used in multiple operational environments around the world. NASC areas of expertise include Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Manufacturing and Flight Services, UAS Ground Control Systems, Advanced Maritime Patrol ASW Training, Advanced Acoustics, and Sensor Development, Persistent Surveillance Systems, Combat Systems Joint Fires Training and Doctrine, and Information Technology.
