"Working on technologies that will support integration of unmanned aircraft systems into the national air space is a critical piece of the University of Maryland Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Test Site’s mission,” said Matt Scassero, director of the UMD UAS Test Site and associate director of the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP).

More information about NASA's UTM research platform is available online.
