UAS Integration Pilot Program


An Alaska team of 21 partners led by the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) has been selected as a participant in the U.S. Department of Transportation's Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration Pilot Program (IPP). The program allows state, local and tribal governments to work with UAS operators and manufacturers to speed up the safe entry of unmanned vehicles into the nation's airspace.

This page will act as a repository for information and updates on the Alaska team’s efforts under the IPP.
