Because it is UNCORRECTED material, please consider the following text as a useful but insufficient proxy for the authoritative book pages.

A-1 Chapter 1 Chapter 5 Chapter 3 Chapter 7 Chapter 9 Chapter 2 Chapter 6 Chapter 4 Chapter 8 A ppendices A P P E N D I X A A-1 FAA Test Site Descriptions and Contacts A brief description of the six test site operators and the research they plan to conduct into future UAS use are here: • University of Alaska The University of Alaska proposal contained a diverse set of test site range locations in seven climatic zones as well as geographic diversity with test site range loca- tions in Hawaii and Oregon. The research plan includes the development of a set of standards for unmanned aircraft categories, state monitoring, and navigation. Alaska also plans to work on safety standards for UAS operations. • State of Nevada Nevada’s project objectives concentrate on UAS standards and operations as well as operator standards and certification requirements. The applicant’s research will also include a concentrated look at how ATC procedures will evolve with the introduction of UAS into the civil environment and how these aircraft will be integrated with NextGen. Nevada’s selection contributes to geographic and climatic diversity. • Griffiss International Airport (NY) Griffiss International plans to work on developing test and evaluation as well as verification and validation processes under FAA safety oversight. The applicant also plans to focus its research on sense and avoid capabilities for UAS and its sites will aid in researching the complexities of integrating UAS into the congested, northeast airspace. • North Dakota Department of Commerce North Dakota plans to develop UAS airworthiness essential data and validate high reliability link technology. This applicant will also conduct human factors research. North Dakota’s application was the only one to offer a test range in the temperate (continental) climate zone and included a variety of different airspace that will benefit multiple users. • Texas A&M University—Corpus Christi Texas A&M plans to develop system safety require- ments for UAS vehicles and operations with a goal of protocols and procedures for airworthi- ness testing. The selection of Texas A&M contributes to geographic and climactic diversity. • Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) Virginia Tech plans to con- duct UAS failure mode testing and identify and evaluate operational and technical risks areas. This proposal includes test site range locations in both Virginia and New Jersey. Table A-1 provides contact information. UAS References for Airports
