Drone, UAV, UAS, RPV, RPA, Air Robot?

Early “Drones” were often surplus aircraft converted
to remote
-
control targets (Culver PQ
-
14)

UAVs were developed as targets and basic sensor
platforms (BQM
-
145A)

UAS are unmanned platforms that host varied sensors
and systems (Yamaha RMAX)


Call it a banana, if you like …. John McCain



FAA directed to:

1.
Establish 6 R&D test sites in the U.S.

2.
Develop a plan to accelerate the safe integration of UAS into the national
airspace system



When determining the location of the UAS test sites, the FAA Administrator
shall:


consider geographic and climatic diversity;


consult with the DOD and NASA;


consider the location of ground infrastructure and research needs

FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012


dtd 14 Feb 12


FAA grants blanket Certificate of Authorization
(COA)


Gather
data

needed to define operating rules for UAS operations in the NAS



Develop the

Industry Team Members



California will gain more than any other State from UAS *



~80% of U.S. applications are in Precision Agriculture
*



$90B industry in next decade *


UAS expected to create 100,000 jobs *


UAS technology mature


UAS will potentially save $Millions


Working with Assembly and Senate

UAS Commercial Applications …

Why would California care?

UAS Applications

In an effort to harness and enhance California’s innovative
spirit, the state of California launched its forward
-
thinking
Innovation Hub (
iHub
) initiative. The
iHub

initiative improves
the state's national and global competitiveness by stimulating
partnerships, economic development, and job creation around
specific research clusters through state
-
designated
iHubs
. The
iHubs

leverage assets such as research parks, technology
incubators, universities, and federal laboratories to provide an
innovation platform for startup companies, economic
development organizations, business groups, and venture
capitalists.

Existing California Innovation Hubs

The
proposed California Defense, Energy and Aerospace i
-
Hub seeks to team
California entrepreneurs and high
-
growth business with Federal laboratory
RDTE resources for rapid innovation in response to critical national objectives
.
