DRONE STANDARDS VALIDATION

Validate your technology to industry standards

As standards for commercial drone operations are developed and implemented, companies will need to have their technology validated against those standards before conducting operations.

At NUAIR, we’re applying our team’s multifaceted research across the UAS spectrum to build NUSTAR (National UAS Standardized Testing And Rating) as the “gold standard” for verification of conformity with government and industry standards.
