Nevada maintains #2 ranking in UAS for 2nd year in a row

Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS) has announced that according to Business Facilities´ 15th Annual Rankings: State Rankings Report (July/August 2019 Issue), the State of Nevada has maintained its #2 ranked Drone Industry position for a second consecutive year, the company said.

Nevada outranks other states that have invested tens of millions of dollars in growing their drone industries. This national recognition and endorsement validate the approach Nevada has taken to grow its new Drone Industry.

Nevada´s industry ranking is supported by the State of Nevada standing out with the top three drone operations in the country for 2019 including the NASA UAS Traffic Management (UTM) Technical Capability Level (TCL) 4, FAA UTM Pilot Program, and the DOT UAS Integration Pilot Program (IPP), reflecting the aggressive path Nevada has traveled to attain one of two top industry ranked positions.

As Nevada´s designated agency to manage the FAA Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Test Site, the Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS) positions Nevada as the global leader in Autonomous Systems (AS) deployment. NIAS is the synergist, clearinghouse, and learning accelerator establishing the premier smart ecosystem for Autonomous Systems which grows the AS Industry while safely integrating AS into the daily lives of the public.
