Maryland is the home of a burgeoning ecosystem of research, prototype development, testing, and manufacturing of automated vehicles and their underlying systems. With the highest concentration of aerospace engineers in the country, neighbor to the nation’s capital and several decades of experience in the development of automated systems; Maryland is at the forefront of automated vehicle policy, commercialization, and integration. Maryland provides an environment for automated vehicles operating in any domain to thrive, with 2 sites for UAS R&D, more than 3,000 miles of coastline and close coordination among partnering State agencies, to enable emerging technologies to assimilate into our roadways. Contact Colter Menke to be a part of the Maryland Pavilion.
UAS Central, the Central New York and the Mohawk Valley regions of New York State, are the hub for unmanned aerial systems (UAS) in the United States. The robust and collaborative UAS Central ecosystem is comprised of businesses, academia and government agencies whose sole purpose is to advance the UAS industry in New York State. UAS Central includes a first-of-its kind 50-mile UTM corridor for the testing, research, development, and advancement of unmanned systems. The 50-mile UTM corridor and the New York UAS Test Site, one of only seven FAA-designated UAS Test Sites in the country, are a part of the capabilities that make this region a global leader for the UAS industry. New York State provides incentives to companies relocating to Upstate New York, the leading UAS destination in the U.S. Contact Shannon Fults to be a part of the New York Pavilion.
North Carolina posted more firsts and flew more advanced air mobility missions than all other teams combined in the FAA’s UAS Integration Pilot Program. Imagine what we’ll do with BEYOND. Our partner companies are commercially delivering medical packages, vaccines, PPE, food and supplies. What AAM solution would you like to pursue? Come to North Carolina and help us push the limits of aviation’s next frontier. Contact Amanda Conner to be part of the North Carolina Pavilion.
Organized by JobsOhio and the Dayton Development Coalition, the Ohio pavilion is a snapshot of one of the most comprehensive unmanned and autonomous systems ecosystems in the United States. Ohio is the birthplace of aviation, continuing today as a place for leading-edge research, innovation and collaborative development. Ohio is helping the industry take their innovations to new heights.But autonomous transportation systems are not just airborne in Ohio. As an automotive powerhouse, Ohio continues to drive autonomous and connected vehicle advancements with institutions like the Transportation Research Center’s SMART Center, Connected Marysville, and DriveOhio’s smart projects for open road testing. The state acts as a living lab for autonomous mobility, ensuring that no matter what stage of development you are in, Ohio has the resources to help. Please contact Victoria Boczkowski to be a part of the Ohio Pavilion.
Oklahoma is perfectly positioned for the fast-emerging unmanned industry, with its central location, ideal terrain and climate, business incentives, testing capabilities, training and education programs, and research and development. The state’s three research universities — Oklahoma State University (OSU), the University of Tulsa (TU) and the University of Oklahoma (OU) — are setting themselves apart nationally through degree programs, facilities, research and grants, with emphasis on environmental sensing, defense and weather prediction. Part of a regional cluster initiative, Oklahoma’s UAS companies gain access to collaboration, national technology, global capital and international markets. Contact Leshia Pearson to be a part of the Oklahoma Pavilion.
The Oregon Pavilion is hosted by the Oregon Department of Aviation whose mission is to provide infrastructure, financial resources, and expertise to ensure a safe and efficient air transportation system. We vision an integrated Aviation System benefiting all Oregonians. The Oregon Pavilion features many local UAS industry businesses and partners that showcase their unique offerings in ideal northwest locations perfectly positioned for the vast needs of the UAS industry. Our exhibitors features many critical UAS partners that boast unique testing capabilities, leading educational programs and collaborative business environments.
