Kansas State Polytechnic’s Unmanned Aviation Systems (UAS) program is a national leader in the unmanned aviation field and provides many opportunities to engage with industry. The program is unique in that available airspace is not a hindrance to the program. In addition to the on campus UAS Flight Pavilion, Kansas State University has agreements with the Kansas National Guard and the U.S. Army for airspace to include the Smoky Hill aerial weapons range and restricted airspace at Ft Riley to conduct research and training flights (R-3601 and R-3602). Through a longstanding respected relationship with the FAA K-State has been granted over 10 different COAs.
