Unmanned Aerial Systems

Unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are poised to be one of the fastest-growing industries in American history. According to AUVSI’s Economic Impact Report, which is currently the most comprehensive study ever performed on the UAS industry, within 10 years of UAS integration into the National Airspace System (NAS), the industry will represent an $82 billion segment of the U.S. economy and generate more than 100,000 new high-paying jobs.

New research projects that the global drone market will increase to $1.2 billion by 2020 with a compound annual growth rate of 11.4 percent for the 2015-2020 forecast period.

Loudoun is establishing itself as an early adopter in the UAS space, attracting companies that manufacture, operate, and support unmanned systems. We are tied to the Mid-Atlantic Aviation Partnership (MAAP), the coordinating agency for the Virginia UAS test sites.
