About the NUAIR Alliance

Ray Sense and Avoid TecnologyThe NUAIR Alliance is a New York based not-for-profit coalition of more than 200 private and public entities and academic institutions working together to operate and oversee Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) test ranges in New York, Massachusetts and Michigan. Headquartered at Griffiss International Airport, in Rome, New York, NUAIR manages one of just seven FAA-designated UAS test sites in the United States leading research and deployment technologies that establish the case for safe UAS operations in the National Airspace System (NAS).

NUAIR is installing a Ground Based Sense and Avoid system at Griffiss International Airport to deploy state-of-the- art range instrumentation that can track UAS in the air and provide first of its kind testing capability in the country. This technology supports the development of the test site’s FAA mission of supporting development of a Sense and Avoid (SAA) system. NUAIR’s hangar and adjacent ramp access facilities at Griffiss International Airport are also newly renovated to support UAS Test Site activity.
