May 15, 2019 - In December 2018, the Harris UAS, or HubNet, system was deployed near Hillsboro. The network, a project carried out in conjunction with UND, the Northern Plains UAS test site and Harris Corp., is a system of integrated ground infrastructure that allows commercial UAS to fly further and safer beyond visual line of sight in commercial airspaces. The December demonstration showed the network’s ability to provide UAS pilots with the airspace awareness to stay clear of manned aircraft and other objects.
