UAS Facilities and Assets

The NPUASTS has the equipment and environment to make robust UAS operations a practical reality and offer access to facilities and assets to UAS operators to achieve their commercial and autonomy goals.


Our existing nationwide airspace approvals from the FAA have allowed us to streamline processes and procedures that allow for more routine operations, anywhere in the National Airspace System. We have also obtained customized approvals to fit the requested scope outside of wide-reaching approvals.

Facilities in North Dakota

Grand Forks Air Force Base/GrandSKY

Adjacent to the Grand Forks Air Force Base, GrandSKY is a UAS business park. This collaboration provides users of the business park access to infrastructure such as office space, hangars, Air Traffic Control tower services, and Air Force-quality runways.

Camp Grafton

A North Dakota National Guard base located in Devils Lake, Camp Grafton is 90 miles from our offices in Grand Forks. This location is divided into two ranges (North and South), offering semi-urban and remote/rural locations, respectively, to meet individual operation needs.

Research Universities

Our connection to the University of North Dakota (UND) and North Dakota State University (NDSU) means that we have extensive access to researchers, faculty, students, interns, and classroom facilities.

Assets within North Dakota

We offer access to advanced fixed-site facilities, mobile trailers and operations, hardware and aircraft that take advantage of our strong relationship with North Dakota's UAS ecosystem. Advanced-technology UAS allow a wide variety of abilities and mission capabilities.
