Mission Statement

NMUASC is a not-for-profit and industry-driven organization that brings together industry leaders, educational and research institutions, government agencies and industry associations that contribute towards the development of unmanned aerial systems in Michigan and across the country.


Our mission is to foster a favourable environment while supporting the development of the unmanned vehicles supply chain and contributing to the accelerated growth of the industry for both the commercial and military sectors. NMUASC intends to become a continuously growing source of wealth for the state of Michigan, the Great Lakes Region and the United States.


Our vision is to become the prime UAS test center and cluster encompassing R&D, training & education, testing and manufacturing spectrum of activities.


To support these strategic orientations, four success pillars are at the core of the projects' mission:

  1. To develop an integrated UAS cluster, supported by a strong business model.
  2. To support the FAA and other governmental agencies with the integration of UAS into national airspace territory.
  3. To promote R&D partnerships with academia, develop an infrastructure and foster human capital development across our test-site locations.
  4. To establish an integrated supply chain, develop applications and manufacture unique platforms for the UAS industry.
