FAA Approves Draganflyer X4-ES for Use at First UAS Test Site in North Dakota.

Draganflyer X4-ES

Today, the Federal Aviation Administration announced that the first UAS test site in North Dakota is operational and has been certified to use the Draganflyer X4-ES for its testing. This is a major step forward in the process to integrate UAV’s into US airspace.

In December, the FAA announced six test sites chosen to perform Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) research. The location in North Dakota is the first to begin operations and did so more than two-and-a -half months ahead of the scheduled deadline set by Congress.

The remaining five UAS test sites are scheduled to become operational as the year goes on. The sites are located in various areas throughout the US, which ensures that testing will take place in different climates and environments.

The primary function of the North Dakota site will be to show that UAS’ can check soil quality and the status of crops in partnership with North Dakota State University/Extension Service precision agriculture research studies. The NDSU/UND partnership announced earlier this month that they will be utilizing the Draganflyer X4-ES with Tetracam ADC Micro Multispectral Camera for their Agricultural Research Program.
