Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS)

On behalf of the Nevada Governor’s Office of Economic Development, NIAS helps to grow the Autonomous Systems Industry through business teaming, partnerships, research and development, and education awareness in order to bring in business and jobs to the State of Nevada. NIAS plans Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) flight and Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) ground missions, collects Big Data, develops airspace and ground control measures, and recommends lessons learned to the FAA, NASA, and DOT in order to facilitate full and safe UAS and UGV integration into the National Airspace (NAS) and across Nevada highway and road lines of operations.
