Unmanned Aircraft System

As a leader in the field of non-military uses of unmanned or remotely piloted aircraft, the USDA-ARS JER Flight Team has conducted unmanned aircraft flights on the Jornada and other remote locations across the western US, and has collected over 90,000 aerial images and other aerial data used in the processing of those images. The Jornada collaborates with New Mexico State University Physical Science Laboratory Unmanned Aircraft Systems Flight Test Center (NMSU PSL UAS FTC).
