Counter-UAS Center of Excellence

Current requirements across the military services demonstrate a need for comprehensive counter UAS capabilities. Concurrently, the nation faces a shortage of engineering graduates with the skills, clearances, and education necessary in these specialized fields. Each military service is pursuing counter UAS research, development, test, and engineering activities that are independent of each other creating a need to coordinate efforts across industry, academia and government agencies. 


The Counter-UAS Center of Excellence fulfills this need in coordinating efforts to rapidly develop and test counter drone capabilities and the ability of the military services to attract a skilled, cleared and trained workforce to develop and test this technology. The Counter-UAS Center of Excellence enables better coordination of effort and more efficient use of resources across the services to develop, test and field counter drone technology.


The Counter-UAS Center of Excellence utilizes resources across the state of Oklahoma and work with industry and federal agencies to coordinate and evaluate technology to ensure the US retains the lead in UAS and Counter-UAS technology for the foreseeable future.
