About the consortium

Focused on providing a common framework that enables unity and synergy of action while serving as a leading government wide provider and center of excellence for critical thought, technology and solutions development; now and in the future.

Kansas brings a rich history of global leadership in the aviation industry. Supporting industry, government and academia we are committed to maintaining US national technical leadership by building on the Wichita “aviation cluster” through engaged involvement in unmanned systems with industry, academia, and government wide activities. The Kansas “unmanned systems cluster” includes an expanding foundation ranging from Overland Park, Olathe, Lawrence, Manhattan, Fort Riley, Herington, Salina, Augusta and Wichita. The cluster is experiencing constant growth and provides a unique opportunity for industry to benefit from Kansas wide capabilities and expertise for:
