As part of efforts to help support the ongoing development and safe integration efforts of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System, the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma (CNO) has signed an agreement to host testing by Martin UAV of its V-BAT Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) vehicle. The CNO test site location in rural south eastern Oklahoma was selected by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) to conduct advanced UAS operations to test unmanned operations. In March 2021, the FAA’s Mike Monroney Aeronautical Center (MMAC) has signed a three-year Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) with the Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma.
According to the CNO press release, Martin UAV and its partners will work with the FAA and other federal agencies to enhance emerging aviation technologies and operations to help the United States retain a global leadership position in aviation technology.
“Martin UAV is excited to partner with the CNO to help support the ongoing development and safe integration efforts of unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) into the National Airspace System,” said Jonathan Jacobs, CNO Director of Flight Operations.
