UAS Test Ranges

We’re pleased to welcome unmanned system developers to Oregon.

UAS companies testing in Oregon will find three FAA approved test ranges spanning from the high seas to the high desert including mountain ranges, forested valleys, rich farmland, ocean beaches, rivers, lakes and more.

Oregon’s diverse testing conditions, low business costs, and a business-orientted and tech-friendly climate make it an ideal location for UAS testing.
