Ohio has many relevant assets and extensive on-going research related to Unmanned Systems — it is already recognized internationally as a global leader in this emerging industry.
Industry leading engineering and manufacturing work in sensors, propulsion, flight and ground testing, communication technologies, computational modeling and wind tunnel testing assets give Ohio companies a huge competitive advantage in the Unmanned Systems market.
Ohio (lead by Dayton Development Coalition) will continue to further support state-wide aerospace research and development, unmanned aeronautical vehicle industry development, attraction of aerospace companies, simulation of aerospace supply chain and workforce training and education and retention and attraction of jobs at Ohio federal installations.
Academic support is also expanding in support of this industry with a Dayton region community college offering training for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.
