OADII Team Visits Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Aviation Technology Test Range

OADII Team Visits Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma Aviation Technology Test Range

The OADII leadership team visited the more than 44,500-acre Choctaw Nation Emerging Aviation Technology Test Range this week, examining their ground-based radar system. Located seven miles away from their advanced range operations center, the system provides aerial surveillance, safety monitoring, and testing performance of several UAV platforms/drones and various other next-generation aviation technologies. Thank you to James Grimsley, the Executive Director for Advanced Technology Initiatives, and the Choctaw Nation Emerging Aviation Technology Test Range team for an enlightening day learning of the vast capabilities of this bold, innovative, and emerging technology center.
