Research & Development
Tulsa is paving the way in advanced mobility innovations.
From OSU's industry-leading expertise in autonomous systems research to the testing capabilities of Skyway Range, Tulsa is developing and testing tomorrow's industry solutions, today.
Leveraging the in-state excellence of Oklahoma State University, an advantageous testing environment, effective intergovernmental partnerships, and flexible airspace, Tulsa has the ingredients to spur innovation in unmanned aerial systems.
At Skyway Range companies can iterate and test unmanned aerial vehicles with this nationally-unique flight test corridor providing an expected 114 nautical miles of urban/rural testing conditions and unmatched proximity to Tulsa's city center. This unique flexibility gives companies the ability to demonstrate safety, security, and performance in a variety of conditions - enabling adaptation to new regulations and use cases.
A leading institution in unmanned research, OSU’s Oklahoma Aerospace Institute for Research and Education (OAIRE) is at the center of Oklahoma’s aerospace mandate to answer industry and federal demand for innovation, excellence, and expertise in the unmanned aerial field. As a designated Counter-UAS Center of Excellence, OAIRE provides the subject matter expertise, engineering services and prototyping developments that are paving the way for UAS research throughout the country.
