Twenty-one of the world's leading research universities and a hundred leading industry, government partners comprise the Alliance for System Safety of UAS through Research Excellence, or ASSURE.

ASSURE possesses the expertise, infrastructure and outstanding track record of success that the FAA Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aircraft Systems demands.

This alliance features expertise across a broad spectrum of research areas including: Air traffic control interoperability, UAS airport ground operations, control and communications, detect and avoid, human factors, UAS noise reduction, UAS wake signatures, unmanned aircraft pilot training and certification, low altitude operations safety, spectrum management and UAS traffic management.


Our mission is to provide the Federal Aviation Administration the research they need to quickly, safely and efficiently integrate unmanned aerial systems into our National Airspace System with minimal changes to our current system.


Our vision is to help the Unmanned Aerial System market grow into its multi-billion dollar market potential by conducting research that quickly, safely and effectively get UAS flying alongside manned aircraft around the world.
