RIAC Header

Project Manager Unmanned Aircraft Systems established the Rapid Integration Acceptance Center to provide a single location where all Unmanned and Manned aircraft can complete end-to-end testing and integration. Dugway Proving Ground has 1,299 square miles, surface to 58,000 feet MSL, of Army restricted airspace with low spectrum interference. This together with the collocated Utah Test and Training Range, comprises a total of 7,954 total square miles of restricted airspace. This setting offers the perfect environment for RIAC to execute their mission; training Government Owned Contractor Operated units, acceptance testing for Army UAS, non-program of record developmental test, quick reaction fielding, cross platform interoperability demonstrations, and Ground Based Sense And Avoid (GBSAA) test bed development. RIAC services are provided to ensure the safety, performance, and reliability of PM UAS hardware and embedded software. Our facilities and test process are designed for rapid reconfiguration and maximum test scheduling flexibility to support a wide variety of testing with minimum cost to the customer.
