West Wales UAV Centre (WWUAVC) provides a dedicated UAS environment for testing, development, demonstration and training. With its extensive airspace over land and sea, supported by air traffic services, the WWUAVC is at the forefront of UK UAS operations and procedural development.
Based in Wales, with other UK site locations available, the WWUAVC offers a complete infrastructure for UAS operations, from first flight through to test and evaluation, training and operational programmes.
Also available are ground-based facilities such as environmental, electromagnetic compatibility, and communications testing.
Working with industry and regional government, QinetiQ is assessing future needs for UAS operations in the UK with a view to further developing the current capability.
