Snowdonia Aerospace Centre in Llanbedr
The gateway to a unique environment for UAS testing
The Wales Unmanned Aircraft Systems Environment (WUASE) supports sustained, safe operation of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) enabling all types of research, development, test and evaluation.
Based in Wales, with other UK site locations available, the WUASE is at the forefront of UK UAS operations and procedural development and offers a complete infrastructure for UAS operations; from first flight through to testing, training and operational programmes.
Working with industry, the Department of Transport and regional government, QinetiQ is assessing future needs for UAS operations in the UK with a view to further developing the current capability.
We support all classes of UAS for both civil and military applications, with an emphasis on beyond visual line-of-site (BVLOS) operations
We have access to 7,100 km2 of airspace over sea and 1,500 km2 over land – the largest amount of segregated airspace for UAS testing and training in the UK
Tracking instruments and tracking radar
We can help facilitate the testing and safe integration of UAS into controlled, non-segregated airspace
Wales provides a richness of geographical features including mountains, valleys, coast and open sea
The combination of this rich local environment and access to extensive test instrumentation allows the complete capability of a UAS to be proven across a wide range of operational conditions.
