October 7, 2021, Sierra County, NM- AeroVironment, Inc. (NASDAQ: AVAV) is expanding its footprint at Spaceport America bringing two new unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) projects to New Mexico for testing and training. Operations forJUMP 20 medium unmanned aircraft systems (MUAS) and tactical unmanned aircraft systems (TUAS) have begun out of the Spaceport’s Vertical Launch Area. AeroVironment first became a tenant of the spaceport with the HAPSMobile Sunglider project, which flew twice in 2020.

“We developed a great relationship with AeroVironment last year, which has now expanded with these two new UAS projects,” said Scott McLaughlin, Executive Director of the New Mexico Spaceport Authority. “We appreciate their confidence in us and what we offer with our employees, our facilities, restricted airspace, remote location, and great weather for flight. Spaceport America’s business continues to grow and bring value to New Mexico.”
