Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS)
Segregated airspace for RPAS off the coast of West Wales was the first of its kind in the world to be established, spanning over 1,500km² of land, and a further 7,100km² over sea – enabling full-scale testing, training, flight trials and demonstrations.
The centre of excellence for test and evaluation of RPAS includes hangars and laboratories at:
- Parc Aberporth – the first purposebuilt RPAS technology park in Europe and home to Watchkeeper – Europe’s largest RPAS programme operated by the UK MOD.
- Llanbedr Airfield – an ex-military site with three runways, is a controlled environment enabling safe operations of medium and high-altitude long duration RPAS.
