Our Mission

The UAS Center at SBD is located onsite at San Bernardino International Airport (SBD), currently the fastest growing airport for air cargo in the US.  SBD is one of the few airports in the US with FAA approval for drone operations.  Strategically and conveniently located in Southern California just an hour’s drive east of downtown Los Angeles, the UAS Center at SBD serves as a multifaceted hub for the advancement, commercialization and adoption of autonomous technology in the US and globally.


The Center’s clients include leading government agencies, drone manufacturers, software providers, and research institutions. We provide consulting on drone policy, standardization and integration as well as product evaluation.  We offer comprehensive drone pilot training and a site for test flights and product demonstrations.  We also partner with public and private sectors in support of regional workforce development initiatives.

Established in 2020 as an enterprise fund under the Inland Valley Development Agency.
