Richmond Counter-UAS Testbed Fact Sheet


To establish organizational processes and identify which C-UAS systems DHS components should purchase, DHS has established multiple testbeds that represent a wide range of operational environments. Richmond, Virginia, was chosen as a testbed due to its dense urban terrain and environment, which can present technological challenges to C-UAS systems. Additionally, existing state and city programs, such as Virginia’s Department of Aviation’s (DOAV’s) work in drone traffic management, make Richmond an ideal DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) testbed location.
