GA-ASI announces collaboration with Kaist’s CR2CENT

General Atomics Aeronautical Systems, Inc., a leading manufacturer of Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems, has signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Korean Advanced Institute of Science and Technology, one of the world’s leading universities specializing in science and technology. KAIST is host to CR2CENT, Korea’s Civil RPAS Research Center, which provides advice and analysis to develop a legal and technological foundation for the safe and timely integration of RPAs into Korean civil airspace.

GA-ASI sees the collaboration with CR2CENT as an opportunity to gain a better understanding of the Korean civil airspace environment and its regulatory structure.

“We recognize the importance of the contributions that institutions like CR2CENT make to aviation,” said Joseph Song, vice president of international strategic development for GA-ASI. “We expect that aligning with CR2CENT and KAIST will help advance the ability of RPAS to fly in Korean civil airspace.”

“GA-ASI’s experience and know-how on airspace integration, as well as civil certification, is important to us,” said Dr. Hyunchul Shim, director of CR2CENT. “Our work with the company will set a great example of international collaboration in developing strategies for integrating RPAS in civil airspace.”
