UAS in Cape May County

Comprising a peninsula at the southernmost point of New Jersey, Cape May County enjoys airspace for UAS flights that’s among the sweetest in the Northeast United States. The County’s extensive drone program puts this advantage to best use. Our activities include:

  • Innovation Forums: Every six weeks, UAS innovators from throughout N.J. and surrounding states meet here for a half day of talking about their latest R&D efforts in UAS technology. We offer an interest speaker or two, and a hearty lunch, and ideas fly.
  • Tech Incubator: This Fall, we’re launching our first incubator; it will host seven early-stage UAS companies.
  • Public Use COA: After an arduous approval process, the County received authorization from the FAA to conduct public use flights under its own COA, covering 800 square miles of airspace up to an altitude of 7,000 feet.
  • Special Events: We have been thrilled to serve as site for special events like a workshop for United Nations representatives learning about the new guidelines for using drones in international disasters.
  • Teaming Efforts: We do everything we can to bring innovators together with potential users of their products and services, whether this means facilitating introductions or putting together an innovator/end user conference.
  • Emergency Response Specialty: We are privileged to engage in public-private teaming addressing use of UAS technology to improve First Responder tools. While we did not enter this activity for publicity purposes, the efforts have gained national, and in some cases, international attention. Most importantly, emergency management professionals are looking to the County as a testing ground for new developments in this worthy cause.

Please feel free to visit us and participate in our Innovation Forums and other activities. If you would like to be placed on our UAS mailing list, please call 609-465-1085.
