Extensive Support to DOD Aviation and UAS Centers Of Excellence

  • PACI advisors have experience as members of the Joint Unmanned Aircraft Systems Center of Excellence, US Army-Europe Aviation Safety and Standardization Detachment, and inaugural establishment of the US Army-Europe Unmanned Aircraft Systems Training and Standardization Center of Excellence (UAS T&SCE), and extensive experience in international UAS operations (Afghanistan, Iraq, Italy, Colombia, Peru, Macedonia, Romania, Kosovo, NATO and the UN).
  • PACI advisors have been key contributors to aviation-related programmatic documents (i.e., Concepts of Operation, Roadmap and Instructions) as demonstrated by the 2008 UAS Integration program for the Colombian Air Force, the 2011 Air-Land-Sea Agency (ALSA) Multi-Service Tactics, Techniques and Procedures for Tactical Employment of Unmanned Aircraft Systems, the 2008 Joint Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Training Qualification and Standards Architecture (TQSA).
  • The latter report was the Joint Unmanned Aircraft System Center of Excellence (JUAS COE) reply to a tasking from the Joint Requirements Oversight Council (JROC) to develop joint minimum unmanned aircraft system (UAS) training qualifications and standards across the DoD, including the requirements for integration into the National Airspace System (NAS); and was used to establish joint minimum UAS training qualifications as CJCSI 3255.01, Joint Unmanned Aircraft Systems Minimum, Training Standards.
