The state is in final negotiations to allow the space agency to test unmanned aerial vehicles in Nevada airspace, the Governor’s Office of Economic Development said Friday.

Tom Wilczek, who works in the office and focuses on aerospace and defense industries, said a contract should be settled within the next two months. Under the contract, NASA can use a test site for drone-related projects such as developing an air traffic management system and conducting demo flights. The talks have been underway since October.

The agreement could mean a big boost for the state’s technology industry, Wilczek said. NASA would inevitably collaborate with Nevada companies in the commercial drone industry.

“NASA is doing a lot of the (research and development), but they are very, very interested in integrating the technological components that come from industry,” Wilczek said.
