1 The County of Ventura Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Test Site Application Southern California Unmanned Systems Alliance SC-USA Presented to ACA September

2 California meets all FAA requirements for: High – Low, Fast – Slow, Mountainous, Maritime, Varied Temperatures. Ability to avoid over flight of populated areas, national parkland, tribal land, etc. Access to test ranges already conducting UAS operations of all types, sizes, scopes. Amazing Aerospace heritage including UAS companies in our region like AeroVironment, Lockheed Martin, Boeing, Northrup Grumman, General Atomics to name a few. Why California? 2

3 Population of 832,000, County workforce 8,000+ Budget of $1.8 Billion Good credit rating with ability to issue bonds Home to Navy Base Ventura County NAWC-WD Sea Test Range UAS Manufacturers And it is a beautiful place to be!! Why Ventura County? 3

13 Why is this Important?? ECONOMIC IMPACT and INNOVATION AUVSI Study shows that commercial UAS could create over 100,000 jobs and $80 Billion in Economic Impact nationally California is largest breadwinner with 17,000 jobs in and $2 Billion in positive economic impact annually over the next 10 years. California, particularly Southern California, is home to many of the World leaders in Aerospace and UAS technology innovation. The SC-USA Test Site Economic Benefit could provide more than 2,500 jobs and over $375 Million in positive economic impact over a 5 year period. 13

14 Privacy Statement The SC-USA respects the privacy concerns being voiced by the public and will comply with all existing laws and regulations regarding privacy. Emphasis in a policy will be placed on data collection, storage, use, and distribution. The SC-USA is engaged in the conversation regarding the privacy issue and the FAA has been tasked to require a privacy policy associated with the six test sites. The SC-USA Privacy Policy will incorporate industry best practices in conjunction with the FAA and other government agencies. 14
