SAN BERNARDINO: Airport could become drone research hub
San Bernardino International Airport could become ground zero for commercial drone research and technology.
The airport is partnering with Tesla Foundation Group, not connected to Elon Musk’s Tesla Motors, but a leader in the field of drone use and technology.
“The (drone) industry is evolving and we are trying to evolve with it,” said Mark Gibbs, director of aviation at SBIA.
Airport officials and the Tesla Foundation Group have been working to find other partners, resources and systems to support the National Commercial Drone Research Center, the “think tank and research and development center,” Gibbs said, which could open next year.
