The CSU Drone Center offers consultation on drone systems, UAS project guidance, UAS piloting, assistance with UAS pilot training, liaison and navigation of FAA regulations, and serves as point of contact for UAS inquiries from outside the University. The Center also assists in authorizing flight requests at CSU and managing the Christman Airfield use for drone flights.

The mission of the CSU Drone Center is to remove barriers to drone-enabled research at CSU and thereby allow these applications to grow and flourish, by providing access to equipment, technical expertise, and a community of collaborating researchers internal and external to the University.
