SINGAPORE UAS COMMUNITY

The Singapore Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Community was conceived with the support of the Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) and Enterprise Singapore (ESG), to represent and serve the interests of the emerging UAS industry.

Building upon our strengths as an Association, we will engender the UAS Community, and together, play a role in supporting market development and access, sourcing of new technologies, development of standards and policy advocacy.

Please reach out to our Programme Executive Ms Stephanie Lo (stephanie_lo@aais.org.sg ) for more information.
