NIST Seal 5x5.png

The U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) is developing a comprehensive set of standard test methods and associated performance metrics to quantify key capabilities of emergency response robots.


These test methods address responder-defined requirements for robot mobility, manipulation, sensors, energy, communications, operator proficiency, logistics and safety for remotely operated ground, aerial, and aquatic systems. 

Granite Defense supports and promotes the NIST standardization of training for sUAS pilot and aircraft testing.  GDT also helps maintain the NIST components located at Reveille Peak Ranch.
