Organization's Description:


Welcome to the Gulf Unmanned System Center

Significant advances and innovative applications of rapidly emerging technologies have altered the approach to missions that are dangerous, dull, or dirty. Today’s warfighter, first responder, and commercial logistics provider now employ unmanned or autonomous aerial, ground, surface, and under water systems in the performance of an ever-expanding range of missions.

Gulf Unmanned Systems Center (GUSC), with operations based in Carrabelle, Franklin County, Florida, is uniquely positioned to provide real-world training; tactical development; research and development; test; and evaluation opportunities for operators and mission planners striving to integrate unmanned capabilities into their operational procedures. GUSC also supports experimental and operational test and evaluation of new hardware and employment strategies.  As unmanned technologies transition from military into civil applications, GUSC provides an unequalled testbed for military, industry, and academic users to address existing and emerging needs and requirements.

Gulf Unmanned Systems Center encompasses over 250,000 acres of range facilities and tactical training areas consisting of riverine, coastal, and jungle environments.  This fusion of varied terrain promotes the operation of unmanned vehicles in one of the few sites in the United States capable of promoting the development of interoperability tactics and procedures between dissimilar platforms. The site also features multi-purpose ranges that support a variety of situational training.

GUSC provides:

  • Total systems engineering support for all types of unmanned aerial vehicles, surface craft and underwater vehicles;
  • Technology development and application Research and Development (R&D);
  • Technology insertion and systems integration;
  • Hardware and software fabrication;
