UND gets new UAS tenant

GRAND FORKS, N.D. - A new tenant in the unmanned-aircraft industry will be leasing space at the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, the state Department of Commerce said this morning.

VirtualAgility, a Virginia-based software company, will be in the the Center for Innovation Foundation's tech incubator.

The company is the developer of Virtual AirBoss, which simplifies the acquisition, sharing and reporting of information about the activities of unmanned aircraft.

The lease agreement was signed earlier this month.

Bruce Gjovig, Center for Innovation CEO, said in a news release that VirtualAgility's CEO, Stuart Randolph, identified business opportunities in North Dakota after an industry summit in Grand Forks.

Another unmanned-aircraft industry tenant at the center is Northrop Grumman, the maker of Global Hawks now flying from Grand Forks Air Force Base.
