Senator John Hoeven today joined General Atomics Aeronautical Systems CEO Linden Blue to announce that General Atomics will more than triple its presence at Grand Sky Technology Park. General Atomics and Grand Sky signed an agreement today to lease additional space, including a hanger for flight training and aircraft maintenance, facilities and classrooms.

“We’ve worked hard to put in place the pieces to ensure our state is leading the way in UAS research and development,” said Hoeven. “The agreement reached today between General Atomics and the Grand Sky Technology Park is further proof that North Dakota is the place for all things UAS and we look forward to the opportunities and economic growth this will bring to our state.”
