After a six-year competitive effort, the Federal Aviation Administration in May designated ASSURE as the new national Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aircraft Systems.

Luxion is a graduate of the U.S. Air Force Academy in Colorado Springs, CO, he retired from the service as a colonel in 2014, and has been working in the private sector.

"I am looking forward to being part of the ASSURE team working to safely, efficiently and effectively move unmanned aerial systems into the national airspace system where they will serve to improve our lives in ways we have yet completely imagined," he said.
