Defense Sector Council
Strategic Plan 2013

Nevada’s test ranges host specialized testing and training activities for unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) platforms, which will play a key role in the development of a new generation of military vehicles. Nevada’s commercial aerospace industry, represented with companies like Boeing and Bigelow Aerospace, is dedicated to provide affordable options for spaceflights to national space agencies and corporate clients, revolutionizing space commerce.

The Desert Research Institute, a publicly funded research center within the Nevada System of Higher Education, is a global innovator in the development and use of technology for this industry.

To support growth and future development of the A&D industry, Nevada has to produce an educated and skilled workforce. STEM education as a part of the high school curriculum will benefit students in their preparation for college in engineering fields.  Universities and community colleges are offering undergraduate and advanced degrees in Professional Aeronautics, Space Education, Systems Engineering, etc.

The mission of the GWIB Aerospace & Defense Sector Council will be to identify workforce needs and develop needed initiatives to educate its workforce in support of the economic development goals of the state.
