“Nevada is one of the six locations approved by the Federal Aviation Administration for drone testing,” Sweeny said, “we’ve got the ability to use their indoor flight testing facilities, collaborate with their staff and hire their best graduates.” “It allows us to take our technology to the next level.”

As part of the deal, the university will take an equity stake in Flirtey.
