It's been up for a while, but if you haven't checked out the website, here it is:


Mission Statement:


"The mission of the Congressional Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Caucus is to educate members of Congress and the public on the strategic, tactical, and scientific value of UAVs, actively support further development and acquisition of more capable UAVs, and to more effectively engage the civilian aviation community on UAV use and safety.


As members of this Caucus, we:

  1. Acknowledge the overwhelming value of UAVs to the defense, intelligence, homeland security, and the scientific communities;
  2. Recognize the urgent need to rapidly develop and deploy more UAVs in support of ongoing operations;
  3. Work with the military, industry, NASA, the Department of Homeland Security, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), and other stakeholders to seek fair and equitable solutions to challenges created by UAV operations in the U.S. National Air Space (NAS);
  4. Support our world-class industrial base that engineers, develops, manufactures, and tests UAVs creating thousands of American jobs;
  5. Support policies and budgets that promote a larger, more robust national security UAV capability."
