About Unmanned Coast

Unmanned Systems. Uncommon People. Unparalleled Innovation.

Unmanned Coast, a program of the Magnolia Business Alliance, coordinates business activities among companies supporting unmanned systems on the Mississippi Coast. Unmanned Coast supports the growing unmanned system operational and development needs of this industry driven by the US Department of Defense, US Department of Homeland Security, and science agencies.

 

Unmanned Coast advocates for member businesses providing expanded opportunities for doing business with the government and broadening the footprint along the gulf coast and beyond into other industries and markets. We specialize in partnering and teaming businesses to win contracts.

 

Goals

  • To identify, and disseminate information on government programs, federal, state, and local that exists to enhance the competitiveness of unmanned systems businesses working locally.

  • To educate elected officials in the development of economic practices, policy, and incentives that facilitate competitiveness and growth of the unmanned systems industry.
