ROME, N.Y. – Development continues on the Skydome at Griffiss in Rome, a project that will create the largest indoor drone testing and research site in the country.
Officials hope this will allow the region to lead the industry, and spur the local economy.
Oneida County’s director of economic development, David Catalfamo, say this project is “…very important as we work with the lab to continue to grow their presence and military and defense and commercial applications.”
The first 50-mile stretch of the drone corridor was completed in 2019, stretching from Rome to Syracuse.
Skydome is expected to be open by fall of 2020.
