COVID-19 Resource Center

To help our members and the unmanned systems community better contend with the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, AUVSI is organizing updates and analysis on available government resources while continuing to track additional developments. We will be adding content to this page regularly as new information is released. If you have any additional information to contribute or questions, please email Please note that the AUVSI offices in Virginia are currently closed, but the full staff is available and working remotely.


AUVSI is calling on our manufacturing base to help combat the COVID-19 pandemic. There is an urgent need for personal protective equipment (PPE) to support medical professionals who are on the front lines of this fight, and FEMA is looking for companies who can pivot their core production to help supply these critical items:

  • Surgical Gowns
  • Surgical Masks
  • Respirators - N95 Masks
  • Shoe Covers
  • Gloves
  • Face Shields/Safety Goggles
  • Hand Sanitizer

​For additional details on these items, please review the ASTM Standards.

If you think your manufacturing capabilities could support production of any of the items above, please tell us now. Time is short and the need is immense.
