SALINA, Kan. (AP) — Kansas' three largest universities have been selected by the Federal Aviation Administration to be a part of a team that will help integrate unmanned aerial systems into the nation's airspace.

The Salina Journal (http://bit.ly/1HiNd3o ) reports Kansas State University, the University of Kansas and Wichita State University have been named members of the FAA's Center of Excellence for Unmanned Aircraft Systems. According to a news release, the center will focus on research, education and training for the systems that are also known as drones.
