UAS Cluster Initiative's Vertical Marketplace
At the UAS Cluster Initiative, we're continuously working to serve the membership of the emerging aerospace industry more effectively. In 2023, that meant launching two new products, Rethink Vertical podcast, and Charting the Course: Workforce Dynamics in Oklahoma's Emerging Aerospace Industry.

This year, we are building on the development of those products and working to make access to our vast array of resources more intuitively accessible.

That means all resources and products will live within the Vertical Marketplace on the website, enabling a one–stop, instinctual space for all things emerging aerospace.

The Vertical Marketplace is now open and you are invited to create a login to access Vertical Marketplace. You'll still be able to access this content free of charge, but by creating this login feature we'll be able to continue to work to create a more community-based environment that will continue to grow with us and the industry.

To create your login:
1) Go to
2) Click the person icon in the top-right corner
3) Click Create Account

Please let us know if you have any questions along the way. Our hope is that these changes will continue to enhance your experience.
