CRASAR was established in 2001 as part of NIUSR to foster unmanned systems being effectively used by formal emergency management agencies through voluntary national and international activities that deploy, promote, train, document, analyze, and disseminate scientific knowledge.  In 2002, it became a center within the University of South Florida and in 2008 moved to Texas A&M University. In 2017, CRASAR became a nonprofit corporation.
