Eyes in the skies: Drone aficionados to discuss unmanned aerial vehicles
Start Date: 4/8/2013Start Time: 10:00 AM
End Date: 4/8/2013End Time: 11:00 AM

Event Description:
Brian Zvaigzne and Patrick Sherman, founders of Roswell Flight Test Crew, will discuss a range of issues related to the operation of small, multi-rotor, aerial platforms from 10-11 a.m. Mon., April 8, in 1001 Agricultural Sciences Building.

The hobbyists build and pilot small unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV), often referred to as drone aircrafts, with mounted thermal sensors, cameras, and video transmitters which allow them to have a first-person view of what the model is seeing.

Although controversial – especially with regard to privacy concerns – use of the technology could benefit WVU researchers tasked with mapping and measuring some of the Mountain State’s natural resources.

The lecture is sponsored by the Natural Resources Analysis Center in the Davis College of Agriculture, Natural Resources and Design.
