On May 21-22, CERC sponsored a workshop on the use of small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS) for environmental research. The workshop provided the audience with a thorough understanding of the capabilities and limitations of various SUAS platforms. Attendees learned what it takes to successfully implement sUAS and how the technologies may benefit various research applications.
The first day of the workshop had a variety of presentations on sUAS use cases, systems, architecture, and procedures among many others. For the second day of the workshop, participants met at Tea Hill Park for a hands on experience of managing and flying missions.
Below is a video summary of both days with interviews of some of the participants.
