Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Operation Demonstration and Training Session with 3DR

Presentation Notes
  • Gregory Crutsinger, Academic Program Director with UAV/UAS firm 3DR (Based in Berkeley, discussed their product line-up, potential and future uses in academic research. Please contact before making any purchases to get academic pricing.  greg@3drobotics.com
  • Brandon Stark,  Director of UC Center of Excellence on Unmanned Aerial System
    Safety (based at UC Merced). Outlined the requirements for flying a UAV/UAS system officially for research with the University. See slides for more details. Contact if you have questions, need FAA forms, or aren’t sure what you need to get started. The center is new, and a website with information and forms will be announced later this year. bstark2@ucmerced.edu
