Ohio/Indiana UAS Center partners with University of Cincinnati
The Ohio/Indiana UAS Center has teamed up with the University of Cincinnati to conduct research and development on systems necessary to execute precision flight control algorithms for small UAS. Outcomes from this research are targeted to help emergency responders but may also be leveraged for other industrial purposes. The small UAS leased by the UAS Center, is a rotocopter that weighs 15 pounds and has a payload capacity of 10 pounds.
Clark State Community College Begins Flying UAS for Precision Agriculture
Clark State Community College has initiated flying unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) as part of their new precision agriculture program. The new program is designed to prepare students for employment with companies using geospatial technologies, including geographic information systems (GIS) and global positioning systems (GPS) applied to agricultural production or management activities, such as pest scouting, site-specific pesticide application, yield mapping, or variable-rate irrigation.
