The University of Adelaide’s Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility (URAF) invites you to join them for an information session and networking opportunity.
Title: Drones, the University and Beyond
When: 3pm, Friday October 7, 2016
Where: Room 313/314, Level 3, The Braggs
This event is an opportunity to obtain a deeper insight into some of the URAF’s current projects, as well as an understanding of the regulations and compliance matters associated with the use of drones throughout the University.
The event will be followed by food, drinks and a relaxed opportunity to chat to team members and University staff and students, about this evolving technology.
Recent technological advancements have rapidly broadened the potential range of applications for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs, drones or Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems). Subsequently, the use of this technology has grown in popularity across a broad range of study areas and practices.
The URAF provides the organisational infrastructure, as well as the technical and legislative knowledge base concerning the use of drones, for a wide range of environmental and agricultural applications. Additionally, the Facility holds and manages the University of Adelaide’s Operator’s Certificate for full compliance with Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) guidelines and regulations. Consequently, all drone-associated activities within the University must be run via engagement with the URAF.
