Event to bring together innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, government officials
LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 5, 2013) — Innovative use of drone technology is nothing new for University of Kentucky researchers, who have – for over 10 years – developed airplanes to fly on Mars and to measure atmospheric conditions affecting crop pollination and severe weather.
Drones, more formally referred to as Unmanned Aerial Systems, or UAS, will be the subject of a conference next Wednesday, Dec. 11 from 2 to 4 p.m., focusing on UAS for commercial applications in Kentucky. The conference will be held at the Commerce Lexington building located at 330 E. Main Street in downtown Lexington. Aimed at bringing together innovators, researchers, entrepreneurs, industry, and government officials, the conference will serve to connect those who may be interested in UAS.
