  Why Attend:
Do you know how the use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS)/Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)/Drones can impact your current and future projects?
  • How can UAV-based remote sensing data help reduce risks, increase field-staff safety, lower field logistics costs?
  • Is this a new cost to current field logistics, or a shift across categories?
  • How do the current and rapidly developing mix of regulations and technology impact planning and implementing UAV-based methods?
This workshop is designed to benefit all levels, from the manager worried about meeting project needs with declining field budgets, to field technicians and students who have to figure out how to get it done in the field, and then work the data up back in the lab.

Day 1 (March 19): will include classroom (UAF) and field time. Instructors will present case studies of Alaska based fisheries and water resource applications which utilized UAVs (drones) combined with various data-collection technologies, types of remote sensing data that can be collected, benefits and drawbacks, as well as other pertinent information on how to utilize UAV technology. Day one will conclude with a demonstration of UAVs in the field.

Day 2 (March 20th): will be held at the University of Alaska Fairbanks. This will be a hand's on opportunity to work with data collected by UAVs (Day 1) as well as go into more detail regarding the type of data collected, processing requirements, types of UAVs and how to plan UAV applications in your future projects.

Coffee, breakfast treats and lunch provided both days.
