Unmanned Aerial Systems
Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), or drones, may be relatively small, but could have a big impact on Nevada's economy and natural resources, especially when the necessary pieces and experts come together to do the work and research.
To that end, University of Nevada Cooperative Extension, in partnership with the Governor's Office of Economic Development and the University's Center for Economic Development at the College of Business, held a public workshop on unmanned aerial systems, with a focus on how communities in Nevada can become involved with this economic initiative.
Lieutenant Colonel Warren L. Rapp, Commander for the 232D Operations Squadron Creech AFB, presented an excellent overview on UAS for civilian applications at the at the Technology Business Alliance of Nevada (TBAN) Luncheon on January 15, in Las Vegas. His talk is titled, "Evolution of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) into Civilian Applications."
