Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Operations Workshop: Environmental Science Applications

September 7-8, 2016
Oregon State University

The Aerial Information System (AIS) Lab (http://ais.forestry.oregonstate.edu/) and NSF Centers for Transformative Environmental Monitoring Programs (CTEMPs) (http://ctemps.org) will offer a two-day hands-on workshop offering concise and practical information on UAS regulations, platforms, sensors, and software. This workshop is intended as a practical guide for those that want to learn how to integrate UAS capabilities into their research needs. 

Day 1 (September 7) UAS Operations: overview of potential UAS environmental science applications, regulatory considerations in the US, platforms, sensors, and operational planning (field trip)
Day 2 (September 8) UAS Sensors and Image Processing: Technical detail on how to collect and process remotely sensed imagery from a UAS
Detailed Agenda

Michael Wing and Jon Burnett – Oregon State University (Michael.Wing@OregonState.edu). Dr. Wing is an associate professor at Oregon State University, the director of the AIS Lab, and Air CTEMPs Director of Operations. Jon Burnett is a PhD student and associate director of the AIS Lab. The AIS Lab is one of the leading UAS research flight institutions in the US with regards to remote sensing applications for environmental science.
