Unmanned Aerial Systems in Marine Science and Conservation 2015: A Facilities Scoping Workshop

The capabilities of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) for marine science and conservation applications are growing rapidly at the local, regional and global levels. On June 29-30 2015, Duke University Marine Laboratory hosted a marine science UAS workshop to:

  • Better understand technological advances in UAS
  • Enhance collaboration with the extraordinary unmanned aerial systems expertise in North Carolina and the eastern coast of the US
  • Develop a strategy for educating the public on unmanned aerial systems use in marine science
  • Draft a plan of actions and milestones for creating a UAS facility; this facility would serve the unique needs of UAS research in the local marine sciences community and beyond
  • Date: June 29, 2015 - June 30, 2015
  • Location: Duke University Marine Laboratory
