University of Nevada, Reno joins with NevadaNano for flying robot sensor project
Date:3/6/2014

lying and hovering robots, often referred to collectively as drones, is enabling myriad applications in military reconnaissance, surveillance, law enforcement, hazardous waste inspection/removal, space exploration, recreation and entertainment, disaster search and rescue operations and remote sensing and mapping.

NevadaNano and the University of Nevada, Reno both agree the timing of the contract could not have been better considering the Federal Aviation Administration's recent designation of Nevada as a UAS test site, the launch this semester of the University's new UAS minor degree and plans for the University's new advanced autonomous systems innovation center moving ahead.

"The College of Engineering has made the area of advanced autonomous systems a strategic area of focus and growth in educational, research and outreach productivity," Manos Maragakis, dean of the College of Engineering, said. "This is an area of research and development with huge potential for the economic growth of our region. One of the main reasons is the autonomous aerial systems, which have generated a rapidly growing interest in our state's existing and future industry.

"This project presents a partnership between the University and industry to address a problem of national importance and aligns perfectly with our vision and efforts in the area of autonomous systems. We will continue pursuing more projects and partnerships of this type."
