Arkansas Unmanned Aerial System Summit, Oct 27th
On behalf of Dr. Jim Rankin, Vice Provost, Research and Economic Development, please accept the our invitation to the first Arkansas Unmanned Aerial System Summit on October 27th, 2016 from 08:30 am to 1:30 pm. The summit will be in the auditorium at 2 East Center Street in Fayetteville.
The purpose of the summit is to provide networking opportunities as well as awareness of the research and operations utility of UAS in Arkansas. Our hope is that the connection between academe, industry and government officials will begin a dialogue that increases the utility of UAS in Arkansas while exploring way to improve economic development for UAS in the state. These applications include, but are not limited to, supply chain, emergency management, law enforcement, security, logistics management, geospatial/mapping, agriculture and forestry management, optimization and other engineering applications.
We are asking for your input on how you utilize this technology. If you would like a slot to provide information, please respond with any area you would like to present. We will reach out to some of you individually for participation as well.
Please feel free to forward this invitation to interested individuals and have them rsvp to the contact information below so we can plan for the number of attendees. Please don’t hesitate to contact myself or Dr. Rankin if you have any questions.
