The fifth annual Unmanned Systems Academic Summit is again being co-hosted by The Ohio State University and the Sinclair College National UAS Training and Certification Center to facilitate an open dialog related to ongoing activities, technologies, and trends in UAS education and research. This year, topics will cover an expanded array of unmanned systems topics, not just those focused on Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS).
Invited experts will provide focused presentations related to their work in unmanned systems research and development, education and training, commercialization, and technology transfer covering air, ground, and water domains.
In addition to the speakers and demonstrations, the Summit format will provide ample time for networking during the provided morning breakfast break, lunch, and afternoon breaks.
Attendees will also have an opportunity to participate in hands-on UAS simulation, indoor flight, wind tunnel, and other demonstrations during the end of the day reception in the Sinclair National UAS Training and Certification Center and UAS Indoor Flying Pavilion.
