About

We are taking the leap to move beyond pretty pictures to use drones as our workhorses for collecting real data and providing real information. We’d like to invite you to share your thoughts and experiences at the UAS4RS 2017 (Unmanned Aircraft Systems for Remote Sensing) Conference to be held at the Hobart Function and Convention Centre, Tasmania 24 – 25 May 2017. The aim of UAS4RS 2017 is to bring together the UAS community in Australia, and to present and discuss UAS technology for remote sensing applications and information extraction.

 

This conference is for you if:

 

  • You’re a ‘doer’: you already use UAS as part of your remote sensing workflow and would like to share your experiences and challenges. We met many of you last year and would love to see you again!
  • You’re a ‘dabbler’: you’ve done some testing and think this technology might be the way forward for you. Perhaps our last year’s dabblers are now doers and would like to share?
  • You’re a ‘would-be dabbler’: you’ve heard the hype and you’re curious to know more. We’re super supportive of newbies and can guarantee you’ll walk away well informed.

 

We are designing an interactive and engaging program and we’d like you to be part of it! We’ll be actively linking you with UAS researchers, developers, systems and service providers, as well as end-users. There will be presentations, posters, exhibitions, live demonstrations, and discussions to exchange ideas on the use of UAS for remote sensing applications.

So whether you have a story to share, equipment to demonstrate, or would simply like to come along and learn more about this exciting technology, we welcome you to UAS4RS 2017!
