A researcher at upstate New York’s Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT) has won a grant from the IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society to host a workshop on unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) at RIT this fall.
Emmett Ientilucci was awarded $2,700 to organize the second annual workshop on “Systems and Technologies for Remote Sensing Applications Through Unmanned Aerial Systems” (STRATUS). The IEEE Geoscience and Remote Sensing Society is sponsoring the event with initial co-sponsorship from RIT’s Chester F. Carlson Center for Imaging Science Digital and Remote Sensing Lab, says RIT.
According to the university, the workshop will bring together researchers from academia, industry representatives and the end-users who integrate drones into their business operations.
“The STRATUS workshops are helping to put RIT on the map as a resource for the drone community,” Ientilucci says. “Last year, 82 people from academia and industry registered for the first STRATUS conference at RIT, and I anticipate more interest this year.”
