Colorado State University Launches New Drone Center

Colorado State University (CSU) recently launched a center designed to make drone technology and drone pilots more accessible to university researchers.

Already assisting with several university projects, the CSU Drone Center, housed in the Vice President for Research Office, will help researchers access equipment and professional drone pilots, as well as receive assistance to get permission to fly in university and non-university airspace, according to CSU.

“Our goal is to remove barriers and increase access to drone and drone expertise so that drone-based research can flourish at CSU,” says CSU Police Department Sgt. Christopher Robertson, coordinator for the center. “We’re already seeing researchers use the center to successfully access information and data that would otherwise be difficult to access without a drone, such as measuring air pollution at varying altitudes and gathering detailed images of bridges for early detection of possible failures.”
