Indiana Logistics Summit to Feature Unmanned Systems Focus


1444_uao_drone_1.20.14ii Indiana Logistics Summit to Feature Unmanned Systems FocusEmerging technologies will take center stage when speakers from NASA and Indiana State University address logistics leaders at the 13th annual Indiana Logistics Summit on Tuesday, Sept. 22, at the Indiana Convention Center.

Unmanned systems will be a primary theme for presentations by Frank Jones, associate director for research services directorate at the NASA Langley Research Center, and Dr. Richard Baker, director of Indiana State University’s new Center for Unmanned Systems.

During his remarks, Jones will recount last month’s first-ever package delivery in the U.S. by an unmanned aircraft system (UAS). Dr. Baker, who is preparing to launch the state’s first drone degree this fall, will focus on training minds to work with unmanned systems.

“New technology continues to offer more opportunities in supply-chain logistics,” says Dr. Baker. “The burgeoning field of unmanned systems reinforces that the future is now – and they are already being widely used in agriculture, mining, research and emergency response roles.”
