In collaboration with InterDrone, the Nevada Institute for Autonomous Systems (NIAS), Nevada State College (NSC) and the City of Henderson are promoting unmanned aircraft system (UAS) demonstration flights at the Henderson Unmanned Vehicle Range (HUVR).
The demonstration flights will be coordinated by NIAS and conducted at HUVR, located at NSC. Several commercial drone companies will demonstrate different flight profiles and operations during the event, taking place 8:00 – 11:00 a.m. PST on Tuesday, Sept. 5. Individuals from local industry, as well as InterDrone attendees and exhibitors, are invited to attend.
The HUVR UAS test range is being developed in cooperation with the City of Henderson (Nevada’s second-largest city), NIAS and NSC for the purpose of facilitating commercial UAS testing, development and training.
“Having HUVR on the NSC campus allows our students to engage in state-of-the-art data analytics,” comments Andy Kuniyuki, dean of the School of Liberal Arts & Sciences at NSC. “While UAS provide a unique platform to capture data, what is more important is making sense of the information. We want our students to participate in this field.”
“We are excited to be partnering with HUVR, the Henderson Unmanned Vehicle Range, to allow some of the thousands coming to InterDrone 2017 to experience the latest commercial drone technology up close and in real flying conditions,” adds Ted Bahr, chairman and founder of InterDrone, which is running Sept. 6-8 at the Rio Hotel in Las Vegas.
