British UAS Research Visits The Bay Area

In February 2018, the UK Science & Innovation Network brought researchers from the Universities of Southampton, Bristol, and Cranfield to the Bay Area, where they represented the UK’s newly-formed CASCADE research consortium at the NSF-funded Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems’ Industry Advisory Board (C-UAS IAB) meeting at Facebook Headquarters. C-UAS brings together five leading American universities and their industry partners to solve technical challenges in UAS research, and their biannual meeting presented a great opportunity to build partnerships that will support innovative science on both sides of the Atlantic.

While in California, the researchers met with leading UAS researchers at Stanford University, Lockheed Martin’s Advanced Technology Center, and UC Merced to explore novel applications of UAS technologies, share best practices on UAS safety, and discuss the intersection of artificial intelligence and aerospace research. Why is UK/US collaboration on UAS research important? We’ll let them explain.

  1. Thanks for this – UK/US Collaboration is just so vital – trade, development, military and tech – especially with Brexit and a changing world.
