Unmanned aerial systems couple innovative design and construction to assist business, science, the military and even ensure public safety from the air. Alaska offers a vast landscape in which unmanned aircraft can work. Whether it's monitoring the state's wildlife, gathering data on precious resources or assisting public safety efforts, these aircraft are proving themselves a crucial component of living and operating in the far north.
Now is your opportunity to participate in a forum dedicated solely to setting goals for unmanned aircraft in the Arctic.
