Reno, NV The American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) has added an indoor rotary-wing UAV live demonstration to the UAS Technical Demonstration and Symposium being held in Reno Nevada on October 21 and 22. This indoor demonstration will be held in the evening of the first day of the symposium (Tuesday 10/21) following a fixed-wing live demonstration at the Nevada Test Site Stead Airport and following a networking social on the exhibition floor at the Reno Ballroom. It will be a jam-packed day of sessions and demonstrations culminating in an opportunity for hands-on and up-close flying of rotary-wing or copter unmanned vehicles.

The indoor UAV demonstration will be held at the spacious Reno Event Center located across the street from the symposium venue (Reno Ballroom) and the symposium hotel (The Eldorado). The arena floor at the Event Center is 256’ x 212’ with a 43’-high ceiling, easily accommodating the needs of the flight of small rotary-wing unmanned aircraft.

A full line-up of events is provided on the symposium website at http://uasreno.org. See you in Reno!
