NORMAN, Okla., 7 Feb. 2013. The Unmanned Systems Alliance of Oklahoma (USA-OK) will hold the 2013 Oklahoma Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Summit in Norman, Okla., on Tues., 26 March 2013.   

This is an important time for the unmanned aerial systems industry and for Oklahoma,” admits USA-OK President James L Grimsley. “Aerospace represents a significant portion of our state economy and UAS is expected to be the most dynamic growth sector within the aerospace industry in the next decade. Oklahoma has emerged as a leader in UAS and the Oklahoma UAS Summit will provide an opportunity for us to describe statewide plans and objectives for the industry.”

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin created the Governor’s Unmanned Aerial Systems Council, which includes representatives from industry, state government, and academia, in 2011. 

The Council and its partners in Oklahoma have organized resources and assets that promise to aid the nation in the safe integration and operation of UAS within the national airspace.

The 2013 Summit will delve into subjects and topics as:

  • the use of UAS for agriculture,
  • advanced weather monitoring and research, and
  • law enforcement and military applications of UAS technology. 

The summit will feature a panel discussion on various legal and social aspects of UAS, including privacy implications. 

The summit will include presentations from several UAS experts and officials, including Oklahoma Lieutenant Governor Todd Lamb.
The Unmanned Systems Alliance of Oklahoma (USA-OK) is a state chapter of the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI).
