apologies for the last minute posting. This opportunity was presented to me and I wanted to share it with you. I consult with a local college on their UAV program and we've gotten an invitation to tour the Lakehurst NJ Naval Air facility.
This facility was recently awarded to be a test site for civilian UAS use in partnership with VA Tech, Drexel, and Rutgers. All 4 facilities presented proposals naming the other 3 as partners so if any of the 4 won, they would all win.
This is the location where the Hindenburg disaster took place and has been a long time home for lighter-than-air aircraft. We'll get a look at some full size Helo UAV's and get a briefing by one of the UAV team specialists.
We're limited to a small group of 15-20 but there may be some slots open. Its on a first come-first served basis with college students and faculty taking precedence. Those of us in Northern NJ will likely be carpooling. Along with indicating your interest here on this page, please send me an email so I have easier reference of those attending and a head count
You must provide valid and current photo ID, and if you are driving you must also show proof of current insurance and registration along with your driver's license.
Much more going on in the coming months!!
