The Inaugural Meeting of the North Alabama UAS Special Interest Group (NA-UAS SIG) will take place on Thursday, September 04, 2014 at 2:30-4:00 PM CDT.

The meeting will take place at 7027 Old Madison Pike NW, Suite 108, Huntsville Alabama 35806

The North Alabama UAS Special Interest Group is an outcome of the GEOINT 2014 workshop held on August 13, 2014. 

The NA-UAS SIG is aligned with the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing ( and and GeoHuntsville (

The NA-UAS SIG is being established as a forum to facilitate and coordinate a sustainable and pragmatic infrastructure and environment that will enable the application of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) as a holistic enterprise - one that recognizes the interdependence among the academic, public, government and private sectors in the UAS arena and through which our community will be able to optimise the scientific, societal, and commercial benefits to be realized from UAS and UAS derived geospatial information into the next century.

Early Registration Deadline Extended for UAS MAPPING 2014 RENO

Reno, NV – The first technical UAS symposium sponsored by the American Society for Photogrammetry and Remote Sensing (ASPRS) is approaching (October 21-22)!  The deadline for early registration has been extended to allow attendees just learning about this exciting event to take advantage of low registration and exhibition fees.  The current fee for ASPRS members to attend the event is only $250. The current fee for non-ASPRS members to attend the event is only $300.  Exhibitors are provided an exhibit booth and benefits which include two complimentary registrations for only $600.  All rates will go up in price on September 12, 2014, so register now!

This unique event will showcase UAS in operation including flights of the first UAS Mapping Calibration Test Course designed to be a permanent facility for the validation and accuracy assessment of UAS sensor payloads.  General sessions will focus on the mapping and remote sensing aspects of unmanned acquisitions with the goal to provide practical information on UAS flight planning, acquisition, data processing and map production.  National and international speakers will address current-day and developing UAS applications.  Academia and research institutions will inform on existing educational and training opportunities.  Survey, mapping, and engineering firms will be on-hand to share their experience and further their UAS implementation strategies.  Government agencies will share information on the development of national and international mapping programs. UAS firms will benefit from meeting the managers of the Nevada UAS program and obtaining first-hand information on utilization of the Nevada UAS Test Site.
