CanberraUAV is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to developing and promoting the field of civilian UAV’s. The club is focussed on three major areas:
1. Research and Development of hardware/software parts for amateur civilian UAV’s. Any parts developed by CanberraUAV are open source. Any CanberraUAV member can research and develop anything that will further this field and they think is worthwhile.
2. Education and Collaboration. Educating the public about the potential uses of civilian UAV’s and collaborating with local search and rescue organisations with what they want from UAV’s. Working with local schools and universities to teach and develop UAV systems, showing that open-source UAV’s are easy-to-use, safe, accessible, practical and affordable.
3. Competing in UAV competitions, such as the UAV Outback Challenge. CanberraUAV won the 2014 event.
This demonstration promises to be an excellent activity for the Branch, no matter what your field. Friends and children are more than welcome. In the event of poor weather we will revert to our usual location at ADFA for a briefing that will use photos and simulations to show us how CanberraUAV achieve their missions. This decision will be posted byat the latest on the Facebook page.
