KEITH TOWELL SHOWCASING UNMANNED AIR SYSTEMS AT NUCLEUS 2015
We’re pleased to announce that Keith Towell, Royal Academy of Engineering Visiting Professor for Innovation in Engineering, University of Southampton, will be hosting a breakout session in the Innovation Hub at the new science and technology event, Nucleus 2015.
Keith Towell will be discussing the Unmanned Air System activities of the Faculty of Engineering and the Environment and the work he does promoting innovation at the University of Southampton. He will highlight the University’s win at the Institute of Mechanical Engineers ‘Game of Drones’ Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) Challenge in which 12 universities competed in a number of categories. The University of Southampton won the prizes for Autonomous/Automatic Operations (sponsored by Northrop Grumman), Flying Operations (sponsored by RPS) and Overall Grand Champions (sponsored by Selex ES).
Keith Towell commented: “I believe Nucleus 2015 will be a great opportunity to showcase the capabilities of systems developed at the University. The IMechE Challenge met its objectives for enhancing the students’ experience of design-build-test projects, and I will be describing the project and the drone and showing a brief video of the drone in action, and discussing how UAS’s can be used in the real world.”
