Old Dominion University Professors Drew Landman and Dimitrie Popescu, along with students Abigail Stedman and Brian Duvall, from the Batten College of Engineering and Technology demonstrated engineering projects at the Virginia Aerospace, Aviation and Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Day Legislative Reception. They were joined by eight other ODU faculty and staff.
Aerospace Day offers representatives from Virginia's aerospace industry a chance to meet with state legislators in Richmond to highlight industry contributions and encourage participation in aerospace and aviation-related legislation.
The ODU team exhibited two projects related to UAS; a radio signal analysis used to detect drones and a new safety algorithm for autonomous unmanned aircraft.
The reception, hosted by the Virginia Aviation Business Association and the Virginia chapter of the Aerospace States Organization, is one of the largest receptions held during the legislative sessions.
ODU was an educational partner for the reception.
