Guys
Yesterday I spoke with the technical director of the 3rd Annual AUVSI student UAV Competition Mr. Mark Pilling of Eagan McAllister Associates, Inc (EMA) 47332 Eagan McAllister Ln. Lexington Park MD 1- 301-863-2192 ext. 2345 or 410-610-8472. http://www.bowheadsupport.com/paxwe...ers/default.htm

Mr. Pilling explained to me that Unlike the DARPA Grand Challenge of 2004 and now the upcoming 2005 that is open to any one that would like to participate. http://robotics.usc.edu/grandchalle...ules_8oct04.pdf

The 3rd Annual AUVSI student UAV Competition is only open to universities and undergraduate students.

Mike Robinett and I have once again been batting around the idea of having a UAV/RPV meet for all of us that are working on UAVs and RPVs.
This event would be an open event that any one could attend even the universities and undergraduate students.
It would be an event for those of us that are working on UAVs and RPVs where we could display and fly our UAVs or RPVs.
Regardless of the type of UAV/ RPV be it fixed wing or rotary wing or even lighter than air.
What we would like to do here is get a consensus as to how many of you would be willing to attend such a meeting.
Our idea is that this event would be open to any one and every one that is involved with UAVs or RPVs.
Please post a yes or no reply so that we can get a feel for the numbers of you that are interested attending so that we can determine if there is enough interest in having a UAV / RPV meet and go forward with it.
Any one willing to help with this project can contact me at the numbers listed below we can use all the help that we can get.
Thanks

Hi Dave,
a terribly nice effort. I hope that would steer the nonsense talk into something all of us can benefit.
How can we take part at this from outside the USA?

I'm game
Not that my setup is really advanced or anything, but I wouldn't mind the opportunity to see what others have done and are doing.

Guys
So far I have received replies from over a dozen of you that are interested in having a UAV meet.
I know that there are others of you out there that have not responded please do so.
The response that I have receive so far has been very positive. The first question that I have been ask is where should we hold it.
My first response to that is any place that we can get that has enough room to allow us to fly.
Some of you guys would like it to be close to where you live and I under stand that, however that just will not work out for everyone involved so my suggestion is that everyone look around your home state for a satiable flying site and we will toss all the locations in the hat and go from there.
I have been ask if it would be open to commercial companies my answer to that is yes and that it would be an open event that any one could attend even the universities and undergraduate students.
It would be an event for all of us that are working on UAVs and RPVs, for universities, commercial companies it would be a place where we could display and fly our UAVs or RPVs regardless of the type of UAV/ RPV, be it fixed wing or rotary wing, gas or electric powered or even lighter than air be it autonomous or RPV or flown by video.
I see it as being open to all and any one.
Please copy this posting to other forums and less see if we can get enough guys interested to get this thing going.
If each of you posted it to one other forum I believe that the interest would grow very fast.
You can all use my email address as a point of contact dave@auav.net and I will keep a running total as to the amount of interest.
Thanks

Dave,

Sounds like a really great idea. Please count me in as well. Sounds like the biggest issue is location...

Yes finding a suitable location to hold this event is the biggest issue of all and I can understand why everyone would like to have it in there own back yard, convenience.
I have 3 possible locations that I am looking into. If is't at all possible to hold it at a centrally located site then I will try my best to do so.
