Award Winners from the 2008 AUVSI Competition

FLY MARINES - Photo of Utah State TeamJoe Brennan, the competition director, has emailed me the results of the AUVSI student competition mentioned in the last post. After a lot of googling, I have discovered some of the UAV team websites. I've also included a link to each of the university websites. If any of these are missing or incorrect, let me know in the comments or PM me (little envelope) and I'll update it.

Students searching for a college with an active UAS program should find this information useful.

Nicely done! Many thanks for your work on this. Your post is now the best single source on the web for information about this contest. Perhaps Joe should put a link to it on the official site. Seriously!

James,

Time to work your Google magic again: we need a post on the winners of AUVSI's other student competition, the International Aerial Robotics Competition, which concluded last week. Can you do it?

I spoke to someone a Utah State, they said this was their first year. The UA was probably the lowest cost system at the competition… Congratulations Utah State!
