About the Alaska UAS Interest Group
From the website:
The Alaska UAS Interest Group started in the mid-2000s as a coming together of Alaskans interested in UAS operations in Alaska. In the early years, the primary purpose of the group was to disseminate news of UAS operations in Alaska, or involving Alaskans in other locations, and provide a network of UAS resources for operations that involved Alaskans through a contact list.The Alaska UAS Interest Group is supported by the Alaska Center for Unmanned Aircraft Systems Integration (ACUASI), the Geophysical Institute, and the University of Alaska Fairbanks.
