UVS Demo at AIAA GNC 2010: Announcing the Winner of a HP Netbook

Earlier in August, delegates at the AIAA 2010 Guidance, Navigation and Control Conference had a chance to see a unique demonstration of controls for unmanned vehicles, presented at Quanser's Innovation Hub.

The interactive demo was focused on the Unmanned Vehicle Systems Lab, a new research platform that allows scientists to work with unmanned systems indoors - in a safe and controlled environment. Visitors to the Innovation Hub could not only try to fly the Qball, an unmanned aerial vehicle, they could also enter a draw to win a Hewlett Packard Netbook. The lucky winner is Oleg Yakimenko from the Naval Postgraduate School, Monterey, California. Congratulations!
