California State University Channel Islands UAV Poll


Dr. Sean Anderson and his students at California State University Channel Islands are conducting this survey on behalf of their ESRM 370 undergraduate class and their Aerial and Aquatic Robotic Research (“AARR”) Laboratory group.

They are studying the current use of and attitudes towards Unmanned Aerial Vehicles.  These devices are variously also known as UAV, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Remotely Piloted Systems (RPS), or simply “drones.”  While the military use of these systems may often be what people think of when they hear about this technology, we are exploring the rapidly-expanding, non-military use of systems created by hobbyists, researchers, and private industry.

They expect to conclude this survey by late April of 2016 and subsequently post results by early May to both their blog ( and suite of social media outlets.
