The Army's Project Management Office for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (PM UAS) officially welcomed Mississippi State University faculty and students into their academic outreach program during a signing event held at PM UAS offices on Redstone Arsenal.
Officially a memorandum of understanding between the project office and MSU, the agreement was signed by COL Tim Baxter, project manager for PM UAS, and Dr. David Shaw, MSU vice-president for research and economic development.
The MOU will support the development of course work at the graduate and undergraduate levels as well as research in the burgeoning field of unmanned aircraft.
"Universities see unmanned aircraft technologies as the way of the future and we're seeing more and more schools stand up programs for the research and development of unmanned systems," Baxter said. "This effort will allow the Army to further promote independent research and development at the university level and develop student interest in the Army's UAS program."
