SAGRO - Public Dissemination Event

3 July 2017

Following the successful completion of the SAGRO project, the Institute of Aerospace Technologies would like to invite the general public and aerospace professionals to a dissemination event in connection with this research project.

SAGRO was a project funded by the Malta Council for Science Technology (MCST) through the National R&I Programme (Grant Agreement R&I-2013-042). Its purpose was to develop multi-sensor obstacle detection and tracking technologies for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) and Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems (RPAS).

This project was led by Idox Health (formerly 6PM) in collaboration with the Institute of Aerospace Technologies at the University of Malta.

Further details on this event can be found on our Facebook.
