The Choctaw Nation of Oklahoma – along with our event sponsors - cordially invite you to attend the 2018 Choctaw Nation Regional UAS Conference and Symposium on February 28, 2018 at the Choctaw Casino and Resort in Durant, Oklahoma. The morning UAS conference begins at 8:30am and will end at noon, and the afternoon symposium begins at 1:30pm and will end at 4:30pm.

Symposium Focused on Medical Applications of UAS/Drone Technology

The highlight of the event will be an afternoon symposium that focuses on the fascinating topic of medical deliveries using small UAS (“drones”). The symposium will feature presentations from John Hopkins University researchers, led by Dr. Timothy Amukele, and their work that led to a new delivery distance record in 2017 for medical drones, successfully transporting human blood samples across 161 miles of Arizona desert. During this record-setting three-hour flight, the on-board payload system maintained temperature control, ensuring the samples were viable for laboratory analysis after landing. The afternoon symposium will also include presentations from experts in areas such as “smart cities” and related topics.
