Dayton college becoming leader in drone technology

Posted: Updated:

DAYTON, Ohio (AP) - A Dayton community college has taken another step toward positioning itself as a leader in drone technology research.

Sinclair Community College officials on Tuesday announced plans for the renovation of an existing downtown Dayton campus building into a $5 million training and certification center for unmanned aerial systems.

Despite the region being passed over for an FAA drone testing site last year, Sinclair has moved full speed ahead on the development, teaching and application of the technology.

The Dayton Daily News reports that the growth in the technology was on display Tuesday during the first day of the three-day Ohio UAS Conference in Dayton, which has drawn more than 700 people and 70 exhibitors across the United States, Israel, Mexico and Australia.
