UTA leading the field with unmanned drones

Posted: Updated:
ARLINGTON, Texas -

The use of drones is creating a need for a new workforce and students at the University of Texas at Arlington are on top of it.

The university hosted a special conference on the technology. Student teams showed off their ideas.

"You can have it going around an area, detect an object, follow an object. It will follow it around. It has military applications. It can go around in recon missions. If it detects certain movement, it can latch on and can follow it so you can keep track of that movement as well," said Ragha Rendea, a UTA graduate student who was demonstrating a drone.

Texas was chosen as one of six test sites for unmanned drones. A new grant will create training and educational opportunities for those preparing for jobs in aviation.
