Drone Legislative Day - Capitol Visit in Sacramento

June 15, 2016

MESA Lab was fortunate to have participated in Drone Information Day at the California state capitol building this past Tuesday. We were able to share our expertise in Unmanned Aerial Systems(UAS) with many industry leaders and legiaslatures as well as reaching out to the general public. We relayed the imeasurable value that drones bring to multiple research disciplines as well as the nearly endless applications of drones. 

Special thanks to assemblyman Jose Medina for stopping by our table and supporting our research.
