Aerospace Engineering Program Director quoted in article on Drone Technology

Go Local Worcester contains an article on advances in drone technologies and efforts by lawmakers to regulate drones. The article, which in part notes WPI research on UAVs, quotes Nikolaos Gatsonis, director of the Aerospace Engineering program at WPI, on the increased availability of such devices and the growing need for regulation. The piece also describes research by Gatsonis and WPI professor of Mechanical Engineering professor Michael Demetriou funded by the Air Force Office of Scientific Research using drones to detect the location of stationary and moving gaseous sources. http://www.golocalworcester.com/news/does-unregulated-drone-technology-threaten-personal-privacy/
