LAS VEGAS – The Governor’s Office of Economic Development and DJI, a global leader in developing and manufacturing high-performance small Unmanned Aerial Systems, are collaborating to advance the global development of the unmanned systems industry.

As such, one of the first steps of this collaboration is DJI’s donation of various Unmanned Aerial Vehicle platforms to the Nevada Institute of Autonomous Systems to help further develop the education pipeline for the Unmanned Aerial Systems industry in Nevada.

The donation of the DJI platforms will allow Nevada secondary school students interested in UAS to experience them first-hand and will provide more testing opportunities for the State’s Program Management Office. The platforms will also be made available for use by institutions within the Nevada System of Higher Education.

“As a state, it is exciting when there is an opportunity to partner industry with education to help pave the way in an emerging field,” said Steve Hill, Director of the Governor’s Office of Economic Development. “It is even more exciting when a world-leading company decides to invest in the future of our state. I look forward to the great initiatives that will result from this partnership with DJI.”

“We hope that this joint project with the Governor’s Office of Economic Development and NIAS will be the start of many blossoming partnerships between DJI and many others among professional industries in Nevada,” said Jonathan Young, Product Marketing Manager for DJI.

DJI’s donation to NIAS includes: Phantom FC40; Phantom 2 Vision; Phantom 2 Vision+; and Spreading Wings S900. These platforms will be available both in northern and southern Nevada. To learn more about these unmanned systems, click here.
