Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) play an important and growing role in agriculture and natural resource teaching, resource, and extension work. The University of Arizona is developing processes and policies to ensure that this new technology is used safely and in a way that protects the interests of the University. Prior to the purchase of any UAV by an ALVSCE unit or employee, read and follow the attached memorandum.
A UAV inventory is maintained by the Associate Vice President for Research; all UAVs owned by ALVSCE's units must be added to this inventory list. ALVSCE will not pay fines or penalties, or financially support employees involved in legal matters caused by non-compliant UAV use. Additional information on University standards for UAV use should be directed to UA Risk Management.
