Co-hosted by SEAS

Grand Opening of SOAR-Thursday, September 30, 3-5pm


Please join us to celebrate the recently completed Unmanned Arial Vehicle (UAV) research and testing facility located near Crofts Hall on UB’s North Campus. Come see live UAVs in action via demonstration projects provided by the Departments of Industrial and Systems Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, Computer Science and Engineering and Electrical Engineering.

The completion of the 24,000-square-foot netted structure provides new opportunities for the operation and testing of drones. It is one of only several such facilities on university campuses throughout the country.

This facility represents the completion of Phase I of the construction of UB’s Structure for Outdoor Autonomy Research (SOAR) that will serve as the center of innovative UAV and automated land vehicle autonomy research and education. By creating a research complex dedicated to exploring the tremendous potential of un-crewed aerial and land vehicles, UB researchers, students and our partners will advance cutting-edge technological solutions to address challenges in transportation and delivery services, disaster response, and national security.
