We are delighted that in 2016 the UAV Challenge events have the support of fourteen organisations. This is an amazing outcome for the UAV Challenge and we are very grateful for all the support that we are receiving. In 2016 we have the Queensland Government as a supporter, Insitu Pacific, Northrop Grumman and Lockheed Martin as Platinum Sponsors, Boeing as a Gold Sponsor, Little Ripper Lifesaver, MathWorks and CASA as Silver sponsors, LightWare Optoelectronics, Defence Science and Technology Group, the Australian Robotics & Automation Association, and Western Downs Regional Council as Bronze sponsors. The UAV Challenge is again co-organised by Queensland University of Technology’s Australian Research Centre for Aerospace Automation and CSIRO’s Data61. The UAV Challenge would not be possible without the financial support that all of these organisations bring.
