The UAV Challenge Organisers are grateful to the Queensland Government for their Gold Sponsorship of the 2018 UAV Challenge. The high-school competition next week will be known as the Queensland Government Airborne Delivery Challenge 2018.
The Queensland Government was a foundation partner of the UAV Challenge in 2007 and have supported our events ever since. We really could not have developed the UAV Challenge into the success it has become without the Queensland Government. This year the sponsorship of the government comes from the Departments of Science, Information Technology and Innovation; Natural Resources and Mines, and Defence Industries Queensland, within the Department of State Development. The government is helping Queensland maintain its position as a major hub for aviation and aerospace activity, including unmanned aerial systems (UAS). Thanks to the Queensland Government!
