[May 24, 2014]  DECATUR - Ag Eagle, SenseFly, Horizon Precision, MLB, and other makers of unmanned aerial systems will be among many companies exhibiting their precision aerial technology at the Precision Aerial Ag Show, scheduled for July 9 & 10 at Decaturís Progress City USA. The technology show is drawing global interest from both exhibitors and attendees, who will be watching the unmanned aerial vehicles in the air and real-time video output from many of them.

Headlining the list of speakers at PAAS 2014 is Brendan Schulman, the attorney who successfully represented a photographer whose camera-drone was cited by the Federal Aviation Administration as violating its policies. Also speaking will be several university researchers providing current and future perspectives on unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) use in agricultural applications. A panel of farmers will also relate their experiences and use of UAV technology on their farm, along UAV consultant Chad Colby about making UAV purchase decisions.

This event would be of interest to agricultural producers wanting more information to make crop management decisions, regarding fertility, moisture, pest control, and other efficiencies. There are wide applications, beyond agriculture, for UAV systems.

The Precision Aerial Ag Show will also feature both indoor and outdoor exhibits by a wide variety of vendors demonstrating products and services related to unmanned aerial technology or related applications. Ticket information and advanced ticket sales are at
