Moses Koyabe, Ideal Aerosmith’s Vice President for Business Development, was recently nominated to chair the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) Saguaro Chapter committee, organizing and hosting an Unmanned Vehicle Systems (UVS) Exhibition at the 2013 Marine Corps Air Station Yuma Airshow. The unified UVS display will showcase the variety, capabilities, deployment and use of unmanned vehicles and robotics for ground, maritime, air and space applications. It will not only provide the opportunity for a glimpse of the latest technologies but will also create awareness and inform students, engineers and the general public on the wide range of programs, application domains and career paths available in the rapidly growing fields of robotics, unmanned and optionally piloted systems.

This year’s airshow will be held at the Marine Corps Air Station in Yuma, Arizona on March 9th, 2013. A free general entrance will give attendees access to the UVS display, military and commercial aerial performances and aircraft static displays.

Representing more than 2,100 companies and organizations from more than 60 countries, the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI) is the world’s largest nonprofit organization devoted exclusively to advancing the unmanned systems community.

The mission of AUVSI is to promote and support the unmanned systems and robotics community through communication, education and leadership. By providing opportunities for information exchange, networking and business development, AUVSI forums are the best resource for learning about unmanned systems and robotics while staying abreast of the latest program and technology updates.

With members from government organizations, industry and academia, AUVSI is committed to fostering, developing, and promoting unmanned systems and robotics technologies. The AUVSI Saguaro Chapter extends its focus on community involvement, education, and growing the technology within the state of Arizona providing students with the opportunity to experience fun, hands-on robotics/unmanned systems activities that advance STEM education (science, technology, engineering and math) and new development tracks.
