Today we were delighted to host a visit of dignitaries from Nepal, led by Mr Mahesh Prasad Dahal, Nepalese Defence Secretary, and Lt General Purna Chandra Thapa, Army Chief of Staff.  The visitors were briefed on the capabilities and experience of CAeS in the application of drone/UAV technology to solve real world operational problems.

Much of the discussion revolved around the particular challenges of the terrain and varied weather conditions that would affect UAV operations in Nepal.  Following the meeting the visitors were shown CASSIUS, the current CAeS drone system and then went on to visit Cranfield University’s UAV Lab to see some examples of the drone research that has been carried out in recent months.
