System Policy on Unmanned Aerial Systems

Main Content

The University has implemented a process by which researchers, departments and University-related projects can request permission to fly UAS on campus or for University business.  This includes both indoor and outdoor use of UAS on both Carbondale and Edwardsville campuses.

WHAT'S NEW

  • Indoor flights of approval drone (UAS) projects on campus are allowed.
  • Outdoor flights on campus are allowed, after internal approval and subject to Part 107 regulations. 
  • Outdoor flights at non-campus locations are allowed for approved projects.
  • Flights on the Carbondale campus are further limited by a Part 107 Waiver from the FAA.
