Ugandan Delegation visits Quest UAV Headquarters
A Ugandan delegation recently visited QuestUAV in Northumberland. The purpose of the visit was to carry out an inspection of the Q200 drone mapping equipment they had purchased from Quest UAV.
An inspection team had been nominated by the Ugandan Ministry of Education and Sports. The team included representatives from Makerere, Kyambogo and Busitema Universities and was led by Mr Twesigye Boaz Collins of Benefit Worldwide Ltd.
Benefit Worldwide is a company invested in bringing new technology to researchers in Uganda. Makerere University delegates will receive training later this year in UK. The university team consisting of Moses, Michael, Joseph and Gregory.
The team also learned about the further considerations needed to operate a drone safely in Uganda. As a typical liaison visit, the group were picked up from the local train station, driven to the QuestUAV premises, and shown around the business, prior to the inspection and consultation.
