Drones will be the subject of a three-day conference in Manhattan later this month.

Unmanned aerial vehicles are viewed as a growing industry globally, and the Oct. 14-16 conference in Manhattan will focus on their possible uses in agriculture, energy, emergeny response and the environment.

There also will be discussion about the role that drone development could play in economic development and job creation in Kansas.

The conference is being organized and sponsored by the emerging Consortium for Kansas Unmanned Systems, or CKUS, a group informally comprised of members of industry, government and academia, including Kansas State University, the University of Kansas and Wichita State University.
