Flying a sUAS at Princeton

Small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS), also referred to as drones, model airplanes or remote control aircraft, are controlled aircraft without an onboard pilot. In higher education, the uses for sUAS are growing rapidly as technology advances and changes in federal regulations make possible a wide array of applications in research, education, and operations.

Princeton University has instituted procedures and policies for the use of sUAS. Policies are designed to ensure that use of sUAS by students and researchers on campus is conducted in a safe, responsible manner. Use of sUAS that is intrusive of personal privacy, or endangers the security of anyone in the Princeton community, will not be tolerated.
