The project was approved Friday by the university’s UAS Research Compliance Committee, which considers privacy issues when the university’s unmanned aircraft are used.

Organized by biology department faculty and staff at UND, the project will use an unmanned aircraft to test applications for monitoring wildlife populations and habitats at Sullys Hill National Game Preserve near Devils Lake.

Researchers assured the committee steps will be taken to ensure the UAS don’t invade the privacy of homeowners near the area and visitors to the preserve.
