Drone Policy

Duke University interim statement

Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), or “drones,” have emerged as a new technology of interest both for hobbyists, and more importantly for possible research, academic, and commercial uses at Duke. Members of the Duke community are prepared to use drones for a variety of purposes. This policy will offer guidance regarding the type of drone operations acceptable and processes for requesting permission to operate drones on Duke property or for Duke purposes.
