Welcome to our anonymous survey. We will neither seek nor collect any unique identifying information about you. It should take you roughly 12 minutes to complete this brief questionnaire.
Dr. Sean Anderson and his students at California State University Channel Islands are conducting this survey on behalf of their ESRM 370 undergraduate class and their Aerial and Aquatic Robotic Research (“AARR”) Laboratory group. We are studying the current use of and attitudes towards Unmanned Aerial Vehicles. These devices are variously also known as UAV, Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Remotely Piloted Systems (RPS), or simply “drones.” While the military use of these systems may often be what people think of when they hear about this technology, we are exploring the rapidly-expanding, non-military use of systems created by hobbyists, researchers, and private industry.
We expect to conclude this survey by late April of 2017 and subsequently post our results by early May to both our blog (https://aarr.piratelab.org) and our suite of social media outlets. Please check these sites in early May for our polling results or feel free to contact us with any questions. Our contact (PIRatELabAARR@gmail.com) and links to our web sites will be provided again at the end of this survey.
Please note that this survey has been approved by the Institutional Review Board of CSU Channel islands. Any questions regarding your rights as a participant in this survey can be directed to that board via firstname.lastname@example.org.
