Drones - How to purchase

University Purchasing has recently updated the Category Buyer Listing (link is external) to include Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) or Drones under the AIRCR Category (previously under SATEL).

Ohio State is committed to providing an academically vigorous, safe and secure environment for all individuals and organizations. UAS offer opportunities for teaching and research, and provide the university community with valuable experiences in a wide range of academic disciplines. Operation of UAS is regulated by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and by federal, state and local laws. Anyone who seeks to operate UAS on university property, at any university-sponsored event or activity, or use UAS acquired with university resources must receive advance approval in accordance with this policy and comply with all restrictions or conditions set by the university and all applicable laws.
