YEREVAN. – Students and pupils from Sisian town of Armenia’s Syunik province want to develop drones on their own.
The representative of Sisian’s SarsUp Technological Center, Hayk Yeranosyan, told Armenian News – NEWS.am that the specialists of Armenian-Indian Center for Excellence in Information and Communication Technologies have already held training courses in Sisian.
The center specialists prepared instructors for educational engineering labs.
Getting up an appetite for new, the enthusiasts now want to make drones whose speed will exceed that of ordinary unmanned aerial vehicles. Both young and old will work on this project: the center unites lovers of technology of any age, starting from pupils to 40-year-olds.
“We were supported by Instigate and National Instruments. We’ve got a 3D printer, by which we ourselves made the drone’s carcase. We want to think and work ourselves. We want to try, search the Internet and model all by ourselves. And we want minimal assistance from outside,” Yeranosyan said.
The Sisian specialists presented the first drone made by them at the DigiTec Expo 2016 technological exhibition held in Yerevan.
