The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems (AUVSI) sponsors an annual Student Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) Competition. SOUS aims at stimulating and fostering interest in unmanned air systems, technologies and careers. It requires the design, integration, and demonstration of a system capable of conducting air operations which includes autonomous flight, navigation of a specified course, and use of onboard payload sensors. The Patuxent River Naval Air Museum hosted 2013 collegiate and high school teams for opening ceremonies on June 19.
