IMAV 2012 Competition Results

imav2012

The fifth time since 2004 the German Institute of Navigation (DGON) together with the “Technische Universität Braunschweig” has organized the “International Micro Air Vehicle Conference and Flight Competition IMAV 2012” in the “Lion City” Braunschweig from 03 to 06 July 2012.

The scientific head of the conference was the chairman of the DGON Council, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Vörsmann.

The 5-day event was implemented in the Volkswagenhalle Braunschweig and on the glider field Wilsche.

The high interest in the event was documented by the large number of participants: 140 out of 18 nations of all continents.
