The campus community and members of the public are invited to a free webinar at noon this Thursday, Oct. 25, about how businesses can use drones to improve supply chains.

The webinar is titled "Stop 'Droning' on about Unmanned Aircraft Systems and do something about it: Your Competitors are Ahead of You." It is part of the Master of Science in Operations Management program's Lunch and Learn Webinar Series.

The webinar will provide an overview of compliance requirements, startup costs and new uses cases changing the way operations managers function and improve efficiency. Supply chain management and delivery, construction management, quality management inspections and homeland security requirements are already heavily invested in UAS integration.

The webinar will begin at noon, and registration is required at this link: https://uaineg.wufoo.com/forms/z1v8syvf0szowgy/

The webinar will feature Rich Ham, associate director of the Master of Science in Operations Management program.

Ham retired from the United States Air Force and the Department of Homeland Security, where he held various regional and national leadership roles. He is a recognized subject matter expert in Homeland Security, as well as consulting domestically and internationally for the United States Government.

Ham teaches courses in Leadership, Global Competition, Homeland Security and Unmanned Aircraft Systems (drones). He designed and led UAS courses for research and industrial applications, teaching platform and sensor selection criteria, and compliance requirements.

He organized the state's first UAS Summit and is spearheading efforts to establish an Arkansas chapter of the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International.
