Laura Recoskie, MBA 2009 wins 1st place in an entrepreneurship and innovation competition

Laura Recoskie and her team members (Steven Recoskie and Sébastien Touchette) won 1st place in the graduate students category of the 2012 PEI Student Competition organized by the Faculty of Engineering. Their challenge was  to develop a portable, low cost and long endurance system capable of providing crisis management solutions and search and rescue support. The product solution that was presented is an autonomous, low cost, hybrid powered, dirigible, unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), capable of operating up to 96 hours.
