The Institute for Unmanned Aerial Systems (IUAS) at the University of Applied Sciences Offenburg has over eight years of experience in the research, development and operation of flight control systems and unmanned aerial vehicles for a range of industrial applications. There are currently 10 experienced permanent employees working at the institute, around 20 students and seven professors from various faculties.

Since its existence, IUAS has successfully completed more than 20 funded research projects and is currently researching five active projects with a total annual budget of around € 300,000.

Professor Schröder is head of the Institute for Unmanned Aerial Systems (IUAS) and has been successfully cooperating with academic partners from France for more than 30 years. He was responsible for numerous cooperative doctorates, was active in two German-French INTERREG programs and numerous other national and international funded research projects. As a physicist he has many years of experience in the field of navigation and precision instruments as well as the design of helicopters and surface aircraft.
