Mr. Musgrave,

The following communication regarding a request for records pursuant to the California Public Records Act has been forwarded to my office for processing.

In reviewing the items in your request for records, I interpret the items to be focused on administrative records involving the acquisition of aerial drones or UAVs in support of safety and security operations by the UC San Diego Police Department or departments in cooperation with the UCPD.

In conferring with appropriate campus departments, I have determined that the campus does not own or maintain a UAV for the purposes of safety and security, nor has any present or future plans to acquire a UAV.

In my research, I do note that academic researchers with the Scripps Institution of Oceanography are involved with a project which proposes to utilize a UAV to measure and collect oceanographic information and is published at the website below.

http://airsea.ucsd.edu/index.php?option=com_content&task=section&id=5&Itemid=39

Pursuant to the California Public Records Act (cc 6255) academic research information is primarily exempt from disclosure under the CPRA. Based upon your requests for records I am unable to identify any other departments and I have ascertained that we do not have records responsive to your requests for Items 1-3. If you have any information that would focus the request, please contact me.

Shawn Musgrave 08/07/2012

Dear Ms. Johnson:

Thank you for your prompt reply to my request. By way of clarification, please send all documents related to the following:

All contracts between UCSD and government agencies or private corporations for services relating to aerial drones, UAs, UAVs and UASs ("drones"). Services include research into drone hardware, drone flight systems and training for drone operators, as well as usage of UCSD laboratory space and equipment. Please include: any project proposals submitted by UCSD to government agencies, contracts between UCSD and government agencies, contracts between UCSD and private corporations, budgets for all contracted research and cost allocation documentation.

Please let me know if I can clarify this request further. Thank you in advance for your help and cooperation in this matter. I look forward to receiving your response soon.

Sincerely,

Shawn Musgrave

CPRA, Requests 11/12/2013

Mr. Musgrove,

We received a request from a Joshua Marxen regarding your open request. Please note the following case title when communicating with my office regarding your request.

UCSD CPRA 2012-115 UAV Research Documents - 8-07-2012

I began a search for relevant documents last fall, per your request. To date, I have identified potential research projects with include aerial drones primarily for the Albedo Project about 10 years ago. Given my workload, I have a series of requests that predate this request, which I am working on completing in order of receipt. This request is considered open and will be responded to as we seek relevant documents which may be in the University's custody, though all items are faculty research projects which may or may not have been published and subject to review by the faculty member.

CPRA, Requests 01/17/2014

Mr. Musgrove,

I have the attached listing of sponsored projects identified that may have responsive records available. I have completed my earlier case work and will spend the next 4 weeks completing your request. I want to confirm with you that you are interested in these projects which may or may not meet your definition of a "drone or UAV" that conducts surveillance.

Please note that we assess a per page copy/scan cost of $.20 and I wanted to confirm you would like copies of the records we may have related to these projects before spending additional review and redaction effort.

Thank you again for your patience and understanding. Our office has achieved a new milestone in requests for records from the public in the last year.
