WHAT: The Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) sector is one of the fastest-growing and most dynamic segments in the aviation industry. The majority of UAS growth has been in support of military and security operations; however, recent congressional mandates have unlocked the civilian market to a broad range of uses, including aerial photography, precision agriculture, mapping, environmental monitoring and public safety.
This three-day UAS fundamentals course is designed to identify the key concepts and challenges of UAS operations, including system components and classification, UAS design and limitations, issues around airspace integration and regulation, and future and current trends affecting the UAS industry.
The course is aimed at UAS engineers, transitioning military UAS operators, mission coordinators, entrepreneurs, field service representatives and UAS technicians and program managers.
