  1. Introduction to UAV Seminar Series:Introduction, Background and Description Vince Ambrosia Senior Research Scientist / Adjunct Faculty California State University – Monterey Bay NASA-Ames Research Center Moffett Field, California vincent.g.ambrosia@nasa.gov International Symposium on Remote Sensing of the Environment

  2. Seminar Objectives The objective of the seminar is to provide details of UAV technology and the operational details of the scientific missions carried out by UAV community. The topics will cover an historical perspective on UAVs; the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) UAV program (historical and current); the NASA Ikhana UAV platform; the Western States UAV Mission Series endeavors (which focuses on the use of the Ikhana); the development of mission planning; the Certificate of Authorization (COA) process in the US; and a final lecture on the other UAV missions that are ongoing or planned in the US.

  3. Seminar Topics 1) History of UAVs and the Role of NASA (2 hours) 2) The Ikhana Platform (4 hours) 3) Western States Fire Mission Series (4 hours) 4) Mission Planning / Direction for UAVs (3 hours) 5) UAV COA Process (3 hours) 6) Other UAV Missions (4 hours)
