Areas of Emphasis:

  • Overview of Regulatory Environment and Industry Issues
  • Systems Integration Factors in Platform Selection
  • Systems Design, Programming and Operation
  • C2 Data Links (Communications and Control Data Links, Line-of sight and Satellite)
  • UAS Remote Sensing (EO/IR, Multi-spectral, SAR: Advantages and Limitations)
  • UAS Operations Simulated and Actual UAS Operations using multiple platforms
  • UAS Instructor Techniques (CFI ground school for UAS)
  • Human Factors of UAS Operations (incorporated into existing courses)
  • Public Safety Aviation (Law enforcement, CBP, etc)

Unmanned Aircraft Systems Operations

  • Strong, liberal-arts education (critical thinking and Problem solving)
  • Strong Emphasis on Manned Aviation to ensure knowledge of regulatory, operations and safety environment (value-added for student and industry)
  • Enquiry-based UAS educationandtraining
  • (initial value to industry, long-term value to student)

Outcomes for Graduates

Graduates desiring employment in UAS industry will be able to bring certain abilities:

Conduct Needs Assessment – Are UAS a viable solution

Determine suitable platform and sensor

Develop a concept of employment

Develop training plan

Obtain approval of regulatory entities

Identify gaps in operations

UAS Effect on Collegiate Aviation

  • Collegiate aviation will need to include UAS in all curricula
  • Collegiate aviation program will need to ensure graduates possess strong critical thinking and problem solving skills
  • If deciding to train UAS pilots, students will need to have thorough familiarity with manned aviation environment
  • The demands placed on academia are going to be greater than ever to ensure programs are technologically relevant

New and emerging technologies challenge the traditional process of teaching and learning, and the way education is managed. There is no better example of this than in Unmanned Aircraft Systems

“An idealist believes the short run doesn't count. A cynic believes the long run doesn't matter. A realist believes that what is done or left undone in the short run determines the long run.”
