The major design elements and configurations of small unmanned aircraft systems (sUAS; under 55 pounds) are discussed in this course. Students will review the various design configurations of fixed-wing and vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) sUAS platforms, including common classifications and primary subsystems. The theory of operation and examples of components used in the aerial, payload, ground-based command, control, and communication (C3), human, and support equipment elements will be explored. Students will gain exposure and experience evaluating possible design options for selection and integration into sUAS design configuration.
Because Unmanned Aircraft Systems are rapidly transforming a wide range of industries and recreational activities, anyone interested in the use of UAS can benefit from this course. Individuals from industries with interest in using or learning more about UAS include:
After completing this course, you should be able to demonstrate a comprehensive and broad-based understanding of UAS in the following areas:
