UAS Operations

This course provides an overview of the principles used in the design and operation of unmanned and autonomous systems (UAS) to support applications in air, ground, water, and space environments. The platform, sensors, power plant, control, and communications systems that are required in unmanned and autonomous systems will be explored with respect to function and interaction. The student will conduct a detailed examination of the components of unmanned systems and the critical parts played in operations. Topics include component capabilities, limitations, selection, overall system design concepts, criticality to system function, and applications in the civilian, commercial, and military fields. Prerequisite: None. (3-0-3)
