UAS Design

This course provides the principles and concepts essential to the design and operation of unmanned and autonomous systems (UAS) and their subsystems. Communications, components, and networking are explored as the infrastructure to ensure system and subsystem interoperability. Students will examine technologies dealing with facets of mobile computing platforms, machine-learning, network protocols and communication systems to support intra-system and inter-system coordination. Topics include system requirements, constraints, dependability, regulations, communications, cybersecurity, avionics and sensors. Prerequisite: UAS-140. (3-0-3) NOTE: Students enrolled in this course incur an additional lab fee of $350
