This course chronicles the development of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), and their role in the aviation industry, as well as an increased awareness of the importance of UAS in modern commercial and military operations. This course chronicles the development of UAS, their operations and applications. An analysis of UAS is covered, including structural and mechanical factors, avionics, navigation, flight controls, remote sensing, guidance control, propulsion systems, and logistical support. Operations of UAS include an examination and analysis of their integration with commercial and military airspace, air traffic control and civilian/federal air and ground operations. The course will also look at past, current and future applications of UAS operations, with an emphasis on commercial applications.

The goal of this course is to provide an understanding of Unmanned Aerial Systems, their supportability issues and their role in the aviation industry, as well as an increased awareness of the importance of Unmanned Aerial Systems in modern commercial and military operations.

Upon course completion, the student will be able to:

1. Describe and evaluate the evolution of Unmanned Aerial Systems as it applies to current and future operations.

2. Analyze how Unmanned Aerial Systems operations are integrated within air traffic control operations.

3. Evaluate the need for ground crew qualifications and certifications, including vehicle operators, maintenance personnel and logistical support personnel.

4. Describe the fundamental Unmanned Aerial Systems configurations, systems and components required for operations.

5. Analyze and evaluate the development of current military and civil uses of Unmanned Aerial Systems to include the economic, social and regulatory environment.

6. Compare structural and mechanical factors unique to the unmanned aerial vehicle element of the system.

7. Describe and analyze advanced guidance and control systems and requirements.

8. Evaluate and discuss potential future applications, including military and civil applications.

9. Demonstrate appropriate selection and application of a research method and statistical analysis (where required), specific to the course subject matter. (Effective July 1, 2013)

Located on the Daytona Beach Campus, the Jack R. Hunt Library is the primary library for all students of the Worldwide Campus. The Chief Academic Officer strongly recommends that every faculty member, where appropriate, require all students in his or her classes to access the Hunt Library or a comparable college-level local library for research. The results of this research can be used for class projects such as research papers, group discussion, or individual presentations. Students should feel comfortable with using the resources of the library.
