Integration and operation of research Unmanned Aircraft Systems

A three to five-day course, 26-30 September 2016


     training on F450 platform

The course, split into 3 section, aims to give researchers the specialist knowledge and understanding to effectively use UAS as a support asset to their research. The first part of the course focuses on the theoretical knowledge and assumes the audience doesn’t have an aeronautical/aerospace background; it covers aircraft types, aerodynamics, and avionics. The second part of the course is a practical approach and covers UAS specific systems and systems integration: Sensors, datalink, flight control systems, flight dynamics, aircraft handling. The last part of the course is also practical and focuses on the operations and deployment of the system and covers field equipment, check list, health and safety considerations and includes Fixed-wing and multi-rotor flying sessions.

For those interested in pursuing permission for ‌aerial work, we offer a 2 day extension to the course where an National Qualified Entity will come in and provide further training and assessments to qualify for PFAW.
