UAS 463 - Introduction to Autopilots and Mission Planning for Non-Aviators

Credits: 3

Focus is on mission planning and operations within the context of the simulated environment. Students are introduced to commercial, open source and/or proprietary autopilots and are required to complete simulated training missions with the ultimate goal of demonstrating skills competency and knowledge acquisition through evaluations of proficiency (e.g., through “check-outs” or “check-rides”). Students integrate autopilots into selected fixed-wing platforms. Intended for non-UAS majors and those without the FAA certifications and ratings required for UAS 370, UAS 461 and UAS 465.

Studio format incorporating lecture and lab elements.
