Phoenix-based Unmanned Vehicle University (UVU) is coming to Toronto, Ontario, to host a three-day ‘UAV Fundamentals Seminar.’
The event, hosted by Paul Dragos, dean of the school of flight training at UVU, will take place at the Sheraton Toronto Airport Hotel and Conference Center on Sept. 19-21.
“This UAV Fundamentals Seminar introduces you to an industry that is predicted to create 70,000 high paying careers over the next several years at salaries ranging from $90,000 to more than $200,000,” says John Minor, UVU provost. “Our goal as a university is to prepare the UAV pilots of the future so that they can capitalize on the revolution that’s already very much underway.”
The courses include as follows:
Day 1: welcome and introductions; definitions and concepts; UAV commercial applications and economic impact; how to start a UAV business; UAV military operations; UAV sensors and characteristics; and alternative propulsion system design considerations.
Day 2: communications and data links; UAS conceptual design; improving UAV reliability; regulation and Department of Defense operations; UAV alternative navigation; human machine interface; UAV autonomous control, and the future of UAVs.
Day 3: UAV alternative navigation; UAV weaponization; UAV autonomous control; and future UAV designs and roles.
The $1,499 seminar also counts as four credits towards a university degree program. Any active-duty member of the U.S. Armed Forces will receive a $100 discount.
