Advanced coastal drone missions

This course introduces students to Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) operations using rotary drones including the DJI Matrice 600 rotary and the Sensefly eBeeSQ fixed wing drone (shown here).

Our third course helps student pilots fill their log book with commercial flight time. They are assigned the task of carrying out missions for our collaborators.

This course introduces students to advanced unmanned aerial systems (UAS) mission planning and operation, as they progress to higher level simulation and mission planning/ execution. Lab/Field: Student teams launch, recover and maintain advanced Unmanned Aerial Systems. Current projects are underway and planned in wetlands restoration monitoring, seagrass bed mapping, whale and salmon observation.
