Unmanned Vehicle University to Host Drone Seminar in Orlando

Publish date:

For the first time ever, Orlando area residents will have the chance to participate in a drone fundamentals course that will teach the basics of safe operation and the many capabilities of unmanned aerial vehicles. The seminar, hosted by Unmanned Vehicle University in partnership with InfoComm, will take place at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL, on June 15 and 16. Based in Phoenix, AZ, Unmanned Vehicle University is the first and only university in the world that is licensed to offer graduate degree programs in unmanned systems engineering and project management certificates in unmanned systems technology.

“This is an intense two-day course that covers all aspects of UAS and drone technology, which are typically discussed in a 12-week UAV/301/601 unmanned aircraft fundamentals course,” said Unmanned Vehicle University provost John Minor. “This course provides new participants to the UAS and drone industry with a quick, comprehensive overview of all the technologies involved with the safe and effective operations of a drone.”

Concepts covered in the seminar include sensors and payloads, data and communication links, propulsion systems, and navigation systems. “By the end of this course, participants will be able to describe the various UAS/drone components and accurately explain the strengths and weaknesses of UAS/drone com/data link,” Minor added. “This session is an invaluable experience for anyone looking to learn more about drone technology, especially AV professionals who are looking to integrate drones into commercial applications.”

For $1,499, participants will receive a comprehensive introduction to a rapidly growing career opportunity. “Our two-day seminar is optimal for people looking to increase their UAV employment opportunities, start their own UAV business, or begin a career as a UAV Pilot,” Minor said. “There are unlimited opportunities for drones in commercial applications in markets like production, security, and healthcare. We strive to provide professionals with the tools to safely incorporate drones in these markets.”

Following the two-day seminar, Unmanned Vehicle University will be hosting free unmanned systems and drone education sessions for all registered attendees at InfoComm 2015. These presentations are designed to give participants insight into the commercial applications for drone technology as part of an overall AV solution.
