UAS115 Intro to Unmanned Aerial Systms

This course will provide students with insight into the Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) industry through the introduction of UAS history, systems elements, regulatory system, COA (Certificate of Approval) process, operations, geospatial data, automation and autonomy, safety assessments, detect, sense and avoid, sensors and payloads, human factors, and the future of UAS. (3 units; Fall)

UAS215 Sm Unmanned Aerial Systms Flt Lb

Several stages of flight simulation and actual flight will include EP (external pilot) training, FPV (first person view), and programming the autopilot for autonomous flight. Additional lab fee. Prerequisite: UAS 115. (1 unit; Spring)

Upper Division Requirements

FLT326 Human Factors

A review of the psychological human factors that affect aviation, including individual and organizational factors, and technology-induced errors. Includes common human errors and detection and recovery skills. The chain of events leading up to an aircraft accident are examined in light of specific aircraft accidents. (3 units; Spring)

UAS325 Med Unmanned Aerl Sys Oprtns I

The course will be a blend of academics and simulator sorties on a specific unmanned aerial system command and control system for medium size UAS and beyond line of site (BLOS) operations. The academics and simulator sorties will include preflight operations, normal command and control, recovery, and emergencies including lost link, lost communications, loss of power, and loss of battery power to mention a few of the aspects. The class will include simulators that allow the student to practice what they have learned in the academics throughout the course culminating in scenario-based training of several operational missions. Prerequisite: UAS 215. (3 units; Fall)

Upper Division Elective Requirements

Complete six (6) units from the following:

COM308 Interpersonal Communications

This class examines the dynamics of the two-person communication process. Students will study the development of self-concept, self-disclosure, perception, listening, and feedback as they affect the communication process. Non-verbal communication, attitudes, beliefs, and values will also be explored. (3 units; Spring)
