Students learn how a unmanned aircraft system (UAS) is designed, constructed, and maintained. Students will demonstrate the synthesis of knowledge of UAS technology with knowledge of the UAS environment through practical application problem and related capstone drone mission. Students will learn problem solving through drone technology, drone design and construction, selection of materials and operating systems, selection or design of sensors, drone swarm programming and demonstration, swarm drone light show. Students will design and build a drone with payload for a sensor mission. Students will use their drone and sensor payload to map a specified site. The challenge will address safety critical risks associated with flying UAVs in the National Airspace system (NAS), drone design and build, drone sensor payloads, and data collection for final analysis.
