Unmanned Aircraft Systems are aircraft that can function without the presence of a human flight staff onboard. The UAS industry is experiencing significant growth, calling for more maintenance technicians to obtain their UAS certification.
The UAS certificate will concentrate on the maintenance and repair of the components of unmanned aerial systems to include: unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), ground control stations (GCSs), understanding the function of data links or the communication/guidance system between vehicle and satellites (line of sight), and a basic understanding of computer networks and their functionality within UAS. Courses are designed to create a skilled UAS Maintenance Technician with a broad understanding of commonly used UAS platforms at the functional level.
