Last Chance for YOU to Sign Up for Technical Short Course

on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

The Applied Technology Institute (ATI) is pleased to announce their one-day short course on Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) has been confirmed.

Do YOU need to learn more about this exciting field?

Worldwide commercial, government and military use of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) is expected to increase significantly in the future, placing unprecedented demands on scare radio resources. In fact, the Teal Group's 2009 market study estimates that UAS spending will almost double over the next decade, from current worldwide UAS expenditures of $4.4 billion annually to $8.7 billion within a decade.

Can you answer the follow questions?

• Can you tell a Global Hawk from a Predator-B at a glance?

• Did you know some of the small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) can land without a runway of any kind?

• What types of airspace are UAVs allowed to fly in?

With the practical knowledge you will gain from this course, you can recognize the different classes and types of UAVs, how to optimize their specific applications, how to evaluate and compare UAS capabilities, interact meaningfully with colleagues and master the UAS terminology. Whether you are a busy engineer, a technical expert or a project manager, you can enhance your understanding of these complex systems in a short time.
