Additional Information

As Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) technology becomes more commercially available, the drone industry has grown to reach the general public. This presentation provides an overview of the utility of drones and dives into the engineering technology. The functional operation of the aircraft, ground control, power system, and payloads will be described. Attendees will learn about drone flight dynamics, how to compare flight systems and peripherals, and best practices in operation. Where possible, real drone equipment will be available for show-and-tell demonstrations of the drone equipment.
