FAST101 – Small Unmanned Aerial Systems (sUAS) and Applied Photogrammetry.

Integrate cutting-edge small Unmanned Aerial Systems and Sensors into your professional work flow. This five-day, fully immersive curriculum will provide instruction on UAS applications; FAA Part 107 regulations; UAS mission planning; flight training; aerial mapping and modeling; and business, operational, organizational, legal and risk management matters.

Increase your ROI by expertly and safely operating unmanned vehicles to acquire highest quality auditable data and deliver actionable analysis at lower cost and cycle time while reducing occupational and institutional risk.

What is FAST about?

This first-of-its-kind short course is designed for the geoscience, environmental, civil, oil and gas and mining engineering communities, as well as professional land surveyors.

Field sessions will enhance the classroom instruction with hands on flight training and problem solving.

Participants will gain hands-on exposure to high definition aerial photography and photogrammetry, development of Digital Elevation Models and 3-D volumetric solutions, and thermal and multi-spectral remote sensing techniques.

The course will include a capstone project at a historically significant landmark location.

Participants will, upon successful completion of the course, possess an understanding of the operational and organizational management, safety and risk management, and legal considerations for an enterprise UAS deployment.

Participants primed for integrating small unmanned aerial systems and sensors into their professional or academic work flow.
