12th Grade Courses: Coastal Resource Management Projects 1 and 2 (Fall and Spring Terms)

Our fourth year class follows a research-based education module that involves students working on longer-term projects directly with industry partners, building on their knowledge of drones and how they apply directly to their coastal habitat missions.


At this point our pilots have mastered flight platforms, sensors, and aircraft, have their FAA 107 commercial pilots licenses, their USI Safety Certificate, have demonstrated proficiency in drone flight, and have a strong logbook reflecting PIC (pilot in command) time on our most advanced sUAS technologies.

Many of our students have now mastered big data and aerial data management software, and realize a commercial drone pilot is required to manage data and software, that the client often needs their data managed (in addition to being collected).
