Commercial drones aren’t designed with a specific mission or user in mind. There are inherent performance losses and added operating costs, when using them for off-design conditions.
This is a niche program that will get you on the fast track to developing your own in-house, unmanned aircraft, and customize drone platforms and services for streamlined solutions.
The core training and consulting portion of the program takes six weeks. Each week contains an introductory video, followed by multimedia lessons containing training topics and design tools.
