Practical use of mini and micro-Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for the Environmental Sciences- 20-24th August 2018-Oban, Scotland

This comprehensive five-day course will provide you with the knowledge and hands-on, practical skills required to undertake an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) campaign safely, legally and successfully for NERC oriented science. This course has been specifically designed for environmental scientists with an interest in the application of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles to their science and will take place at the Scottish Association for Marine Science (SAMS) in Oban, Scotland, where you will have the chance to fly both indoor and outdoor missions (weather permitting). Practical sessions will take the form of simulated mission scenarios, where you will have the chance to take an off-the shelf instrument, integrate it into a mini/micro UAV airframe. Alongside the hands-on sessions, lectures will be presented on topics including regulatory and air traffic legislation, flight planning and checks, and the miniaturisation and integration of instruments into UAV designs. If you have any questions, please contact Mica Jones –
