Fullerton College

The Fullerton Drone Lab is the new drone technology program at Fullerton College. The program consists of piloting courses as well as application training emphasizing in construction, inspection, surveying and public safety. In addition, the actual lab course brings engineering, machining and programming students together to develop aerial, terrestrial or submersible drones to address industry issues. Degrees in autonomous systems development and certificates in skills like: thermal imaging, topographic surveying, and inspection are available or being developed.

 The Ohio State University

The Ohio State University is home to a burgeoning UAV community. Under the umbrella of #OSUAviation we are proud to be researching and using drones in the fields of data collection, photogrammetry and urban air mobility. Our Aerospace Research Center is involved in UAV integration into the National Airspace System, aerodynamic research, and policy development among other projects. The University’s airport is the first FAR Part 139 certificated airport in the country to use UAVs as a component of our airfield management practices. From the end-user side, Ohio State’s Center for Aviation studies has created, and oversees, an FAR Part 107 training course for the public and is implementing curricula for students within the traditional fixed wing pilot track to better prepare them for the advances of tomorrow.

University of North Dakota – Research Institute for Autonomous Systems

The University of North Dakota, Research Institute for Autonomous Systems (RIAS) is built upon the core UND values of community, lifelong learning and discovery. With a well-articulated plan, expertise across a broad set of disciplines, and an organized, committed team, we continue to RIAS to the challenge of providing autonomous technologies and policies that serve society.

 Utah State University Aviation Technology

Utah State University has three areas where they focus their unmanned aerial systems technology: education, research and outreach.

The Aviation Technology program at Utah State University prides itself in applying cutting-edge technology with exceptional training to produce high quality pilots and technicians the industry needs. Three B.S. degrees are offered in the Aviation Technology program — Professional Pilot for fixed wing and rotorcraft (helicopters), Maintenance Management, and Aviation Management with an emphasis in UAS or Airport Operations.   

As an R1 research institution, AggieAir offers the service of providing potential clients with time sensitive, high resolution, multi-spectral aerial imagery.  The Remote Sensing Service Center has over 15 years of experience in areas of sUAV, from the initial planning stages of flight development, liaising directly with the Federal Aviation Authority (FAA), applying for Certificates of Authorization (COA), to flight planning and actual mission flights.  

The Aggie Drone Academy, under USU Extension, was created to educate and train youth, high school educators, community organizations and first responders how to become certified, fly and utilize UAS.
