A free textbook is included with the course. Introduction to Unmanned Systems, Air, Ground, Sea and Space, Technologies and Commercial Applications, describes unmanned air, ground, sea and space vehicles in detail. The introduction is written by Brian Binnie, the test pilot for SpaceShipOne and second commercial astronaut. The chapters are written by the world expert Unmanned Vehicle University faculty members that have PhDs in engineering and an average of 25 years of experience in unmanned systems. After describing each type of unmanned vehicle, the book goes on to describe the technologies that are common between these vehicles such as sensors, communications and autonomy. The book is beautifully illustrated with 100 color photos to make the content easy to understand. It is written at a level for the average person with no equations or graphs. The book is intended as an undergraduate textbook in unmanned systems and has questions to challenge the student at the end of each chapter. It can also be used to motivate those seeking to establish a career in unmanned systems. Commercial applications for unmanned systems are interleaved throughout the book. The book is used as a reference for the Unmanned Vehicle University UAV Fundamentals Course, the most comprehensive UAV course in the world. There is even a chapter on technology transition for commercial applications written by an AUVSI Chapter President. Purchase this soon to be collectors item written by the world experts in unmanned systems. Prepare yourself for a future in this exciting new industry. It will be a hundreds of billions to a trillion dollar industry in the future. Will you be prepared to take advantage of the new opportunities in the unmanned systems career field.
Doctor (Col Ret) Jerry LeMieux is the President of Unmanned Vehicle University The only University in the world licensed to grant Doctorate, Masters and Certificate Degrees in Unmanned Systems Engineering. The University's primary focus area is on Unmanned Air, Ground, Sea and Space Systems education and training. Doctor LeMeiux is an engineering PhD and pilot with over 40 years and 10,000 hours of aviation experience.
He has over 20 years of experience in program management, systems engineering and test and evaluation for AEW, fighter and tactical data link acquisition programs. He has experience with research, development, technology transfer, integration and flight test and evaluation. He has consulted on numerous airspace issues for the US Federal Aviation Administration, Air Force, Army, Navy, NASA, DARPA and all major defense contractors.
As the Network Centric Systems Wing Commander he led 1,300 personnel and managed 100 network and data link acquisition programs with a portfolio valued at more than $22 billion. He served at the numbered Air Force Level, responsible for the development, acquisition and sustainment of over 300 information superiority, combat ops and combat support programs that assure integrated battlespace dominance for the Air Force, DoD, US agencies, and Allied forces.
Doctor LeMieux is currently working with the FAA sponsored RTCA Special Committee 203 on legislative and airspace issues related to integrating unmanned air systems into US National Airspace. He is a National Expert and has authored a technical paper with the FAA on worldwide spectrum requirements for all US unmanned aircraft (presented by the FAA at the World Radiocommunication Conference in 2012). He has recently contributed to the first FAA Certificate of Authority for a US Army UAS using a ground based Sense and Avoid solution.
Doctor LeMieux has over 20 years of course development and teaching experience at major Universities and Aviation Schools including; MIT, Boston University, University of Maryland, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University and Daniel Webster College. He has taught aeronautical, mechanical and electrical engineering and advanced mathematics courses at the undergraduate and graduate levels.
Doctor LeMieux holds the Airline Transport License and was an airline pilot for Delta Air Lines for over 20 years. He has over 10,000 hours of flying experience with both domestic and international operations. For over 10 years he was the Executive Safety Chairman for the Airline Pilots Association in Washington DC where he was responsible for resolving airline safety issues at US National airports.
He is also the author of the first textbook on Unmanned Systems: Introduction to Unmanned Systems, Air, Ground, Sea and Space, Technologies and Commercial applications. The introduction is written by Brian Binnie, test pilot for SpaceShipOne and second commercial astronaut.
