Jan 21, 2016 Homework: Read the two handouts and write a page synopsis on each one. Watch “Rise of the Drones” on Youtube. Reviewed the difference between pilot’s log and the UAS operator’s log: UAS operator’s log: Many more columns Both logs: Blank columns for personalization Payloads: Electro optical/infrared camera Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) o Sees through clouds and other obstacles o Will paint and record an image and will notice differences in terrain the second time through Maritime Radar MQ-9 POD o Allows to broadcast information to more people on the ground. o Has cameras on each bay to allow other ground stations to operate. Ground Control Station: Big, dumpster-like sea container Fairly heavy with all the electronic components. Block 25 GCS o Lots of screens with tons of data Block 50 Control Station o Much more futuristic Portable Ground Control Station ROVER Displays o Ground Control Station in a van o Allows for transport while controlling the UAS Data Link Ground Data Terminal (GDT) All line of sight Motorized and gimbaled, so it will follow the UAS and point to it to transmit and receive the signal. Relatively small Watched a video of the UAS First Life Saved Watched a video of an AR Drone Why Use an Unmanned Aircraft? Dull Dirty Dangerous DEEP Covert Research Environmental Economic NOVA Film “Rise of the Drones” 1. List the challenges you think engineers face when designing an unmanned aircraft in the context of current technology. Think of manned v. unmanned, think of large v. small and can they both accomplish the same task? Think of how this might be better accomplished with a manned/unmanned pair (if at all). 2. Take notes on 3 of the many different types of UAV’s mentioned in the program and list at least 3 of the advantages and disadvantages of each. 3. How is the mission effected be the Data link type? What mission type is the line of site better suited to? Remote split operations (Beyond the line of sight)?
