A graduate certificate in unmanned aircraft systems information assurance is being launched in fall 2018. The certificate provides working professionals and graduate students an educational foundation in an industry important to both military and civilian organizations. Enrolled students will learn how to protect UAS from cyberattacks and understand information assurance risk assessment principles applicable to UAS operations on land, sea, air or satellite.
“The mission of Kansas State Polytechnic is to provide students with industry-relevant, applicable learning that can be immediately transferred to the workforce,” said Verna Fitzsimmons, the campus’s CEO and dean. “Our new graduate certificate in unmanned aircraft systems information assurance provides students with necessary education and skills to make an impact in a globally relevant industry.”
The graduate certificate is beneficial to people preparing to work as UAS pilots, operators, in communications, payload, navigation, ground support, satellite coordination and air-to-air delivery. Courses incorporate current knowledge and practices in accordance with the terms of information assurance and security, communications security, and risk assessment as applicable to safe integration of UAS into national airspace and deployment for global counter-terrorism operations.
Welcome to drone day on the Adafruit blog. Every Monday we deliver the latest news, products and more from the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), quadcopter and drone communities. Drones can be used for video & photography (dronies), civil applications, policing, farming, firefighting, military and non-military security work, such as surveillance of pipelines. Previous posts can be found via the #drone tag and our drone / UAV categories.
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
