- Sinclair Community College’s UAS Training & Certification Center, in partnership with Riverside Research Institute, will conduct an Introduction to Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) workshop Thursday, Nov. 15. The one-day workshop will be held from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. in Building 13, Room 13-103, on Sinclair’s downtown Dayton campus.
UAS presents new business opportunities across multiple sectors. The Dayton region is positioned to be a leader in the UAS industry, leveraging strengths across advanced manufacturing, sensor technology, data analytics and more. This introductory workshop is the second of several offerings by Sinclair’s UAS Training & Certification Center that will provide participants the opportunity to explore and understand this emerging technology as it begins to take shape in the civil and commercial markets.
The UAS workshop participants will learn more about multiple components and applications of UAS technology and be introduced to specialized technologies, including newly developed sensors, aviation platforms, products, and applications. They will also learn more about the projected market opportunity in order to better understand where they or their company may fit as the region embraces the growing UAS market.
The Dayton region is already a UAS center of excellence because of the activities taking place at nearby Wright-Patterson AFB and the widespread aviation-related manufacturing within Ohio.
There is great interest among local and state officials to expand on the economic development opportunities associated with UAS technologies.
Sinclair is dedicated to providing skilled workers to employers in the Dayton region and beyond.
